Paying the Apprenticeship Levy?

Invest in Your Team with the Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship

Apprenticeships have long been associated with young people learning on the job - albeit not quite as young as the trainees in the image above! In reality the apprenticeship door is open to anyone over the age of 16. The aim is to place skills development, and the increased productivity this generates, at heart of business priorities.

As UK market leaders in sales development and training, Pareto Law will be looking to provide the new Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship once it has been approved by the Government. The Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship will provide an outstanding foundation in the fundamentals of sales, enabling a wide spectrum of employers and employees to benefit from our acclaimed sales training. It's the first in a line of new apprenticeships we are planning to introduce in the near future.

How does the funding work?

The levy payment will be held in your digital account, to be drawn upon to invest in the apprenticeship training. If you don't use your levy pot within 24 months, then the government reserves the right to transfer your fund to other employers, so making the most of your investment and acting quickly is key when the window for funding opens. As your employees embark on their apprenticeship, monthly payments are made from your digital account directly to the apprenticeship provider.

If you have not yet chosen your apprenticeship providers, then contact our expert Apprenticeship Team at Pareto today for more information on the courses we will be able to offer.

Why a Sales Apprenticeship?

Sales is a universal business function, essential for business growth, irrespective of industry or business size. In recognition of this the government are looking to approve a Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship qualification.

The Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship will utilise a blend of on and off the job training, and combine the highest standards of classroom and online learning, with continual assessment and coaching support throughout.

Who is eligible for the Sales Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships span from Level 2 to Level 7. As a rough guide, Level 2 equates to a GCSE, with level 6 & 7 being comparable to a degree. The Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship will be classed as a 'Higher Apprenticeship', suited to a wide variety of employees - from existing sales professionals wanting to build on their skills to those taking their first step into a sales role. Examples of relevant job titles would be sales trainees, executives and managers or anyone performing business development, sales development or account management roles.

The Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship will be the first of several apprenticeships we plan to introduce in the coming months.
