Apprenticeships are a great way to develop your workforce. Whether you want to recruit a new apprentice or upskill your existing staff an apprenticeship can help meet the needs of your business. As apprenticeships range from Level 1 – Level 6, there’s a training option for every part of your team.
There are lots of great reasons why an apprenticeship programme could be the right solution for your organisation, including:
We offer a range of programmes for our apprenticeships including:
Apprenticeships are funded by Levy payments. This is a tax that all businesses with a pay bill of over £3million pounds per year have had to pay since 2017. These employers pay 0.5% of their total annual pay bill through the PAYE system. If you are a non-levy paying business, the government will part fund your apprentice costs, and if you have less than 50 employees the apprenticeship for someone aged 16 – 18 years old is fully funded by the government.
“I contacted New College for our first apprentice and they helped me find a suitable candidate and managed the whole process, guiding me on what to do and when to do it. It has been a really great end-to-end and simple experience. The team are always at the end of the phone and happy to help navigate anything I need as a director to ensure that our placement is successful!”Marie Harte | Director at Harte Developments Ltd
“Apprentices are vital to our business, training someone for 4 years gives us the opportunity to get the right people for us, not only do they learn a trade and get a qualification but they learn our way of doing things and the importance of why we have such high expectations and the benefits to both us as a company and our customers.
94% of the apprentices we take have remained in our employment after qualifying and the majority of these now have their own apprentices so are able to impart not only their plumbing knowledge but an understanding of completing an apprenticeship and how it works.”Steph Forster | Renelec
