Sue Robb of 4Children talks to Julie Laughton and Alison Britton from the Department for Education about the role of childminders in delivering the 30 hours free entitlement.
There has never been a better time to employ apprentices. If you are a Levy payer (with a wage bill of over £3m a year), you can invest your payments to fund training and assessment of apprentices.
If the costs are greater than the amount of Levy paid, 90% of the extra costs will be met by government co-funding.
Coventry University: The Nationwide Apprenticeship University works with you to design tailor-made apprenticeships that meet your individual business needs. We can offer any of our existing Higher and Degree qualifications as apprenticeships, providing there is an approved apprenticeship Standard for that subject. Qualifications range from Level 4 (Foundation) to Level 7 (Master’s).
Subjects include: Management & Leadership, Accounting, Project Management, Digital & Technology Solutions, Cyber Security, Engineering & Manufacturing, Construction, Healthcare, Law and more, with many more to come as Standards are approved.
Our Degree and Higher Apprenticeships can start at any time; they are not tied to university terms. Learning is by a blend of face-to-face, online, distance and self-directed study, and can be delivered at one of our campuses or in your workplace.
