Taking on an apprentice is an opportunity to bring in someone dedicated to developing and progressing their career in your company, who will learn about the business, your products and your customer’s needs from the ground up
Apprentices bring new ideas, a fresh perspective and alternative solutions to your business along with a loyalty, commitment and desire to be part of your company’s journey.
Developing an apprenticeship programme can be a key part of your long term talent pipeline, succession planning and investment in the future.
Recruiting an apprentice is similar to the usual recruitment process – we act as the recruiter, listing the vacancy and managing the applications and you will interview candidates to see if you think they can do the role and whether they will fit in with your culture.
The difference is that TDM will work with you to make sure that the job specification matches your requirements as well as those of the Institute of Apprenticeships. We also interview candidates as part of a rigorous process to ensure that the best candidates are sent to you to interview.
You will have a dedicated TDM staff member to guide you through the process and assess your business requirements.
For businesses paying into the Apprenticeship Levy (currently business with a wage bill over £3 million), the programme fee is covered by the levy itself, subject to your current usage of the levy fund. For non-levy paying business (businesses with a wage bill under £3 million), you can still access levy funding covering 95% of the programme cost.
Levy funding can be a little complex with different funding pots available in the Midlands – please ask us any questions you have about levy funding by calling 0333 10 100 40 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Taking on an apprentice is an excellent way to invest in the local area and people, and will show your business’ Corporate Social Responsibility; hiring an apprentice means that skills are kept in the region, younger people are invested in, older people have the opportunity to re-skill and you are directly contributing to boosting the local economy.
Our learners are assigned a Skills & Knowledge Coach (SKC) who develops their hard, technical skills and knowledge, and a Performance & Development Coach (PDC) who focuses on their soft skills.
We specialise in the delivery of Tech and Apprenticeships and training, to support your skills needs and help your organisation to digitally transform.
We operate with a local focus, helping to address the priority skills shortages across the West Midlands, through the use of Government-funded training and Apprenticeships.
We support employers to retain staff, reskill them through various Government funded opportunities and recruit new staff members with the use of Skills Bootcamps and Apprenticeships.
