In 2017, the government created an Apprenticeship Service (AS) for levy-paying customers. The good news for SMEs is the AS, and its benefits are now available to every apprenticeship employer in England.
The introduction of AS to all apprenticeship employers in England will be welcome news for smaller organisations. Businesses that have struggled to source suitable apprenticeship providers will now have non-levy funding to deliver the training they need.
If you are an employer, large or small, you will need to set up an account with the AS to view all the apprenticeship standards ready for delivery. You can look at training providers who can deliver apprenticeship training and access any available funding.
If you are interested in employing an apprentice for your business or looking for an apprenticeship for yourself, feel free to give us a call on 0121 236 2634, where you can speak directly to a qualified member of staff.
