The amount that non-levy paying employers have to pay towards apprenticeship training has been cut from 10% to 5% from 1st April 2019.

This means that when a business now recruits an apprentice, the government will cover 95% of the training costs. This fee also applies to upskilling and progression of existing employees.

Our health and social care, childcare, retail, customer service, business and management apprenticeships offer a flexible and cost effective way for employers to build the skills base they really need.

Employers can benefit in many other ways by recruiting an apprentice with GP Strategies including:

  • A free dedicated recruitment service to find you the right fit for your business.
  • Free DBS checks, first aid and safeguarding training for candidates working in social care and childcare.
  • A £1000 incentive for recruiting a 16-18 year old apprentice or 19-24 year old apprentice with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan.
  • Flexible and innovative training methods geared to different learning styles and to meet the demands of businesses.
  • A dedicated account manager and ongoing support from skills coaches with specific sector expertise.
  • Access to a wide range of valuable courses to further develop the skills of employees.
  • A number of complementary value-added services.
