Employ an apprentice
Building on the success of the Higher Apprenticeship in Project Management, a Trailblazer employer group within the project profession has developed a new Associate Project Manager Apprenticeship Standard at level 4 to address skill demands.
APM has been a partner in this development, which has been led by Sellafield Ltd and included major corporate employers. With many young people facing different options to advance their skills due to increases in university tuition fees and with new funding to encourage apprenticeships, including the apprenticeship levy, there has never been a better time to take on an apprentice.
Why offer an apprenticeship?
The Associate Project Manager Apprenticeship at level 4 will assist you or your business clients in developing a skilled and competent project management workforce.
There is no upper age limit for apprenticeships, so the scheme can be used to develop new or existing staff.
There are numerous benefits that apprentices can bring to your business. These include increased productivity, improved competitiveness, filling skills gaps, and developing a committed and competent workforce.
Successful project delivery is at the heart of all businesses and organisations. Having the right people with the right skills helps to achieve this.
The government apprenticeship levy
Plan for your future workforce by understanding the apprenticeship levy, to come into force on 6 April 2017.
The Levy is set at 0.5% and will need to be paid by all businesses with a payroll over £3 million.
Businesses can use the levy funds in their apprenticeships service account to train new and existing employees.
