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

I would encourage any manager who wishes to develop/update on their existing skills, or those managers that would like to gain new skills to participate in one of the numerous training courses run by Fuel Learning.

The course leaders have up to date working and on the job knowledge and use a presentation that openly encourages participation and enjoyment, although at times you will have to put your thinking caps on as not all tasks are paper exercises!!

Their courses are well structured and all material excellently presented, easy to understand and follow.

I have attended many managerial courses during my 20 years in the business and found Fuel Learning deliver the best. As a manager for Norbert Dentressangle - Marks and Spencer, Hardwick, Warrington, we are encourage to put into practice what we learn and I have certainly done this thanks to Fuel Learning.

The course was tailored to EMT and the trainer had great knowledge of the business. I have attended several leadership courses and this was by far the best as it was very genuine and the trainer had a real passion and flair for getting the candidates engaged and see what the benefits are to EMT and their personal leadership style. Excellent.
