All UK employers can upskill their workforce using Apprenticeship Funds
Apprenticeships are now set to 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 radically changed the way apprenticeships are designed, delivered, who is eligible and how they are funded.
New Apprenticeship Criteria For Employees:
- Be aged 16 + (No upper age limit)
- Work 30 + hours per week
- Have gaps in their occupational knowledge and skill
- Work for a company in England
- Spend > 50% of their time working in England
- Have the right to work in England
There are now over 500 apprenticeship approved programmes available to employees, ranging from Level 2 to level 7.
One of the most popular apprenticeships in the UK is the Level 3 Team Leader / Supervisor Apprenticeship. The video below shows an Apprentice Academy learner who has completed this programme with us.
Many of the new apprenticeships include valuable professional qualifications for example: CIPS, AAT, APM, ARLA or ILM, making them a very attractive and cost-effective way to attract, retain and develop the workforce.

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