Apprenticeships Overview

What is the levy all about?

  • Employers with a paybill of over £3m need to pay 0.5% of this to the government as a Management Apprenticeships levy.
  • However, they can then use this money to effectively secure a leadership and management programme for their people.
  • If they do not use their levy within 24 months, they lose it.
  • Organisations who do not pay the levy (SMEs), only pay 5% of the cost with the government paying the rest (95%).
  • We find that a number of organisations are replacing their existing leadership, management and talent programmes with levy funded programmes.

Who can be an apprentice?

  • Leadership and management apprenticeships are for everyone in your organisation (both existing and new employees), and we have programmes that target aspiring managers, middle managers and senior leaders (including the CEO).
  • Our programmes typically last for 2 years, and require about 6 hours per week to focus on improving their organisation and developing leadership and management skills.
  • At the end of our programmes, participants can receive a Certificate from the CMI.

What are the benefits?

  • Management and leadership apprenticeships are an essential tool for creating an effective workforce by unlocking the potential of the management team.
  • Our management apprenticeships seek to make your organisation more productive, and the below research shows the impact this can have.
  • Get in touch to find out how we can design and deliver a bespoke leadership and management programme – using your levy – for your organisation.
