Attracting new talent through apprenticeships

Did you know that both existing staff and new recruits can be enrolled onto an apprenticeship? With the help of an apprenticeship training provider like Intequal, you can launch an apprenticeship vacancy and hire an apprentice into your business, building a pipeline of engaged and upskilled talent.

Some training providers will charge a fee for apprentice recruitment, but others, like Intequal, will include the costs as part of the apprenticeship training. This means that other than the cost of the apprenticeship training, you won’t have any other financial investments when working with Intequal to hire and train an apprentice.

How apprenticeships are funded

Apprenticeships are regulated by Government agencies including the Education and Skills Funding Agency. How you fund an apprenticeship as an employer depends on the rules set out by these agencies. This is something that can seem complex, but we’re here to help make your solution simple.

If you’re an SME, you’ll only contribute 5% of the apprenticeship training costs, with the government funding 95%.

If you’re a large business with over £3m annual staff wage bill, you can use your apprenticeship levy to pay for training.
