Apprenticeships - Employers

Are you interested in recruiting an apprentice or considering signing up an existing employee for an apprenticeship scheme?

Apprenticeships can deliver real benefits to businesses of all sizes across every sector.

Apprenticeships combine college based training with on-the-job training by the employer, which gives businesses the opportunity to shape the apprentices learning so that it is in-line with business practices and procedures.

Our apprenticeship programmes are designed in consultation with employers from within the construction industry, allowing us to teach relevant, up to date and industry standard courses.

Apprenticeship Costs

In April 2017 the government are introducing an apprenticeship levy which will affect the way that employers pay for apprenticeships.

If you are an employer with a wage bill over £3million you will be required to pay a levy of 0.5%. For employers with a wage bill of less than £3million, apprenticeships will be co-funded and you will have to contribute 10% to the cost.
