Upskill your existing members of staff or recruit new talent

If your business is faced with reduced numbers of staff, recruitment freezes and limited spend, that doesn’t mean you need to push pause on your development.

Gloucestershire College is here to support your existing members of staff to upskill and retrain with apprenticeships. We can help fill skill gaps within your business and keep the wheels turning.

If you are looking for new talent, apprenticeships are also an affordable way to build your talent pipeline.

Our Employer Training & Apprenticeships team are here to support your business every step of the way. Explore our programmes below and get in touch with our experts today to discuss your training requirements. / 0345 155 2020

Fund training using your apprenticeship levy

The training costs for an apprenticeship can be fully funded through your apprenticeship levy.

If your organisation doesn't pay the apprenticeship levy (you have a wage bill of less than £3 million), you can still train new and existing staff through apprenticeships:

  • If your company has less than 50 employees and you take on a 16-18 year old, you are entitled to receive the training completely free of charge.


  • Your business will pay just 5% of the training costs (the government funds the rest)

If you would like to understand more about apprenticeship funding, you can contact our Employer Training & Apprenticeships team today for no-obligation advice.

Apprenticeships for every business, for everyone

Gloucestershire College can support your business with quality training delivered by industry experts.

Apprenticeships are open to anyone aged 16 or over and are not just for school leavers or entry level qualifications. Even senior managers can complete university level apprenticeships to upskill and develop your business.

Paid for by your apprenticeship levy or either 100% or 95% funded through the government, apprenticeships are a very affordable way to train your staff and increase productivity, motivation and morale.

Ranging from Level 2 to Degree, apprenticeships provide an effective development solution and are proven to increase staff retention.

We're trusted by over 1,000 businesses to deliver training for apprentices
