Are you an employer, thinking about taking on an apprentice? If you have questions or are unsure how it all works, give our team a call on 01273 934278, we are always happy to have a chat about your options, and how we can support you.
We can advertise your vacancy on the National Apprenticeships website, our website and also social media.
We will support you to select the most suitable candidate for your business and invite them to our training centre to undertake an initial assessment.
You will receive advice and help with enrolment, including setting up your Digital Apprenticeship Account if you don’t already have one.
We will monitor and assess your apprentice towards their qualification through regular planned reviews and give feedback on progress towards targets.
Employers with a payroll bill of less than £3 million a year do not need to pay the levy. From 1st April 2019 for non-levy paying employers’ new starts in England, at least 95% of the apprenticeship training and assessment costs will be paid for by the government. We ask these employers to make a 5% cash contribution (co-investment) to the cost, paid directly to the provider. The government will cover the remainder up to the agreed funding band maximum for the chosen standard or framework.
The funding is secured through the Digital Account employers need to set up at the start of the apprentice’s employment.
