How do apprenticeships work?
Don’t worry, they are really straightforward. They are just like hiring a regular employee but with a Training Provider as an intermediary. You go through the same process of interviewing and hiring the candidate with the added benefit of the process costing you nothing. Then, we onboard your learner onto a programme and support you and your apprentice throughout the duration. It’s like having another manager to share the workload with.

How does funding work?
Our apprenticeships range from £6,000 – £11,000. However, don’t panic, here’s the exciting part; there are different ways of funding apprenticeships depending on your organisation. You can explore two primary routes for funding: Co-Investment (Smaller businesses) and Levy Contributions (Larger businesses).
If your organisation has an annual wage bill of less than £3mil you’ll be entitled to an eye-watering 95% discount on the total price of the apprenticeship. That is correct, 95%! This is because the UK government will actually pay 95% of the total cost of apprenticeships if you’re classed as a smaller organisation. This scheme is called Co-Investment. Ultimately, this means that you’ll only required to pay the small price of between £300 – £550 for our courses. That’s less than the cost of a recruiter alone!
What’s even better is if you have less than 50 staff in your organisation the UK Government will pay 100% of the costs for apprenticeships!
If your organisation boasts an annual wage bill exceeding £3 million, legal obligations come into play, meaning you have to pay Levy Contributions. This entails setting aside 0.5% of this sum into a designated fund, which is utilised for financing training and development initiatives within your business, including the hiring and training of apprentices.
Crucially, it’s worth noting that failing to utilise these funds within 24 months results in their forfeiture. Astonishingly, thousands of businesses forfeit these funds every year.
But wait, there’s more!
Most apprentices that are enrolled on our programmes will automatically be enrolled on a level 3 or 4 CIM free of charge! This means that not only will your learners receive top-notch training and support from us, but they will also have access to valuable CIM materials and will be able to bring all of this back into your organisation. This is programme-specific, so make sure to find out which courses offer this.
