Don’t let the Apprenticeship Levy be just another tax burden on business.
At The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL) we believe you can leverage your levy payments to a high rate of return on investment within a very short time.
Government commissioned research on Employer Investment in Apprenticeships and Workplace Learning found that employers are able to recoup their training costs within one or two years of the completion of training – even less for some intermediate roles and for existing employees.
We also know from our 30 years’ experience this can be recouped in half the time for existing employees taken into Apprenticeship training and we can reduce this further through high income generating and add-on skills delivered very early in the training programme, which give increased income generation and improved productivity. CONEL really understands, like you, that Apprentices should never ‘just make the tea’ and every employee needs to be a productive member of staff from the day they start working.
At CONEL we’re very proud of our Apprenticeship programme and last year worked with 370 organisations to train over 1,000 apprentices.
Our overall Apprenticeship achievement rates are very high and we were ranked the best college in London, and among the top 20 nationally, for employer satisfaction in the FE Choices survey in 2016.
Last year our own survey also revealed 95% of employers were very happy with the training we provide and 97% saw an immediate improvement in employee skills and increased productivity.
“We began working with CONEL to help ease the shortage of apprentices in the dry lining industry and have been very impressed with the quality of training provided at the College and the pool of talent coming through,” said Mark Hoey, Regional Construction Director at Conneely Group.
“We are proud to have employed 30 apprentices in 2016 and looking forward to continuing the relationship with CONEL into 2017.”
One of the key benefits that our employers have identified is that Apprenticeships increase the inflow of skills to the workforce, ensuring that future skills needs are met.
Our Apprenticeship programme offers training in accounting, business, childcare, cleaning, construction, customer service, engineering, hairdressing and beauty, health and care, horticulture, hospitality, ICT and computing and management.
We also offer Pre-Apprenticeships in accounting, ICT and computing, dry wall lining and rail track engineering.
