Grow, develop and strengthen your sales workforce

Drive your business into the future with sales apprenticeships

Grow, develop and enhance your workforce with a sales apprenticeship provider. Apprenticeships have long been associated with young people learning a trade in a limited area of industry. In reality, professional apprenticeships are open to anyone over the age of 16 and operate in a wide range of dynamic, forward-thinking industries. We are passionate about developing and shaping learners into future business leaders and we know that excellent sales training and support is essential to facilitate this development. Evolve your business with a targeted and comprehensive apprenticeship sales training plan designed to unleash potential and create long-term performance and growth for your company.


Recent Changes in the Apprenticeship Scheme


Following the latest major announcements by the government on funding to support the UK economy and to encourage investment in jobs, jobs, jobs; many are now wondering what does this mean and how does this work in practical terms? ‘Kick Starter Programme’, Traineeships, Apprenticeship funding – Rishi Sunak laid out measures to stimulate businesses and organisations to support efforts in avoiding a youth unemployment crisis that would massively impact the future. 


So how bad could it be?  A recent report from the IPPR (Institute for Public Policy Research) predicted that 1 million 18-24 year olds risk being unemployed by the end of 2020. The impact of this is a growth in state dependency and a reduction in economic activity, further enhancing the challenges that are faced in the future.


Whilst it is a harsh reality that no measures will be able to protect every job and every business, this committed investment from the government can provide both a short term support to reduce the impact on people, whilst also encouraging companies to invest in their future as the UK economy looks to rebuild.


With the ‘free money’ on offer, the biggest risk is making sure that it is spent in the right areas on the right things.  With the thought of £2,000 for any employer who chooses to hire an apprentice aged 16-24 into a new job or £1,500 for any apprentice new hire over the age of 25, it is easy to get caught up in a public funded ‘Gold Rush’.


Getting this right presents a real opportunity for organisations to grow new talent within their team and to start individuals on their new career journey. Get this wrong and it risks being a failed opportunity to invest in future talent for our economy – it also risks causing huge damage to the value and purpose of apprenticeships and traineeships for future candidates.

How apprenticeship training and funding works

If your wage bill is higher than £3 million then your business will be paying the Apprenticeship Levy. The Levy is charged at 0.5% of your wage bill and this money is collected in your HMRC digital account until it is either spent on apprenticeship training for your business, or expires after the 24 month period. If you don't pay the levy, then you are eligible to receive 95% government funding for any apprenticeship training you enrol your staff on. This makes apprenticeships a highly affordable, cost-effective solution for workplace training for all UK employers. Check out our Guide to the Levy to find out more. 

As an apprenticeship provider, here at Pareto we offer the following government approved sales apprenticeships:

Sales Executive Level 4

Customer Service Practitioner Level 2

Operations Department Manager Level 5

Team Leader Level 3

IT Technical Sales Level 3

Digital Marketer Level 3 

Why invest in sales apprenticeships?

83% of organisations have said their experience with hiring apprentices has been good or excellent and BT’s head of apprenticeships Ann Potterton said  “We get ambitious, driven, positive, enthusiastic people who value the opportunity. They pay that back in many different ways[…] half of the apprentices that stay with us are promoted at least once within three years. The company now have CEOs of individual business units who started at BT as apprentices”

Investing in training your staff is essential for business growth, and sales apprenticeship providers are offering businesses around the country the ideal training solution.

To fully utilise your levy fund, or to take full advantage of government 95% co-funding, apprenticeship training is the clear choice for savvy businesses. High-performing sales organisations are 2 x as likely to provide ongoing training as low-performing ones. Why? Training is absolutely essential to facilitate innovation and growth within your workforce.
