Paying the Apprenticeship Levy?

Invest your levy in one of Pareto's best in class new apprenticeships.

Apprenticeships have long been associated with young people learning on the job - ok, maybe not quite as young as the trainees 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 the heart of business priorities. 

Pareto Law, market leaders in sales training, are one of the first ROATP approved (Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers) sales training companies and are at the forefront of apprenticeship training. Our dynamic programme aims to ensure that we can support our clients with as many of their training needs as possible, bringing valuable growth to their businesses.

What apprenticeship training courses are Pareto offering?

Pareto Law are the market leading sales training company in the UK. We've trained over 100,000 sales professionals in the UK, from graduates to Sales Directors and above. This makes us perfectly placed to deliver a range of sales, customer service and management related courses. The courses we've launched so far are:

IT Technical Sales Level 3

Team Leader Level 3

Customer Service Level 2

Operational Manager Level 5

As the new apprenticeship standards are very broad, we can add value by bringing in elements of our tried and tested open courses, which have been perfected over the course of our two decades of experience in the sales training industry. 

How does the funding work?

If you're a levy-paying company, you'll probably be aware that your levy payment is held in your HMRC digital account, from which monthly payments are made directly to your training partner as your staff receive their apprenticeship training. If you don't use your levy pot within 24 months, the government reserves the right to transfer your fund to other employers, so making the most of your investment and acting quickly is key. You can use your levy pot to fund the entire apprenticeship. Check out our guide to the apprenticeship levy. If you're NOT a levy payer then we hope to be able to offer apprenticeships for you from Q1 of 2018. 

If you haven't yet decided your apprenticeship strategy or training partners, then talk to our expert team at Pareto today.  

Why a Sales Apprenticeship?

Sales is a universal business function, key to growth, irrespective of industry or business size. In recognition of this, the government has created the IT Technical Sales Apprenticeship, Level 3, and is in the process of finalising the new B2B Sales Executive Level 4 standard. 

Pareto's new B2B Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship is due to launch later this year.

We are also strategic partners of the APS (Association of Professional Sales) who led the trailblazer group for this much anticipated new standard. You can rely on Pareto for the very latest updates on the new Level 4 standard as it goes through final government process and approval. Call our expert team and look out for the latest news on the apprenticeships section of our site.

4 New Pareto Apprenticeships available Q4 2017

We will also be providing the following apprenticeships from Q4 this year: Customer Service Practitioner Level 2, Operations Department Manager Level 5, Financial Services Customer Advisor Level 2, Junior Management Consultant Level 4 and B2B Sales Executive Level 4*.

All of these apprenticeships, (*with the exception of the B2B Sales level 4, which is awaiting standard approval) are already government approved, so you can use your levy to fund them now.

Remember, for SMEs not affected by the levy, the government has also committed to paying 90% of apprenticeship costs for eligible employees, making apprenticeship training and development more accessible across the board.
