Share to Support: Levy Video Release
Since the scheme began, over £2 million worth of apprenticeship levy has been pledged by large employers to be spent on apprenticeship training costs for small and medium sized enterprises in the West of England!
So far this gifted levy, which would have otherwise been transferred back to Treasury, has benefitted 80 businesses in the region with 216 apprenticeships agreed to fund. These apprenticeships include upskills and new recruits in sectors from engineering, manufacturing, and construction to care services, digital and hospitality, making a huge and lasting impact in the community.
We are excited to release this short film discussing the effect of the scheme throughout the region. A huge thank you to Dan Norris (Labour Metro Mayor for the West of England), Judith Squires (Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost for the University of Bristol), Rebecca Scott MBE (Employability and Opportunity Manager for the University of Bristol), Terry Kerans (Operations Manager at BU Energy Solutions) & Kian (Electrical Apprenticeship at BU Energy Solutions) for taking part and helping us share the message and power of apprenticeship levy sharing.
