Attracting, developing, and retaining talent has never been more important. In the future, up to 92% of UK mid-market businesses will need skills that don’t currently exist in their workforce.
Is your workforce fit for purpose? Talent and skills investment is vital to secure the loyalty of your people and attract in-demand talent. Apprenticeships deliver the skills both organisations and employees need to achieve their goals.
We’ve supported over 2,000 organisations to optimise their apprenticeship levy and get what they need from apprenticeships. You can get help to realise opportunities through a number of programmes in partnership with leading training providers.

ABM – Upskilling through the apprenticeship levy
“Ensuring all business needs are met is equally important to us as the development of our teams. Working with Elaine Jacobs, a manager from Grant Thornton’s talent solutions team, I was able to help the business access insight into the commercial benefits of structured continued professional development, such as increased productivity, greater opportunity and diversity, and better internal mobility. Combining this with the ability to use funding from our apprenticeship levy pot to pay for training suppliers helped to make a clear business case. We know from feedback that the apprenticeship programme is reigniting interest in skills development, especially with employees who have been with the company for a long period.”Kirsty Read Learning & Development Co-ordinator, ABM
