Fit for Purpose & Apprenticeship Levy Compliant Training
The London College of Apprenticeship Training is a specialist provider of Apprenticeships. Our services are designed to make best, and most effective use, of the apprenticeship levy and the Government co-funding that you can access as an employer. We design bespoke, fit for purpose, apprenticeship programmes for both your existing staff and new entrants to your business and make sure that the training is delivered to high standard and on time. Our training is creative, innovative, engaging and purposeful and we use apprenticeship standards that have been designed for employers by employers.
The world of apprenticeships is complex. The new apprenticeship levy (from April 2017) means big changes for what you can and can't do with an apprenticeship and how it's paid for. If you are a large employer you'll pay for it through a new tax system. If not, there's a system of Government co-funding. We offer a free advisory service to get you started and if you like we'll work with you to produce an Apprenticeship Levy Blueprint - a plan detailing what apprenticeships you should deliver to fully recover the apprenticeship levy that you have paid - or to benefit from 90% co-funding from the Government. But we start at the very beginning ...
Once you've got a clear idea of what to do and how to fund your apprenticeships we'll design a bespoke programme for you. Our apprenticeships combine input from leading industry experts (our Masterclasses), technical workshops, 1-2-1 coaching, assessment and assignment preparation workshops, tutor supported online learning, 'shop floor' observations and feedback, English and Maths classes (compulsory if your apprentices don't already have English and Maths qualifications) and final exams and assessment preparation.
Our Course Conveners oversee your programme and make sure that your apprentices are on target. We use an online tracking and monitoring system so that we can record all of the work that your apprentices are doing on a week by week basis. We use these records to produce a detailed, and summative, monthly report that shows exactly how your apprentices are progressing and we have this independently verified by experienced examiners so that we know that our data and our report are robust. We'll give you your own login so that you can check at anytime you wish.
But that's not all. In some circumstances we'll need to work with other training providers who are specialists in something that you need that we don't do. We'll manage that provider for you as well so that your whole scheme runs in a seamless fashion.
Our aim is simple. You recover 100% of your apprenticeship levy. Your apprentices get excellent training. Your apprenticeship programme has real impact for your business.
