Here at University of Warwick, we are a proud employer of nearly 100 Apprentices in 26 different subject areas. And now we are an award winning employer, having won the Large Employer of Apprentices of the Year Award in the Coventry Freeman Guild Awards 2023 and Apprentice of the Year!
Apprenticeships allow new and existing staff at Warwick to access training; address skills gaps within their teams; provide vitality, fresh perspectives and new ideas; as well as develop mentoring skills in existing staff.
The employer-led redesign of apprenticeship standards has meant that apprenticeships are highly valued training and education routes, with an emphasis on quality, knowledge and practical skills needed in the workplace.
Apprenticeships' training fees are covered by our contribution to the apprenticeship levy and are therefore cost neutral to the department.
Many teams are starting to use the apprenticeship levy to fund training for existing staff and there are ‘career pathways/maps’ available for many of the key job functions. It is a great way to access funding for key development. Note: there is criteria regarding who can be funded for an apprenticeshipLink opens in a new window and not everyone is eligible for funding.
