Training and Development opportunities to upskill your workforce

There are funded training opportunities which can help you to attract new talent and upskill your existing workforce. Apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career, and businesses to develop a talented workforce that is equipped with future-ready skills.

Why choose an apprenticeship?

  • You can start an apprenticeship whatever stage you’re at in life; there’s no upper age limit. Whether you’re just starting out, want a change, or you’re looking to progress in your current industry, an apprenticeship could be for you. If you are over 16 and contracted to work a minimum of 30 hours per week, you will be eligible.
  • An apprenticeship gives your employees the opportunity to gain high quality training and hands-on experience in your chosen occupation, whilst earning a salary. New skills can lead to better jobs at every stage of life and with apprenticeships available from Level 2 up to Level 7, they are accessible to anyone within your business and are a great tool for engaging and retaining your workforce.
  • If you have recently recruited a new employee between 1st October and 31st January, why not consider an apprenticeship programme for them? Not only will it support with their induction and provide valuable additional training, but you can also apply for an employer incentive of up to £4,000. Your new start will need to be enrolled before 31st March to be eligible.
