Information for Employers

Add value to your business by hiring an Apprentice

Milton Keynes College is dedicated to meeting the needs of your business.

We have over 25 years’ experience of delivering high quality apprenticeship programmes we offer a wide range of apprenticeship frameworks, at all levels that can meet both your strategic business objectives and the individual training needs of your employees.

Apprenticeships combine work-related practical skills with theoretical knowledge, enabling apprentices to learn all the skills necessary for the job role and to gain relevant nationally-recognised qualifications.  They will enable your business to support the development of a person entering employment for the first time, or for up-skilling existing staff already employed within the company.

Business Apprentice

Apprenticeship programmes can be tailored to meet your needs as an individual employer. This can ensure that your Apprentices gain the right skills to meet the requirements of your business and to offer a solution to succession planning, company growth and future skills development.

Through the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) we can offer a dedicated service in supporting with the recruitment of Apprentices.  This includes advertising the vacancy on the National Apprenticeship Service recruitment website and supporting with shortlisting applicants for you to interview.

Apprenticeship Grants of £1500 for each recruited Apprentice may be available to you as an employer and we would be able to advise individual businesses in relation to eligibility criteria.
