Our apprenticeship training programme

Apprenticeships are the ideal way to support and invest in your workforce, employ new staff or upskill existing staff. We offer apprenticeships for business, the public sector, and the charity sector, drawing our  expertise of delivering highly-trusted training programmes, certificates and mentoring.

With our national apprenticeship programmes, you will develop a stronger, more resilient workforce for today and tomorrow. You will enable your apprentices and employees to reach their full potential. As a national RoATP - registered training provider, we can offer advice and support around the apprenticeship levy and other apprenticeship finance options.

Apprenticeship Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

New to apprenticeships for business?

As a national apprenticeship training provider on the national Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP), we’ll support you at every step of becoming an apprenticeship employer.

What is the Apprenticeship Levy?

The Apprenticeship Levy is a UK tax on employers with an annual payroll of over £3 million. 

Organisations who pay the Apprenticeship Levy will receive levy funds to pay for apprenticeship training. The government will add 10%.

Smaller organisations don't pay the Apprenticeship Levy. To support apprenticeships within these smaller organisations, the government will fund 95% of the apprenticeship training, meaning you must only pay 5% toward the cost of training and assessing your apprentice.
