Upskill Your Employees

All UK employers can upskill their workforce using Apprenticeship Funds

Eligibility criteria for employees to do an Apprenticeship:

  • The employee must be aged 16 or above (there is no upper age limit)
  • The employee can work full or part time hours
  • The employee works for a company in England
  • The employee spends > 50% of their time working in England (remote and hybrid workers included)
  • The employee has some gaps in their knowledge and skill that relates to their occupational role
  • The employee has the right to work in England
  • The employee has spent the last 3 years living in England

Apprenticeships play a crucial role in developing the UK workforce, by helping organisations to increase employee performance and business productivity. The Apprenticeship Reforms introduced in 2017 have radically changed how apprenticeships are designed, delivered, who is eligible and how they are funded.

There are now over 700 apprenticeship programmes available to employees, ranging from Level 2 to level 7.

Many of the new apprenticeships include valuable professional qualifications for example: CIPS, AAT, BCS, PropertyMark, or TPI, making them a very attractive and cost-effective way to attract, retain and develop the workforce.

You can see the most popular Top 100 UK apprenticeships here.

By filling gaps in occupational knowledge and skill, employees will increase their confidence, competence and career capability, and organisations benefit, by increasing their productivity.

The Apprentice Academy have a dedicated team focused on helping organisations to understand and make the best use of the apprenticeship funding available to them. For information on programmes due to start over the next couple of months please visit our timetables page.
