What has your business done to access the Apprenticeship Levy to fund the development of current and future leaders?

Across England, 1000’s of businesses are liable to pay the Apprenticeship Levy. You may well be one of them. If you are, what are you doing to access and use it?

Many organisations with a significant workforce based in England tell us they are not only concerned about creating their own apprenticeship strategy; they also describe the difficulty of finding suitable providers to design and deliver accredited leadership development programmes which meet the scheme’s criteria.

This provides comprehensive guidance including who qualifies to be an apprentice and how to access the Levy Fund. It outlines the benefits for employers and their apprentices.

Our experience can help you get the best value from your spend on developing leaders and leadership under the scheme, ensuring your chosen development programmes are fully aligned to your organisational goals and drive the results and success you rightly expect.  Want to get in touch now?

Honda (UK), Paul Taylor, Training Operations Manager

“I have participated in many leadership programmes or courses within my 32 year career, without doubt the programme Blue Water have created for Honda is the best of those. It’s about the way leadership ideas are changed into real workplace behaviour, it really makes a difference.”
