Government approves funding for recruitment apprenticeships

January 11, 2018  /   No Comments

Government approves funding for recruitment apprenticeshipsThe government has recently approved the qualifications and funding of apprenticeships for recruitment consultants and recruitment resourcers, meaning that recruiters can now access funds from the apprenticeship levy to train their staff.

The Department for Education has approved funding of up to £5,000 per apprentice (recruitment consultant at level 3, recruitment resourcer at level 2) designed by the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC)-led trailblazers initiative, which began its work in 2014.

REC chief executive, Kevin Green, said:

“We want recruitment to be a career of choice and apprenticeships are an important way to bring fresh talent into our sector. We need to secure thousands of new recruiters to meet potential growth in years ahead. Now our members can access funds gathered via the apprenticeship levy to attract and train more people for their own businesses, helping our industry to grow and thrive.

“Recruitment is a great industry to work in. With total revenues of £32 billion it’s the engine that has driven our incredible jobs market for decades by helping businesses find the people they need and transforming lives by placing individuals into fulfilling work.”

Derek Goff, Learning & Development manager at Serocor Solutions and chair of the recruitment trailblazers programme employer panel, added:

“It’s great news that the government has confirmed the funding for both these recruitment apprenticeships at a level which enables a robust and effective delivery. It has always been our primary objective to create a programme of learning that is entirely fit for purpose and meets the needs of our modern, dynamic recruitment industry.”
