Ask About Apprenticeships

Kent has been a levy paying employer since April 2017. From May 2019, if our funds have not been utilised, they are returned to HRMC.

At this time, Kent’s fund is not fully allocated, so this is a good time to “Ask About Apprenticeships”

As an employer, the University of Kent is committed to supporting new and existing employees through Apprenticeship standards.  Apprenticeships are for everyone regardless of age, gender or job level.

An Apprenticeship programme combines work, training, and studying so you can ‘earn while you learn’. The introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy in April 2017, gives employers, such as the University of Kent, the opportunity to develop their workforce using Apprenticeships which are fully funded by the levy.

This means the levy pays for 100% of your Apprenticeship training, with no cost to you or your department.

There is a huge range of occupations covered. Currently there are just under 700 standards being developed or already approved.
