Skill-shortage vacancies presented a growing challenge for employers in filling their vacancies, according to NSAR’s new report, due out in June: “The changing nature of Skills”. If you cannot recruit then, you must train the future workforce, and if you are a large employer, you will be paying the Levy.
We believe that it is important that organisations align apprenticeships to their business needs in order that they benefit from a return of their investment in training.
Setting up and implementing an apprenticeship scheme to recover your apprenticeship levy is complex, time-consuming and requires expert knowledge. Once your scheme is in place it will need careful and detailed management.
Our online Apprenticeship Levy planner helps an employer to easily and quickly model the apprenticeship programmes that best fit its needs and immediately see how much of its levy contribution has been recovered.
Rather than just focusing on a one-year period, with our planner, we will work with an employer to produce a strategic apprenticeship resource plan that covers a period of multiple years, such as, a rail franchising period. The easy to use calculator enables an employer to quickly and easily see how to optimise its levy contribution, determine the right mix between new entrants and up-skilling to achieve apprenticeship numbers and ensure it is developing and investing in the skills it needs for the future.
