We are in the 75% of top quality providers that have been approved by The Department for Education (DfE) and the Skills Finding Agency (SFA) to deliver apprenticeships to Levy paying employers from May 2017.

Are you a Levy paying employer? If you’re an employer with an annual payroll bill that is more than £3 million, you will have to pay the Levy.

We endured an arduous application process to make sure that they meet the criteria and  apprenticeship quality expectations. The SFA took into consideration “due diligence, capability, quality and financial health to assess their capability to deliver high-quality apprenticeship training.”

The register is a crucial milestone in delivering the government’s wider reforms to make apprenticeships more rigorous, better structured, independently assessed and more clearly aligned to the needs of employers.

Campbell Christie CBE, Principal and CEO said: “I am delighted to see the hard work of my Apprenticship team, at the application stage, being rewarded in this recognition.  Their efforts have helped the College achieve Top 3 status in the country for Learner Satisfaction and Employer Satisfaction. This news means we can get our sleeves rolled up to work with local Levy paying employers to deliver their Apprenticeship needs”.
