Gain a nationally recognised qualification with funding from the Apprenticeship Levy (UK only)

Already employed and ready to up-skill?

Yes, you can begin an apprenticeship…

In April 2017 the Apprenticeship Levy was introduced in the UK. This means employers of a certain size (over £3m annual payroll bill) must pay the Apprenticeship Levy and spend the funds on Apprenticeship training or face losing it. 

Work for a smaller company?

If your employer doesn’t pay the Apprenticeship Levy you will still receive 95% funding from the government. Our partnered training providers can arrange this for you and access funding immediately.
