Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes that are available from GCSE equivalent up to degree level.

They’re open to new and existing employees and enable you to train your workforce to meet the current and future skills needs of your business; tailoring your training to your specific industry and creating a loyal and valued workforce that will support and help your business to grow.

We are one of the largest providers of apprenticeships in the West Midlands – we have more than 1,500 apprentices training with us. We also provide a large number of programmes across the whole of England. 

We have a dedicated Business Training Solutions Team, who will work with you to assess your training needs and identify the right pathways for your organisation.

They’ll identify funding sources based on the apprentice, programme and size of your business and then advertise your vacancy, screen the candidates and recruit the best individual for the job. If you are looking to recruit new people, we can advertise your vacancy for you.

 

The Apprenticeship Levy

Levy Transfer - If you’re a small to medium-sized business and do not currently pay the Apprenticeship Levy, you could receive help with funding to train apprentices for your organisation.

Recruiting new staff - If you need an apprentice in the future you will need to sign up NOW to reserve apprenticeship funding. Full access to the Apprenticeship Service is now available for ALL employers, including levy-payers.

This service allows employers to:
• Reserve their apprenticeship funding
• Select their chosen provider from the Register of Apprenticeship Training
