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 co-investment funding or a small business that could benefit from 100% funding.
Investing in staff training can lead to improved motivation, productivity and retention rates.
“The course our Senior Management Team undertook with iSales did so much more than relay current best practice and theories. The practical way the learning was delivered, along with the mentoring, ensured everyone applied the learning on a day to day basis going forward. The biggest areas of improvement we experienced would be in communication and collaboration, not just within the Senior Management Team but across the firm. We have also greatly improved our knowledge and processes in Change Management and HR which has led to a greater sense of fairness and consistency across the entire business”. Ian Meaburn, Director at Myers Clark
