Apprenticeships For Employers
Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study and take 1 to 4 years to complete depending on their level.
We pride ourselves on our excellent Apprenticeship success rates and the work we do with employers and learners in industry. In addition our ‘Vacancy Matching Service’ helps by matching the most suitable applicants in line with Employer requirements.
From April 2017 the Apprenticeship Levy will replace all taxpayer funding of apprenticeships for both public and private sector companies of all sizes. Read more about the Apprenticeship Levy.
