Professional apprenticeships for your organisation


Mindful Education Logo

Apprenticeships offer an affordable way to train new team members and upskill existing staff. Utilising apprenticeships as part of your talent strategy can help with succession planning, filling skills gaps and expanding your business. Boost your team’s skills, knowledge, performance and job satisfaction, so that your key people stay with you for longer.

Flexible blended learning
We work in partnership with Mindful Education, an ed-tech company that specialises in creating blended learning courses and apprenticeships for professional qualifications. Through the effective use of technology, Mindful Education delivers flexible, on-demand learning that is intuitive and engaging, enabling apprentices to fit their study around their work.


Online and On Campus

Apprentices study online lessons during allotted time at work, and also attend regular sessions with a college tutor, either in-person or virtually. This flexible approach to apprenticeship training empowers learners, minimises disruption to employers, and improves learner retention and achievement.

Online studies can be accessed on demand, from any device, so apprentices can log on to study during quiet periods at work. Lessons are video-based, easy to navigate and focused on helping learners to achieve their qualifications. Meanwhile, unique background analytics enable employers to track learner activity and progress.

On campus, apprentices benefit from regular classes with an experienced college tutor, either in-person or virtually. And because the key points are learnt online, apprentices attend classroom sessions about half as often as with a more traditional apprenticeship.

Government funding
Employers with an annual wage bill of over Β£3 million are required to pay the apprenticeship levy at 0.5% each month. Your levy fund can then be accessed for training and assessment on approved apprenticeship schemes.

For SMEs and non-levy-paying employers, the government will fund 95% of the cost of training an apprentice. You can find more information on the Government Website.

 

Managing the off-the-job training requirement
All apprentices who are employed for over 30 hours per week must undertake a minimum average of six hours of training per week.

The Online and On Campus apprenticeship model provides greater flexibility and convenience as apprentices can log in to study during quiet periods at work. All activity is recorded and counts towards the off-the-job training requirement.
