Apprenticeship Funding

Apprenticeships are an extremely cost-effective way to recruit new staff or upskill your team. There is a range of government funding and local authority grant schemes available, which are designed to help you train the next wave of talent or invest in your team’s professional development.

Large organisations with an annual salary bill over £3 million are required to contribute into the Apprenticeship Levy. The Apprenticeship Levy is a dedicated apprenticeship fund, which employers can use to cover the costs of apprenticeship training and assessment.

Microbusinesses and SMEs are not required to pay into the Apprenticeship Levy. Instead, the government offers a co-investment model. Under this model, the government covers 95% of the apprenticeship training and assessment costs, while the employer contributes the remaining 5%.

We’ve been delivering apprenticeships across England since 2007, and we were the first training provider to offer a completely digital approach to apprenticeship training.

Although we’re advocates of technology, we know that teaching life-changing skills needs a human touch. At Baltic, everything we do is built on a foundation of complete care.

Learn More About Us

The application process with Baltic and Plimsoll was really simple in comparison to both university applications and also some other apprenticeships. I’ve noticed throughout the jobs in my career that the application process can be just as important as the job itself.

I knew that full time education wasn’t for me. With a mortgage and bills to pay, I still needed to work full time. So an apprenticeship looked perfect for me. Combining learning with my job works well for me. I’d like to continue my apprenticeship journey with a Level 6 qualification next.

Baltic Community

We know that apprentices don’t always get the opportunity to network with other apprentices. We wanted to change that! Who better to talk to about your apprenticeship programme than others on the same journey?

All our learners are invited to join our Baltic Community platform, which aims to build a sense of community and camaraderie for our apprentices. We have created a safe space for learners to connect with other like-minded professionals, access support from their peers and coaches, and generally make the most out of their exciting apprenticeship journey!
