WE ARE HERE FOR YOU
Weston College have over 2,000 apprentices with success rates above national average, and we’ve been recognised as the best apprenticeship training provider for the past two years. We even offer degree level apprenticeships so learners can earn a wage with our brilliant employers, learn alongside their job, and study a degree level qualification. Apprenticeships are proven to be successful and we have thriving programmes across the region. We have over 50 subjects covering many industries and recognising that every learner is unique, we have various course start dates and levels to suit everyone.
From August 2020 to January 2021, a brand new bonus opportunity is available for employers to recruit or upskill apprentices over the next 6 months, this is in addition to the current incentives already in place.
- If you recruit an apprentice aged 16-24 you will receive a £2,000 incentive payment
- If you recruit an apprentice aged 25+ the incentive payment is £1,500.
These incentive payments are in addition to the existing £1,000 incentives for 16-18, or up to 24 years if the apprentice has an EHCP or is a Care Leaver. Therefore, for a 16-18 £3,000 per apprentice, combine with a Traineeship and your funding could be £4,000 – call us now to take advantage?
Also, don’t forget that you can invest in your current staff with a bespoke apprenticeship programme. We’ll pay for training costs through your apprenticeship levy or if you are a small or medium size business, we’ll access government funding to cover 95% of our training costs. Detailed guidance regarding apprenticeships is here.
We are apprenticeship experts and we’ll support you at every stage.
