Using the apprenticeship levy for existing employees

Apprenticeships are a vital tool in upskilling your workforce, increasing staff retention rates, confidence and productivity.

Far from focusing on just basic tools and techniques, apprenticeship programmes can provide even senior managers and leaders with powerful new tools that they can make immediate use of in the workplace. 

Your levy funds must be used within 24 of them entering your account and they must be used to fund apprenticeship training. They cannot be used to fund any other training activities.

Testimonials

As part of my management training programme I had to complete Functional Skills in English and maths. I felt anxious and nervous as I hadn’t been in a learning environment for many years. However, my teacher (Vicky) was very understanding and patient, she understood my concerns. I can honestly say I have grown in confidence and I found the classes to be very practical and useful.

I had great encouragement and support from my teacher throughout the whole process. Without the support from my teacher and the Functional skills qualification, I would have struggled to complete the apprenticeship.

From what I learnt from my course, I have implemented this into my daily working practice. I have learnt so many great English and maths techniques which are extremely useful. I'm very confident when sending emails with my grammar and punctuation. I have become a confident reader whereas in the past I did not enjoy this. I have to work out various areas for our customers when pricing jobs. I used to really struggle with this aspect of my job, with the additional support from Vicky I no longer struggle.
