What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a suite of qualifications which provides individuals with knowledge and skills required to competently undertake and complete a role, whilst they are working within it. Courses are tailored to suit the employer and individual, with many choices across multiple standards of frameworks.

What will it cost?
In most cases, it won’t cost you a penny! If you pay into the Apprenticeship Levy, you can access these funds to cover all recruitment, training and assessment costs and appoint experts like Blue Arrow to execute the programme on your behalf.
If you don’t pay the Levy, you’ll only pay 10% of these associated costs. If you’ve spent all of your Levy funds, the government will pay 90% of the additional cost of training any additional apprentices.
