Government boost for Supply Chain Apprenticeships

Mar 29, 2021 | Article, News

CP Training, the training and qualification arm of the Supply Chain Academy (both Uniserve Group companies) has welcomed new government incentives, to help businesses invest in the skills they need to recover and grow.

Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak MP, announced in the Budget earlier this month that the employer scheme for hiring Apprentices would be extended until 30 September 2021, with an additional boost to the existing incentive payment.

Under the scheme’s extension, businesses will be eligible for £3,000 for each new Apprentice hired between 1st April 2021 and 30 September 2021, regardless of their age.

For employers hiring new Apprentices aged 16 to 18 and those under 25 with an Education, Health and Care Plan, they will in addition receive the existing £1,000 incentive that is already in place, bringing the total amount that employers will receive to £4,000.

As well as the bonus extension a new innovative flexi-Apprenticeship programme, “Flexi-Job” Apprenticeships which is due to start in Jan 2022, will allow people to work for a number of different employers in the same sector.

Individuals will be linked to an agency, instead of a single employer, meaning they will be able to develop their skills by taking on different jobs with multiple employers in one sector.

Neil Roll, Operations Director at SCA said; “Our apprenticeships are really popular because they drive up skills for both new entrants and existing teams so they can gain higher level skills even to degree level.”

We specialise in developing supply chain professionals through our supply chain career pathway framework, which develops apprentices from Level 3 (equivalent to an ‘A’ Level) to Level 6 degree.

For more information about our apprenticeships contact Alex Mortimer, Commercial Director on am@supplychainacademy.org.uk or 01708 259 450.
