How much does this Apprenticeship cost the employer?
So, how does the funding work?
Businesses with more than £3 million annual wage bill already contribute 0.5% of that bill into The Apprenticeship Levy.
When you recruit Apprentices – you can draw that money back, to pay for their training and assessment. You don’t need to take any action – We confirm Levy eligibility for you.
After two years, your unclaimed payments go into the ‘national pot’. If you don’t claim the money yourself, you’re paying for someone else to employ Apprentices.
No problem. You can still claim 95% funding. You contribute 5% towards the cost of training and assessing your Apprentice. The government will pay the rest (95%) up to the funding band maximum.
You need to:
- agree a payment schedule with us
- pay us directly for the training
At the end of that, you get an experienced and trained Operator.
The Apprentice will work at their employers’ site and at our state-of-the-art facility, the NCPM.
The Apprenticeship standard requires 20% of the learning to be ‘off-the-job training’ – this can be delivered in one of three ways …
Learning takes place in the classroom and on the ground in our training facility, the NCPM.
Once they are versed in the basics, your candidates will return to you and begin the next stage of their training.
To reduce time spent offsite, we have developed our online learning and support platforms: Virtual Reynolds & CALMcloud.
