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 31st January

The government is offering payment incentives to employers hiring apprentices between the 1st August 2020 and 31st March 2021 (inclusive). Employers could receive £1,500 per apprentice aged 25 or over, or £2,000 for apprentices aged 16-24.

Our Programmes

As an approved apprenticeship provider, all programmes can be funded through the Apprenticeship Levy or the government's co-investment scheme.
