They help you attract and retain new talent

The Free2Learn team has a proven track record in Apprenticeship recruitment and training delivery. Over 250 apprentices have been sourced, screened and recruited. By welcoming new apprentices into your organisation, you are giving young individuals the opportunity to develop a career with the relevant skills and qualifications that your business requires. A business is only as good as its workforce. Apprenticeship programmes make it easier for you to build and keep a loyal and productive workforce by enabling your employees to achieve their potential within your business.

They help you to spot home-grown talent

Recruiting new employees is an expensive, time-consuming process. Apprenticeship programmes help you to spot potential talent within your business and nurture it to realise its full potential.

Recruit Apprentices

With our in-house recruitment team, we will advertise your apprenticeship vacancies and work hard to attract the very best candidates to the roles.. Our team of experienced trainers/assessors will be able to deliver the training on site around your business operations.

Access government funding

When you employ an apprentice or upskill any employee within your workforce on an apprenticeship program, there are no additional training costs to your organisation.  We secure funding from the government in order to train all apprentices at no cost.

Meet compliance requirements

All training is carried out by fully qualified, industry specialists, and learners are fully supported throughout their programme.

Improve productivity and reduce staff turnover

Apprentices are invested in their career and feel valued by their business because both parties are embarking on a learning journey together. Apprenticeships help you build a loyal workforce within your business.

Advance employee progression

Our courses and qualifications are Levels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and come from awarding bodies including ILM, Highfield, Pearson and City & Guilds. They’re designed to help your employees progress their careers. If having a workforce with higher level skills is the goal, this can easily be achieved via the apprenticeship pathway.

Client Management Support

Free2Learn clients receive support from a Business Development Manager and Account Manager. Your Business Development Manager will assist you with all your Apprenticeship Levy queries and will discuss how to best maximise your contribution. An office based Account Manager will ensure that your day to day questions are answered and your contract is running smoothly.

Reporting

To ensure your business is kept fully up to date on learner progress, Free2Learn will provide a monthly progress report, highlighting areas of strength and high performance and concerns that will need to be addressed with individual learners.
