You want a quality workforce, and you can’t get that just through using the Levy.
An Apprenticeship is a foundation. Build on that as part of a wider talent development plan that further develops knowledge, skills and behaviours. A levy-based programme can deliver the types of skills and capabilities your organisation needs in the future to keep your key talent engaged and progressing further, faster.
You’ve got the flexibility as an employer, using the Levy, to add in what’s needed to help your organisation flourish. Add value. Go the extra mile. Take it further to get from sausage-factory ‘do-ers’ to ethical, innovators, disruptors – future leaders.
Mixing traditional methods with experiential learning will deliver better outcomes.
Be an enlightened employer. Don’t forget that support and mentoring are vital to achieving results – the best organisations enable people. They give them opportunities to develop the skills required… and then they let them flourish.
Look for suppliers who can deliver this wider remit effectively. Only by focusing on your values, identifying and fast-tracking leaders, using out-reach to attract new apprentices and creating ambassadors for your business are you genuinely investing in the future.
