Apprenticeship & Commercial Programmes
Our SMART Service...
We have trained over 2000 dual fuel gas and electricity engineers, helping some of the UK’s largest energy companies build their workforce and meet Smart Meter installation targets. We can help your business recruit and train new team members with bespoke training programmes and upgrade the skill sets and knowledge of existing employees with commercial up-skill courses. With Smart installation targets pushed back until 2024, we remain committed to helping providers equip their workforce with the skill set to meet the renewed targets.
We have been in the business for over 30 years and in that time have successfully launched the careers of over 2000 dual fuel engineers.
We are the trusted partner of some of the UK’s largest energy companies, and ensure their engineers are trained to the highest standards.
Class leading facilities allows apprentices to hone their skills in real-world environments before they begin life out in the field.
Rapid Development Programme
Our in-centre training programme takes new recruits and gives them the skills, confidence and competence to begin installation work in 18 weeks.
Refresher and up-skill courses support the continued development of your employees beyond their initial apprenticeship.
We can take care of uniform distribution, stocking of vans, and deliver customer service training to ingrain your culture before they hit the road!
If you’re an employer with a pay bill over £3 million each year, you must pay the apprenticeship levy each month.
The levy due by an employer is paid to HMRC through the PAYE process alongside payment of Income Tax and National Insurance contributions and is held in a 'digital fund'. Your digital funds can be used to fund the recruitment of apprentices into your workforce as well as support the skills development of your existing employees.
The use of the levy for funding apprenticeships commenced after 1st May 2017 - Funds you don’t use will expire 24 months after they enter your account. For example, funds entering your account in September 2019 will expire in September 2021.
For further information or to discuss how we can support you in making the most out of your Levy, please contact our dedicated Apprenticeship Team.
