Businesses with an annual pay bill of £3 million or more pay the Apprenticeship Levy. But how do you ensure you can recoup all the money you pay each year into the Apprenticeship Levy? Companies paying the Apprenticeship Levy want to know the best ways to use the money in their digital accounts.
An Apprenticeship Levy Consultation Service aims to give you the best, most comprehensive advice on how to use your apprenticeship levy funds. The service we offer enables you to discuss any concerns or queries regarding apprenticeships and your options when spending the levy.
We will then endeavour to deliver the best solution to your query and work closely with you in the planning and implementation of an apprenticeship scheme.
If you are required to pay into the apprenticeship levy but do not already have a scheme or plan in place, it is always useful to seek advice from an expert. Arch Apprentices were preparing for the introduction of the levy well before April 2017, so when it arrived we were ready for any questions that flew our way.
We have used that experience and knowledge to aid many companies in how to use their apprenticeship levy, by identifying current skill gaps, areas in which they could upskill existing staff and which entry-level roles would best benefit from being apprenticeships.
This can be a long tricky process for any HR team, but with the support of our Apprenticeship Levy Consultation Service, you’ll find the solution quicker than you think. Plus we’ll be with you every step of the way, from identifying solutions to implementation, all the way up until your apprentices complete their qualification.
You can start the process of accessing our services by asking our advisors any questions you have about the process of taking on new apprentices. This is our chance to reassure you about our services and outline what you can expect from us.
A consultation gives us the chance to discuss all your options with you. This is essentially an opportunity to find out how your business is most likely to benefit from the digital apprenticeship service. Feel free to ask any questions you have about our services. After your consultation, we will have enough information to create a plan that is best for you.
Many companies don’t yet have any apprentices. In order to recover your Levy funds, you may need to start training many apprentices at once. All this takes time and effort to arrange. The process can be quite overwhelming if you haven’t taken on apprentices before. Apprenticeship Levy consultation services can take the headache out of making all the arrangements by doing all this for you. We will create a plan, tailored to your specific needs. This ensures your business gets the most out of the new system.
Only approved training and assessment can be paid for with the funds in your digital account. By choosing our Apprenticeship Levy services, you can rely on us to work with only the best training and assessment providers. This way, you recoup 100% of the funds in your digital account.
Managing your apprenticeships is going to take time. There are going to be arrangements to make in the following areas:
• Setting up your digital account
• Forecasting payments
• Training and assessment
• Sourcing new apprentices
• Providing apprentices with the support they need to excel
We help you every step of the way to make things easy. This way, you can leave the hard work to us and continue to do what you do best. Contact us now.
