An apprenticeship programme is training that takes place in the workplace that leads to a recognised qualification from intermediate up to degree level.

Government is committed to creating 3 million quality apprenticeship starts in England over this parliament and aim to double the investment in Apprenticeships between 2017 and 2020 to £2.5bn.

There is funding available to help employers of all sizes to grow their skills through apprentice schemes whether they are apprentice Levy payers, eligible for 9:1 funding or a small business that could benefit from 100% funding.

Investing in staff training can lead to improved motivation, productivity and retention rates.
