We provide tailored workforce development solutions to support your organisation. We train both your new and existing employees via Apprenticeships to help further develop their career and motivation, whilst producing a boost to your productivity through the creation of a skilled and competent workforce.

How do they work?

With an Apprenticeship your employee learns as they work; our training can be delivered in-house or at one of your sites. They will also receive help with Maths and English (as well as ICT, if applicable) to help with both work and daily life.


How do I know if I have the right training solution for my organisation?

ITS Training and Apprenticeships can meet with you to discuss your individual business needs and create a bespoke/tailored training package. Our Training Managers will also maintain regular contact with you to support the delivery of training and ensure that your workforce is being developed effectively.


Who are they for?

Organisations looking to create a skilled and competent workforce through bespoke training, You the employer can offer apprenticeships to new entrants (with help from our excellent candidate recruitment process) or use them to grow talent from among current employees.


What are the benefits of hiring apprentices?

Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way for your business to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. Employers who have an established apprenticeship programme reported that productivity in their workplace had improved by 76% whilst 75% reported that apprenticeships improved the quality of their product or service. Other benefits include: – increasing employee satisfaction – reducing staff turnover – reducing recruitment costs


What are my responsibilities as an employer?

There must be a genuine job available with a contract of employment long enough for an apprentice to complete their apprenticeship. You must pay an apprentice’s wages and the role must help them gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to achieve the apprenticeship with support from you.


Am I eligible for any funding?

ITS Training and Apprenticeships can meet with you to discuss your Apprenticeship funding options.


How did the Government reforms affect apprenticeships?

As part of the reforms apprenticeships are more rigorous, better structured, independently assessed and more clearly aligned to the needs of employers. The reforms address the skills shortages reported by many industries and help keep the UK internationally competitive. Most importantly, apprenticeships offer high quality opportunities for people to develop their talents and for you the employer to develop your workforce.


The Apprenticeship Levy:

Employers operating in the UK with an annual PAYE bill of £3million or more must pay the Apprenticeship levy – a deduction of 0.5% for everything over this figure (less £15k). Government will top up an employer’s levy training allowance by an additional 10%, to be spent on Apprenticeship training within a 2 year period.


What about non-levy-paying employers?

Employers with a PAYE bill of less than £3 million a year will not need to pay the levy. At least 95% of non-levy-paying employers’ apprenticeship training and assessment costs in England will be paid for by the government. The government will ask these employers to make a 5% cash contribution to the cost, paid directly to the provider, and the government covers the rest (up to the maximum agreed funding band).


How do Apprenticeship Levy Transfers work?

Transfers are being introduced to give levy-paying employers more flexibility in how they spend their apprenticeship service funds. They can now be used to fund apprenticeships in another organisation. Funds will be transferred monthly for the duration of the apprenticeship. This means that levy-paying employers can work with another employer to help them take on apprentices, increasing the skills base in their supply chain, sector or local area.
