The myths, reality and opportunities of Apprenticeships - Exeter
Posted on: July 19th 2019

Apprenticeships – or how you can increase your L&D budget by 1000% without costing you a penny.

The Government has a goal to create 600,000 new apprenticeships each year. To fund it, they created the levy, yet in the first year of operation, only 10% of the levy collected has been spent. 40% of employers see the levy as a tax and 17% of leaders think they will recoup no business benefit.

What a waste.

From May 2019, unspent levy payments will be lost. Forever. Apprenticeships give business an opportunity to review the skills needed in your business and match an apprenticeship programme to meet the skills you required.

And it is very cost effective - if you are a levy-payer then you have already spent the money, if you spend all your levy pot or are not a levy payer then you only pay 10% of the cost.

Apprenticeships drive engagement, motivation and retention of staff, so why wouldn’t you use it?

Come and learn about the myths, realities and opportunities apprenticeships offer and how, by tailoring them to you and your situation they can help YOUR business.

This insightful seminar is led by Russell Beck, Impellam Group's Head of Consulting.
