      Apprenticeship Programme Development

      Workforce planning - £850*

      Mapping your skills requirements to the new apprenticeship standards can prove a tricky task. In this workshop, our specialist consultants will engage with key stakeholders to identify needs and recommend appropriate apprenticeship programmes. You’ll receive a personalised report that details the workforce assessment, forecasts future needs and defines a detailed apprenticeship plan to share across the enterprise.

      Levy guidance - Free

      Understanding the economies of the levy payment mechanism and utilising it for maximum effect is our bag. NCFE can help with your levy calculation, showing you how to leverage government incentives to get the most for your money. We’ll also calculate the internal costs associated with supporting and managing apprentices, providing a total cost of ownership report for you to share across the enterprise.

      Value proposition - Free

      With 170 years of heritage in learning, NCFE is well placed to walk you through the value of apprenticeships to your organisation’s development. We’ll forge a programme schedule, map apprenticeships against defined business needs and identify which levy funds you can leverage for success. Together, we’ll help you explore ways to maximise the levy opportunity and drive value across the enterprise.

      Apprenticeship Programme Management

      apprenticeship selection - FREE - POA

      Apprenticeship selection - internal and external

      For employers wanting to recruit new apprentices and up-skill existing staff we offer a blended approach. Our (FREE) internal skills assessment and selection process is ideal for employers wanting to up-skill and train existing staff using apprenticeship standards - while our external apprenticeship module (POA) out-tasks the recruitment process to us on your behalf, ensuring you can fulfil specific geographic or demographic talent in-fill requirements.

      provider selection - free

      With a pedigree in vocational education that spans 170 years, NCFE can work with your in-house
      training team or existing provider to ensure appropriate training is in place for apprentices. As well as calling on our extensive network of partners to identify quality local providers, we can help you tender for instances of high apprenticeship delivery volumes to ensure you gain the best possible rates and can maximise your levy monies.

      learning management service - £

      Acting as a single point of contact between provider, government and awarding organisation, we’ll take the hassle out of apprenticeship management. As part of this process, we’ll programme apprenticeship learning in line with levy payments, provider capacity and employer objectives. And, to ensure you can visualise learning progress, we’ll deliver a monthly report that makes it easy to identify if corrective interventions are needed to achieve speedy and successful programme completion.

      Apprenticeship Programme Assessment

      gateway facilitation - free

      Connecting apprentice, employer and provider, we’ll help define the conditions that must be met before an apprentice is progressed to end point assessment. The gateway plan we develop will features regular discussions to measure learner progress and determine their readiness for assessment – done right, this process maximises staff retention and learning engagement. NCFE can also assist with accessing government e-voucher funding for assessment, scheduling the assessment stages required to complete the assessment standard.

      end point assessment - standard specific

      One of the few organisations approved by the Skills Funding Agency to deliver end point assessments, our team of experienced assessment professionals will work with employers and training providers to offer full end point assessment services, including designing, developing and delivering quality and robust assessments. Our service is flexible and responsive, allowing us to offer bespoke assessment services to fit with the specific needs of your sector.

      continued development - free

      Learning doesn’t end with assessment and certification. Our apprenticeship consultants are on hand to help map the progress of your people and elevate the enterprise skills bank to benefit the business. Our pathways include further apprenticeship standards and other routes, such as qualifications, short courses and coaching to maximise workplace learning and development.
