Brathay utilised our Levy funding to devise and deliver a high quality, dynamic apprenticeship programme for our management trainees, using a mix of theoretical and practical learning, backed up by excellent one-to-one mentoring.
I believe it’s no coincidence that they all passed with distinction.

“Ticked the box, got the certificate – Apprenticeship done, right?”
Sure. You’ve used the Levy to get yourself a qualified, certified, employee. Lovely.
Is that what you really need, though? What’s a qualification, if your employee isn’t capable of effectively using their new skills to improve your business? A certificate’s nice, but it’s only part of what’s required to move your organisation forward.
Blending that solid grounding of knowledge, skill and behaviours with a programme that takes your apprentice from good to great - further developing the critical skills and capabilities that turns them into an ideas-rich, collaborative, potential leader - that’s where your real gains come from.
You’ll need to invest a bit more to get that, but wow – it’s worth it.
