The Apprenticeship Levy

What is your strategy for the Apprenticeship Levy and training your workforce?

How are you going to reduce the Levy's real cost and ensure World Class Talent Development ?

The Apprenticeship Levy gives you the chance for talent development, tailored to your organisation’s needs. It is imperative to act now to use the Apprenticeship Levy opportunity to transform how you recruit and 'upskill' your new and existing workforce, especially in the travel & tourism industry.

  • Provide solutions for your organisation to achieve the aim of a 'first class talent development' while reducing the real cash costs of the Levy

  • Recruit, Manage and Monitor your Apprenticeship Providers
