Apprenticeships are an important part of the Government’s Education and Skills strategy and public money is available to support the costs of recruiting and training Apprentices. The level of contribution available is linked to Government priorities. For example, the level of funding available to support 16-18 year olds is greater than that for older Apprentices.
In most cases the contribution goes directly to the training provider. A few, very large employers have their own Apprenticeship delivery contract and are able to receive the contribution directly. EQL Solutions have been awarded our own allocation of funding by the SFA in order to support apprentices working with our employer partners and have also been chosen by several large organisations to deliver contracts on their behalf after they have been awarded the funding directly.
All Apprenticeships are competence based, linked to an individual’s ability to complete tasks connected with their role. To find out more, call us on 01928 703 970, email us at email@example.com
