Apprenticeship policy

Policy overview

This policy describes our approach to apprenticeships. We, along with community and voluntary controlled schools, are an apprenticeship levy-paying organisation. We support apprentices with their development for job roles.  

Employing apprentices helps to: 

  • maximise levy funds 
  • develop a committed and competent workforce 
  • fill skills gaps 
  • meet resource needs 
  • develop employees to meet future requirements of the workplace 

All employees are eligible to consider an apprenticeship training programme. This can be beneficial for: 

  • new recruits 
  • existing employees who want to develop within their current role 
  • existing employees interested in a change in career 

We encourage employees with protected characteristics to enter apprenticeships.
