Employers in England are increasingly turning to apprenticeships to support the learning and development needs of their employees. The landscape for businesses to thrive is changing and creating challenging skills gaps across all sectors.

Through our own research and working with organisations we selected the apprenticeships that address some of these shortages.

About the Apprenticeship Levy

The apprenticeship levy in a government initiative established in 2017, that aims to provide learning and development opportunities for working professionals throughout their career.

Any employer in England can access the levy to fund training for their employees. Only employers with a salary bill greater than £3m per year pay into the levy fund.

  • Available to all employers in England

  • Access fully-funded qualifications

  • Enhance your existing L&D offering

Employer & Apprentice Commitment

A key contributor to the success of apprentices is the support of the Employer to commit to the 20% off the job time, allow the apprentices to complete/attend/participate in off-the-job training during working hours and provide the opportunity and resources to gain the learning outcomes needed to achieve the apprenticeship.

Apprentices will spend up to 80% of their working hours in their productive job role and some of this time must be about consolidating the new knowledge, skills and behaviours, gained from off-the-job activities, so that they are fully occupationally competent at the end of the programme.
