About our programmes

There is little or no cost to your organisation thanks to the new Apprenticeship Levy, which can be used for any accredited Apprenticeship scheme. It does not need to be just for young people – and existing staff can enrol on these programmes too.

If your organisation has a payroll of £3 million a year or more, your organisation will be paying 0.5% of this into the Apprenticeship Levy (from April 2017). Your organisation can then spend that fund on accredited Apprenticeship schemes like this one.

If your organisation has a payroll of less than £3 million a year, 90% of the programme will be funded through the Skills Funding Agency.

We can talk you through how it works and how to apply for the funding on enrolment.

Each programme is assessed through an on-going portfolio of work with an assessment at the end (carried out by an independent examiner). The final assessments may include an online exam, a presentation and an interview at the end of the year.
