Business Skills Apprenticeships How will they benefit my business?
How will an apprenticeship benefit my business? Apprenticeships can:
Help you to recruit new talent or develop the talent of your current staff
Ensure your employees have a good balance between practical
skills and qualifications
Allow you the flexibility to train your staff in a way that best suits
your business needs.
Offer your business staff who are motivated, staff who are eager
to learn and staff who will be loyal to the company that has invested in them
What types of apprenticeships do Kingston Maurward College offer? The Business Skills Apprenticeships currently consist of:
Business and Administration Apprenticeship
IT Advanced Apprenticeship
Can Kingston Maurward College be flexible with the delivery of the apprenticeship program? Yes! Before you sign up an apprentice, we can arrange a meeting to discuss what your business needs are, and how we can accommodate them. This could include:
More visits to the workplace (particularly if your apprentice is learning over the summer period when college attendance is not required).
Alternating college attendance between more than one apprentice (though college attendance is encouraged as often as possible).
Sharing an apprentice with another company
Do I have to pay for the training? Maybe.
If your apprentice is between 16-18 their training will be fully funded by the government.
If you apprentice is 19 or over, then a contribution is required.
As an employer you will:
Give your apprentice a contract of employment
Pay them a minimum of £95 per week
Give your apprentice a full induction into their role and provide
ongoing “on the job training”
Allow Kingston Maurward College reasonable access to
apprentices and supervisors for the purposes of reviewing progress and recording achievements
Cooperate with Kingston Maurward College by ensuring your
apprentice attends college (when required). How does an apprenticeship work?
