HR Apprenticeship

Who is an Apprenticeship for?

If your organisation has a wage bill of over £3 million a year, you will pay into the apprenticeship levy. Your company then has 24 months to invest this money or lose it. Our expert team will support you to make effective use of the opportunity to:

  • Enhance the skills of your existing staff
  • Employ new talent
  • Maximise your return on investment

If your company doesn’t pay into the apprenticeship levy, the government will still fund 95% of the cost of the apprenticeship.
