How much does recruiting an apprentice cost?

The main cost for an employer is paying the apprentice’s wage. This is currently set at a minimum of £3.70 per hour, but in order to make your apprentice feel valued, we strongly recommend that you pay upwards of £4.50 per hour.

By taking on an apprentice, you are not only supporting a young person into employment, but you are also taking advantage of a funded and accredited training programme. Depending on the size of your business, government funding will cover between 90% and 100% of all training costs. If you are levy payer, you can use your available funds to recruit new apprentices.

Our bespoke recruitment process is completely free, with a focus on finding the right people for the right roles.

What are the benefits of online training?

Online Live has been designed with real learners in mind. Our unique training delivery method blends lectures, hands-on practice, and instructor interaction to create the most stimulating and successful learning environment possible.

From an employer’s point of view, one of the many benefits of Online Live is saving on travel and accommodation costs, as there is no need for learners to travel to college.

Apprentices can log on and learn wherever they have internet access, whether they choose to do their training in the workplace or in the comfort of their own home.

Compared with the day release model that many apprenticeships follow, the nature of our training means that our modules are delivered in week long blocks, every 5-7 weeks. Our course schedules are flexible, in order to fit the needs of our employers and apprentices.
