Can I use the Apprenticeship Levy to train my existing staff?
The short answer is yes, but you need to do it the right way.
This year, the University of West of England (UWE) has joined forces with GC as joint academic sponsors, and we look forward to another year championing cyber security education across the county.
We're excited to be the region’s go-to training centre for Electric Vehicle (EV) and Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), with a range of short courses launching in the New Year at our Gloucester Campus.
"Take nothing you see and touch for granted as that leads to mediocrity. If designed by man, every line on the drawing serves a purpose and if you can use logic and reason to understand that purpose – no matter how obscure that might be - you will understand the designer’s intentions and thus the engineering art you hold in your hand."
"In our engineering degree courses, we tailor the skillset to meet business needs relevant to our employer partners. Your apprentices will be working in the knowledge that at the end of their apprenticeship they will have a qualification that is tremendously valuable to them individually and to you as an employer."
“Many employers are still unaware of the government funding available for apprentices over 18 and if they are able to engage in an apprenticeship as a mature student. It is lovely to see that anyone of any age has various options to pursue their desired career in."
"I get to work with some amazing businesses and wonderful colleagues. In any typical day I could be in the office, on a construction site, a coffee shop, working from home, in one of our workshops… the list could go on and on. There is always something to learn in FE which keeps me on my feet!”
The team actively works with over 1000 employers to upskill and develop their workforces, in particular focusing on building the skills of tomorrow and ensuring apprenticeships are relevant, responsive and enable apprentices to make a significant contribution to the success of their business; while supporting the apprentices every step of the way.
This is the third year in a row when the College has been recognised for its ongoing contribution to the success of its apprentices and their employers – GC won the Training Provider of the Year in 2021 and 2020.
