Apprenticeships are now available to support staff of all ages in over 1500 job roles covering more than 170 industries.

Government reforms will give employers more control over designing, choosing and paying for apprenticeship training. The new funding policy supports the changes to the way apprenticeships in England are paid for, underpinned by the apprenticeship levy. The levy will be paid by employers with a pay bill of over £3 million from April 2017 and will allow the Government to double investment in apprenticeships by 2020 – from 2010 levels – to £2.5bn.
For further information and support in taking your first steps and discussing apprenticeships for your business please come along to this event sponsored by Weymouth College.
The event will include presentations from Rod Davis, MD of the Dorset and Somerset Training Provider Network and Andrew Johnson, Head of Apprenticeships at Weymouth College.
