Apprenticeships and Long-Term Development Programmes
Invest in your organisation at little or no extra cost through our apprenticeship schemes.
These schemes are all open to your existing staff of any age, or we can help you to recruit and support a new member of the team. All face-to-face sessions are now temporarily taking place remotely via Zoom.
Additional financial incentives until 30th September
The government is offering payment incentives to employers hiring apprentices — any employers who hire a new apprentice between April 1, 2021 and September 30, 2021 will receive £3,000 per new hire, regardless of the apprentice’s age.
As an approved apprenticeship provider, all programmes can be funded through the Apprenticeship Levy or the government's co-investment scheme.
For Web Developers
Bolster your team by taking on one of our web development apprentices. Tell us what sort of people you are looking for and we will shortlist the applications and arrange the interviews for you. Looking to upskill your current staff? We can help with that too.
For First-Time Managers
Invest in your first-time managers, team leaders and supervisors with our Level 3 management programme.
For Experienced Managers
Enable your experienced managers and department leaders to create empowered, high-performing teams with our Level 5 programme.
For Senior Leaders
This 26-month Level 7 programme is for Senior Leaders who want a cultural transformation of their workplace. To apply, you must be ready to apply the concepts you learn in your organisation, and be ready to create a workplace based on trust and freedom for your people.
