SEK Training has helped various private, public and VCSE sector organisations recruit, educate and train individuals on Business Apprenticeships in Kent. As an Approved Centre for City and Guilds, we offer the new apprenticeship standard: Level 3 Business Administrator Apprenticeship for levy and non-levy employers.
Unlike many other training providers in Kent, we believe in tailored one-to-one support from start to finish. We consult and advise you on your best options, you’re regularly updated on your apprentices’ progress, and they receive support on a monthly basis at their location of work, which means no day releases impacting on costs and productivity.
We have had excellent apprenticeship training from Social Enterprise Kent, their approach to working with us to achieve our mutual goal has been fantastic and we highly recommend them.
Business Apprenticeships in Kent
The Level 3 Business Administrator Apprenticeship is ideal for individuals who support and engage with different departments throughout your organisation and interact with customers.
Since May 2017, the way apprenticeships are funded changed; the change intends to encourage large employers to recruit more apprentices and use their levy to develop their existing staff. It also enables small and medium employers to recruit apprentices and train their existing staff for a fraction of the cost. This is categorised as levy employers and non-levy employers, which one are you?
Levy employers have an annual pay bill of £3 million or more or are connected to other companies or charities for Employment Allowance, which in total have an annual pay bill of £3 million or more.
Non-levy employers don't have a pay bill of £3 million or more. These employers share the costs of apprenticeships with the government - which is called "co-investment". Employers co-invest 10% and the government pays 90% of the costs of an apprenticeship.
As part of our exceptional service to you, SEK Training support you in finding and recruiting an apprentice. One of the ways we help is leveraging Find an Apprenticeship and Apprentice Kent. Seeking apprentices typically use these sites to find their dream apprenticeship. We can promote your site on these popular sites for free of charge until you recruit an apprentice.
Upskill Existing Members of Staff
The perception of apprenticeships is changing; staff want to be trained and they don't necessarily mind how their employer does it. You don't need to change their job title or change how much you pay them, you just effectively putting them through a training programme.
