Your questions answered:
So funding for Apprenticeships is changing?
Yes. If your payroll is over £3 million, from April 2017 your organisation is likely to be paying the Government’s new Apprenticeship Levy – which is 0.5% of your payroll. This means that effectively you will be investing in Apprenticeships up-front. That’s why it’s so important to make your investment effective.
How do we get the best return on our investment?
By working with HTP Apprenticeship College to deliver the very best Apprenticeship training available. HTP Apprenticeship College is the South’s leading work-based training provider, and as such we proudly work with hundreds of large and small businesses and other organisations across the region and across many vocational sectors.
Here are just a few:

Our Apprenticeship success rates are consistently well above the national averages. Our success rate for 2015/16 was over 81% compared to similar providers nationally of only 65%.
Our expertise is second to none
We’re known for delivering the highest standard of vocational training to our learners, and a simple, effective and valuable service to the employers with whom we work. We are fully accredited by the appropriate bodies and are rated Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ in every area of our business.
We help you with FREE recruitment
We offer a full recruitment service for you at no cost. We take your job description and advertise the Apprenticeship position for you using the National Apprenticeship website, job boards, Job Centre Plus as well as our own website and social media channels. We will examine the applications and help you shortlist candidates. If appropriate we will be part of your interview panel or assessment process.
We provide tailored, in-depth account management
As part of our partnership we provide a monthly ‘Key Account Tracker’ to inform HR and Training Managers of each apprentice’s progress. Line Managers and mentors are involved in the apprentice’s learning review and as a Levy payer, we will meet with you regularly to help ensure effective management of your Digital Account.
Our delivery is Ofsted ‘Outstanding’
Ofsted recognises our training provision as Outstanding. At our last main inspection we received Grade 1s across the board and we have since taken part in a number of thematic reviews. We are recognised in particular for our excellent employer engagement, the significant benefits of our training and our high learner success rates.
