Halesowen College offers a skills partnership with employers in order to work with local businesses to develop the skills that they need to be successful. This provides excellent opportunities for our students and addresses the priorities of the local industrial strategy. Halesowen College can offer a wide range of benefits to local businesses and the wider community such as room hire, and work placement learning partnerships.
The Apprenticeship Levy is payable by companies with a gross salary bill greater than £3 million.
These employers pay 0.5% of the salary bill over the £3 million threshold into the Apprenticeship Levy and this money can then be used to pay for apprenticeship training. For example, a business with a gross salary bill of £10,000,000 will pay £35,000 per year into the levy.
This is a great chance to reinvest in the business, because if you don’t use it, you lose it.
We offer a bespoke service to businesses, helping with the planning of the levy budget and providing the necessary training.
