Learn Devon appenticeshipsour brand new apprenticeship offer

Exciting changes are happening with our Apprenticeships here at Learn Devon.  We are expanding our Apprenticeship offer to now include:

the value of apprenticeships

An apprentice can bring enthusiasm, passion and innovation to your business as well as providing real, measurable business benefits.

Having an apprentice can help you develop well-trained, motivated staff, increase productivity and demonstrate your commitment to staff development.

See our infographic to find out some of the benefits apprenticeships bring to businesses.

why choose Learn Devon?

We provide apprenticeship training through a mix of e-learning and face-to-face sessions. This approach also means we can be flexible to your needs and that wherever you are based in Devon, we can provide an apprenticeship package to suit you and your apprentice.

Please note that your apprentice will need time away from work to study.

what we will do for you

From your initial enquiry until the training is complete, our dedicated team will support you and your apprentice. We will:

  • help you decide which apprenticeship is best for you
  • give you advice on recruiting your apprentice
  • discuss a training plan with you for your apprentice
  • manage the training process and help you to recruit your apprentice


We will be adding new types of apprenticeships over time. If these apprenticeships are not suitable for your requirements, please contact us – we would be happy to discuss the options available to you.

how we deliver our apprenticeships

‘off the job training’

Apprentices are entitled to have a minimum of 20% of their employed time as ‘off the job training’. This time away from the work place is important for apprentices to complete all the elements of their apprenticeship.

the apprenticeship levy

The apprenticeship levy will apply to employers in all sectors.  The levy will be paid on annual pay bills in excess of £3 million – so less than 2% of UK employers will pay the levy.

From April 2017, the levy will fund new apprenticeships.  In England, control of apprenticeship funding will be put in the hands of employers through the Digital Apprenticeship Service.  The levy will be charged at a rate of 0.5% of an employer’s pay bill.  Each employer will receive an allowance of £15,000 to offset against their levy payment.
