The Apprenticeship Levy is now over 6 months old and at EEF we have been working with a number of our member companies, helping them understand the Levy guidance, register onto the Apprenticeships Service, and plan effectively to spend their Levy funds.
One such company that we have been working closely with is Liberata (a company within the OSi Group). Taking 12 of their management team and on-boarding them onto the Level 3 Management and Development Apprenticeship.
EEF has supported Liberata right through the process of their apprenticeship levy development – from discussing options within the apprenticeship route, recommending the best approach and training to suit their development needs and business aims, to spending their Levy funds, planning and delivering the Level 3 management apprenticeship through our specialist L&D team. It has been a great learning experience for both Liberata and EEF in understanding the requirements and maximising the benefits of the Apprenticeship Levy.
Jonathan Watts, HR Director of Liberata, says, “Liberata are delighted to be working with EEF on the development of their Management Apprenticeships Level 3 and 5. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to provide structured management development programmes to our employees, whilst utilising our apprenticeship levy funding. EEF has supported us throughout the process, giving guidance on managing our Apprenticeship Levy and setting up our digital apprenticeship account. We look forward to embedding the programmes into our organisation and supporting the development of our employees.”
