Get ready for National Apprenticeship Week 7 - 13 February 2022

As a proud supporter of National Apprenticeship Week, we’re running an entire month of apprenticeship events. Sign up to future events below, or catch up on demand.

How can you use apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships enable organisations across the UK to develop new hires and upskill existing employees. They offer in-depth practical learning and development and can benefit people in all stages of their career.

If you’re not using it already, the apprenticeship levy represents an untapped opportunity for you and your business to attract and retain in-demand talent. Intended to upskill your workforce in all areas and from all role levels, in England, the Apprenticeship Levy is available to help you fund apprenticeship training and assessment costs.

We've supported over 2,000 organisations in optimising their levy funding. Sharing commercial insight and technical expertise, we can help you understand your position, the financial implications and possible opportunities of the levy.

Apprenticeship programmes offered by Grant Thornton

Our skills development programmes cover leadership and management, finance training, coaching and a wide range of digital and data skills for all levels within your business. We've partnered with high-quality training partners, including leading business schools and specialist providers to design and deliver development programmes grounded in world-class theory, market leading insights and practical application to deliver immediate impact in the workplace.

Where applicable, funding is available through the apprenticeship levy, so your organisation can benefit at little or no additional cost.
