If you are looking to harness the talent of young people when running your business, we can point you in the right direction. Your business may wish to employ apprentices to work alongside your experienced staff and gain vital on-the- job skills whilst completing a programme of work-based training.
Speak to us today about finding an apprentice for your business.
Apprentices will usually work at least 30 hours per week and will need to be paid the National Minimum Wage rate for an apprentice of their age. Learning both on the job and via external training through a local college or training provider, apprentices will typically complete their work- based qualification within one to four years.
There are over 200 different types of Apprenticeships available at Intermediate, Advanced and Higher Apprenticeship levels. Anyone over the age of 16, living in England and not currently in full- time education can apply for an apprenticeship and schemes can be used to train new or existing employees.
Worcestershire Apprenticeship Hub provides services for young people, parents and employers to encourage the growth of apprenticeship opportunities and increase the number of young people becoming apprentices in Worcestershire.
Looking for an Apprenticeship? Wanting independent, expert advice? Look no further, the Worcestershire Apprenticeship team is here to help and advise you.
GOV.UK APPRENTICESHIPS SCHEME
Apprenticeships help you to grow your own talent, reduce staff turnover and give your business the skills it needs to succeed. Find out how apprenticeships can work for your business on the GOV.UK Apprenticeships website.
A new Apprenticeship levy will be introduced from April 2017, to increase the number and quality of apprenticeships. The levy will affect all UK employers with an annual pay bill of £3 million or more.
Each employer will receive an allowance of £15,000 to offset against their levy payment. Not sure if this will affect you? Follow the link below for more useful resources on the Apprenticeship Levy, or call us today on 01905 677 888 for more information.
