Workplace Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships can transform your business, making it more efficient, productive and resilient.

Pilot has helped to launch and advance hundreds of careers, developed new Apprenticeship Standards and led the way in high-quality training which evolves with the needs of industry.

Apprentices enjoy our engaging courses, say they feel well supported and get confidence from being able to relate and apply their new skills to their work straight away.

We specialise in Apprenticeships across, Team Leadership and Management, Business Administration, Customer Service and more.

An apprenticeship programme gives all people the opportunity to work for a real employer, earn a real salary and gain a real qualification whilst obtaining valuable workplace skills and experience. Apprenticeships are nationally accredited programmes that involve a competency qualification, knowledge qualification and accredited support with English and Maths.

We also work with local employers to link local job seekers to vacancies. For Employers, taking on an apprentice is a cost effective way of supporting an investment in the company’s future workforce. Anyone that’s living in England, over 16 years old and not in full-time education can apply to be an apprentice.

Quality is key to Apprenticeships. All Apprenticeships must be at least 12 months long and lead to a national qualification that is respected by employers around the world.

What happens if employers take on an apprentice who needs help with English and maths?

If you employ an apprentice who needs extra help with English and maths, additional payments are made to your training provider. This does not come out of your Apprenticeship Levy funds.

How much does an Apprenticeship cost?

You can get help from the Government to pay for Apprenticeship Training.
The amount you pay depends on whether you are a big enough employer to pay the Apprenticeship Levy (you pay more than £3 million in salaries every year) or not.

All employers must now set up a Digital Apprenticeship Service account with the Education and Skills Funding Agency to manage their Apprenticeship funding.

An Apprenticeship is a structured training programme for employees at any stage of their career. They can be starting their first job, changing their job, or be advancing their skills.

Apprenticeships are available at different skill levels from Level 2 (equivalent to 5 GCSEs) to Level 6 (comparable to a bachelor or masters degree). They take between one and six years to complete, but most take no more than two years.
