Employing an apprentice is a great opportunity for you to add a hardworking and talented person into your team. With our support at Creative Alliance, your apprentice will be trained to your standards and within your ethos: that is at the heart of our partnership approach to work based learning.

Free Recruitment Service

At Creative Alliance we know how time-consuming and costly it can be to recruit the right staff to your business. We will advertise your vacancy, screen applicants and pre-interview potential candidates to ensure you only interview the most appropriate people for your specific role – all free of charge – saving you time and money.

Support with Apprenticeship Costs

As a non-levy paying employer, 90% of the funding for the training will be covered by the government. If a candidate is 16-18 there is no cost to you as an employer. If a learner is over 19 a mandatory employer contribution will apply. Employer contributions range from £40 to £95 per month depending on the apprenticeship programme. If you’re a levy paying employer, please see our Levy Guide

Grant for employers

If you employ a 16-18-year-old apprentice into your organisation you can claim a £1000 investment grant to support you employing your apprentice.

Duration of Apprenticeships

Our apprenticeships last 13 to 18 months depending on the programme.
