Apprenticeship Services: Medway Council

NSAR supports businesses with apprenticeship development, support, evaluation and levy optimisation. We partnered with Medway Council to provide this support to business in Medway, Kent.



Medway Council is the local authority of Medway in Kent, England.


NSAR partnered with Medway Council to provide an apprenticeship support service to Medway businesses that were having difficulties navigating the complexities of apprenticeship provision.

The aim of the service was to provide support to Medway businesses to help them understand apprenticeship frameworks and standards, optimise available levies and ser apprenticeships.

Three clear objectives were defined:

  • Engaging with Medway businesses that could offer apprenticeships.
  • Supporting Medway employers to identify posts that could be filled by Medway residents.
  • Supporting Medway businesses to engage with the Levy planner to enter their own data.

NSAR also provided resources or monthly drop-sessions for local businesses to touch base and seek advice.


NSAR has contracted almost 600 businesses across the area, with approximately 130 meaningful engagements, for this, 44 organisations demonstrated a commitment to exploring apprentice opportunities further (34%). Eight organisations have taken on 20 apprentices between them. All apprentices are residents of the Medway area.
