Government Update on Employer Apprenticeship Incentives

We have great news! Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak has extended the employer apprenticeship incentive scheme! This means that companies are able to claim back £3000 on all new apprentice starts until January 2022.

At Access Skills, we offer our Level 5 Diploma as part of the apprenticeship programme. We are one of the top training providers for learners undertaking the Level 5 apprenticeship programme, with our achievement rate some 20% above the sector average.

This government funded apprenticeship is intended for those who are, or want to become, a Registered Manager or leader to fulfil their career ambitions and potential. We at Access Skills use our deep understanding of the Care Sector to adapt our flexible and dynamic programme to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of managers and workplace requirements. The holistic and flexible approach is suitable for those who want to develop outstanding leadership and management skills.

Our work-task focus and practical methodology means that all resources and individual tutor support are designed around managers’ actual work practices, enhancing performance and reducing worries about time pressures and “fitting everything in”. This practical link between knowledge, understanding and application is important. When coupled with reflection and guidance, it encourages effective behaviours and creates improved practice, despite these difficult times.

All apprenticeships require a minimum of 20% of work time to be spent completing programme related activity. In our view, we believe that all managers should continue to strive to set aside this amount of positive focus time in their working routine. Using this time to focus on improving their own performance, and the service they manage, will encourage outstanding and excellent service performance to follow.

We provide our learners with free access to the Quality Compliance Systems (QCS) care management and compliance system. This facilitates changes to legislation and practice to be communicated to the learner’s care service so policies and procedures can remain current. The Management Toolkits have provided further support for planning and integration of required changes and improved compliance.

If you want to benefit from government funded training and our in depth-provision – just give us a call or drop an email and we will be there for you every step of the way.
