NEW APPOINTMENT AT QUEST - HEAD OF FUNDING AND COMPLIANCE

Quest is delighted to announce that Adele Lee has joined the team.  Adele is taking responsibility for compliance, management information, external contracts, funding and business support. Adele brings a wealth of experience and expertise and is a welcome addition to the business.

WHAT IS THE NEW APPRENTICESHIP LEVY?

The Levy is a new government initiative which will initially target large employers across all industries.

The Levy will replace all apprenticeship funding that is currently being provided by the government. The government is introducing the Levy to help fund three million apprenticeships by 2020.  

The Levy will apply to employers in the UK who have an annual wage bill of £3 million. These employers will receive a 10% top up each month from the government based on their monthly contribution. Non-Levy employers will be required to make a contribution of 10% which will be paid directly to the provider of their choice for the training that each of their apprentices receives. The government will provide the 90% balance. Those employers who have less than 50 staff will be entitled to free training for any 16-18 year old apprentices who are part of their workforce.  

DAS (Digital Apprenticeship Service) is a new on-line portal for employers. DAS will contain details of the employer’s funds that they have available to spend on apprenticeship training. Employers will select their training provider of choice through DAS from a list of approved apprenticeship providers.

For now, all apprenticeship training remains free of charge subject to eligibility.

NEW YEAR, NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR 2017

What are your options if college isn't working out for you or if you are stuck in a rut at work and keen to progress? Quest highlights below why work-based learning is a great start to further your career. 

Apprenticeships are a great way to learn a particular trade and combine work with studying. Quest Vocational Training offers a vast range of Apprenticeships in a number of industry sectors, ranging from Childcare, Health & Social Care, Hospitality & Catering, Business Administration and Team Leading & Management.

Apprenticeships are achieved through assessment and training in the workplace by employers and Quest's highly-skilled Assessors. Quest prides itself on offering over 1500 learners excellent career opportunities with a variety of businesses across the south.

One of Quest's management learners is Karina Sharpe, who works at The Sheiling School in Ringwood. Karina commented: "I feel that my management qualification has aided and underpinned my existing knowledge whilst providing me with theory, legislations and a professional structure. It has taught me to reflect and to continuously evaluate my working practice in order to improve and it also helped me gain a promotion within my workplace.”

John Bradford, Operations Manager at Quest added: "Apprenticeships are a great option as you really so get the best of both worlds. It poses an excellent opportunity for employees to gain a wide range of skills and knowledge specific to their chosen industry. Employers are increasingly putting a high value on the work-based learning option as more and more companies are opting in who are keen to develop and train their staff to the required industry standards."
