Apprentices are a vital investment in the future. A well managed programme can help enhance productivity, improve business performance and develop a committed and competent workforce.

To help support businesses in taking on an apprentice, FIS has created a useful guide detailing the support and funding available to help you to make your apprenticeship programme a success. It provides employers with the information needed to recruit, register and secure funding for apprentices.  The guide includes information on the apprenticeship funding pledge and receive system and details on the CITB Grant ‘Travel to Train’.

The guide also includes access to the CITB Apprenticeship Recruitment Toolkit, which provides further guidance for recruiting and supporting apprenticeships.  The toolkit details the various routes to hiring an apprentice across England, Scotland, and Wales.  There is also, a choice of four other sections to explore, including support available from CITB.  This includes assisting employers with completing paperwork, or financial support, with a breakdown on how to claim funding and CITB grants for apprentices.  

If you would like to talk through the options for employing apprentices give us a call, 0121 707 0077 or email we will be happy to help.
