iSales Academy welcome Jordan Fry to the team

Jordan Fry joined iSales last week for a 6 month period on the Kickstart scheme to assist the team with marketing and administration in order to gain valuable skills and work experience. Young and ambitious, he’s looking to build a foundation upon which he can shine, while bringing skills and flexibility to the team – making them that much more efficient!

iSales are working in partnership with the Watford Chamber of Commerce and have developed an excellent training and support package to help people who are enrolling in the Kickstart scheme like Jordan, to learn core business skills and prepare them for when they inevitably enter the working world.

Talk to iSales Academy about the Kickstart scheme or Apprenticeships!

Hire an Apprentice!

£4,000 for apprentices aged 16-18      £3,000 for apprentices aged 19+

The government has provided outstanding support to businesses looking to hire in the next few months.

There has never been a better time to bring an apprentice into your business.

Apprentices grow with your company. They bring a dynamism and enthusiasm that is increasingly hard to find.

By hiring an Apprentice you also give back to the community: helping a local school leaver who is struggling to find work.

Talent is often hidden away where you least expect it. The unknown rookie can quickly become the star of the show.

If you want to access the finance mentioned at the start of this post, then hire an apprentice.

It really does benefit us all.

March 100 Mile Team Challenge Achieved :)

I am delighted that both Jane Palfreeman and I have successfully exceeded the 100 Mile Walking/Running March challenge, and so far have collectively raised £475 for PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide

iSales Academy are corporate fundraising for Papyrus this year. They are a UK-based charity that provides young people with the support they need – particularly those struggling with mental health.

With mostly pleasant weather during March and a few really hot sunny days, this 100 mile challenge was highly enjoyable!

Thank you to everyone that supported us, those that donated, and those that listened to us moaning about blisters!!

Apprenticeships a Priority in Spring Budget – New Incentives for Employers

The Chancellor, the Rt Hon Rishi Sunak MP, has rightly made #apprenticeships a priority in the 2021 Spring #Budget. His key announcements were:

1. Extending the #apprenticeship incentive from 1st April to 30th September 2021. This involves a payment increase, now rising to £3,000 (with this reaching £4,000 if the #apprentice is between 16 – 18 year old).

2. Introducing a £7 million fund from July 2021 to help English employers set up and expand portable apprenticeships.

3. An additional £126 million to create 40,000 more #Traineeships, funding high-quality #workplacements and #training for 16–24-year-olds in the 2021/22 academic year.

iSales Academy actively welcomes all of these initiatives. There has never been a better time for your company to hire an apprentice, and benefit from all the financial incentives that are now on offer.

Contact us if you want to benefit from the £4,000 on offer, and hire an apprentice at your business today.

iSales are sponsoring PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide.

On Monday 22nd February, iSales Academy delivered our first #mentalhealth first aid awareness training course to 23 people! We have been delighted with the response to this course.

Many volunteers have since come forward to help us plan new ways to raise money and support the charity iSales are sponsoring: PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide.

We are kicking off our #fundraising efforts with a 100-mile challenge in March. This will be regularly updated, so watch this space! And, of course, we welcome any support, involvement in activities and donations for this fantastic #charity.
