Why not take on an apprentice?


As the government opens up more of the economy, businesses are considering taking up the new grants of up to £3,000 for employing an apprentice this autumn.




This comes in addition to a range of options for funding the learning aspects of apprenticeship programmes.


Viki Faulkner, Head of Apprenticeships at the University of Brighton, said: “There is still time for businesses to take advantage these generous funding packages for getting new apprentices started in the autumn.”


She said the University offers degree-level apprenticeships in business and management, the built environment, teaching and most aspects of healthcare, starting this autumn. Fees can be funded through the government’s Apprenticeship Levy, with options for organisations of all sizes.


“And we are launching new degree apprenticeship programmes in law and accounting, to complement our popular Senior Leader MBA and Data Analytics Masters Degree Apprenticeships which start in September. Established programmes include civil engineering, town planning, teaching, podiatry and social work.”
