Camden Apprenticeships

Employers

Camden Apprenticeships offer support to employers in and around Camden to set up apprenticeship schemes and recruit the best people for their business.

With an apprenticeship you can enhance your workforce. 89% of employers say that the enthusiasm of their apprentices makes their business more productive, and that higher and degree level apprenticeships allow apprentices to access technical skills that are vital to performance and business growth.

An apprenticeship also offers the opportunity to bring a fresh perspective to your business, attracting new talent and offering progression and development to a skilled and qualified workforce. They also help lower recruitment costs.

Legislation in 2017

This year the government are introducing two  legislative changes to encourage the uptake of apprenticeships and vocational learning, these are:

  • The Enterprise Act, which requires public sector workplaces to increase their intake of apprentices to make up 2.3% of their overall workforce
  • The Apprenticeship Levy which requires all businesses with a pay bill over £3million to pay a percentage of their earnings back to central government for training. You can earn some of this money back in the form of apprentice training contracts.  

 

We are very keen to hear from employers who would like to make the most of this untapped talent! For more information, please contact Camden apprenticeships
