We want to assist our members attract and develop more apprenticeships within the housing sector.

How to run an apprenticeship

We have run various apprentice viability workshops and are more than happy to consult our members on DAS accounts, accessing funding to support apprentices and mechanisms to make them work

Viability

  • Training will be fully funded for levy payers until your funds are depleted.
  • You can then draw down funds for unlimited further apprentices at a 5% contribution (this equates to approx. £300-£450 per employee)
  • Non Levy Payers can draw down funds for upto 10 apprentices at a 5% contribution (this equates to approx. £300-£450 per employee)
  • Additional costs may include membership fees if additional qualifications are inside the apprenticeship. E.g The CIPS, AAT. Membership fees cannot be paid using the levy funds
  • SEC may be able to support you with gap funding, or sponsored apprentices, contact us to know more.
