You’ve got the talent, they’ve been embedded in your organisation for years and they can give you a fresh perspective that no one else can. If you truly want to make your service better, start from within.
Build an elite team from familiar faces who already understand your vision. You'll be creating the next generation of community leaders, accelerating the progress of your organisation through optimising skill sets and disburdening workloads.
Leverage your spend on the apprenticeship levy (or take advantage of Levy Transfer) to create and develop key members of your staff team who will contribute to the areas that need it most. Save massive costs on recruitment and get back valuable time by eradicating the need to interview unsuitable staff.
Deploy apprentices to support your current staff team across the areas of your organisation that would benefit from a familiar, capable pair of hands. Across all areas of your service, your apprentices will alleviate pressure and stress across bursting schedules.
School leavers and existing staff can now get a degree without the debt. You'll be protecting them from future financial and mental health issues whilst supporting them towards a successful, meaningful career.
If your organisation has a wage bill of £3m or above you will be paying into the apprenticeship levy.
If you are a school, you may also pay the levy through your local authority or MAT. This fund can only be spent with an approved apprenticeship provider delivering an approved apprenticeship. Apprenticeship programmes are available for both new and existing staff members.
With the Premier Pathways solution you will recruit people from within your organisation who already share your vision. You will decrease your recruitment fees and have a constant talent pool. This will take stress off current staff and open capacity for projects you were once unable to do. This is a great initiative to attract more students to youth work and engage with the community. All of this without spending a penny on training.
