One of the largest colleges in the country, we are committed to helping employers invest in a more professional, skilled and sustainable workforce for the future. We pride ourselves on delivering effective skills solutions for employers – and apprenticeships form an important part of that work. We have a wealth of expertise in helping to recruit and train apprentices for vital roles across diverse industry sectors. In 2015-16 alone, we supported around 2,200 apprentices – and their employers – to achieve their goals.
The Apprenticeship Levy requires all employers operating in the UK which have an annual payroll bill in excess of £3 million to make an investment by training apprentices.
This will bring our country into line with other modern economies, where the co-funding of apprenticeships by the interested parties – the employer and the government – is already the standard model.
The Apprenticeship Levy will directly fund apprenticeship training programmes, with the aim of increasing the number of people in apprenticeships to 3 million by 2020. It means employers can take control of – and benefit from – a further £3 billion that will be added to the apprenticeship pot over the course of the next five years.

We will support employers to maximise their return on investment. Our dedicated Business Consultants can provide you and your organisation with the expertise to guide you effortlessly through the new system.
More than 100,000 employers, in over 160,000 workplaces currently use Apprenticeships to attract new talent, re-skill existing staff and tackle skill shortages. Derby College Apprenticeships are available to businesses of all sizes and from all sectors.
