Upskill your Developers using Apprenticeship Funding

This event has now ended.
11 March 2021 11:00 - 11:45

Upskill your developers using government funding. Find out how in our panel session with Northcoders, Covea Digital, Tote and Footasylum.

This session is aimed at anyone who is looking to optimise available funding to strengthen their organisation through diverse training and development; commitment to developing their people, wanting to grow their tech teams or a learner interested in getting signed up via their employer.

Apprenticeships are now more integral than ever before to how businesses of all sizes recruit and retain their employees. The Northcoders apprenticeships programme, UpSkill, has been created for businesses who need to plug gaps in their tech team and address common pain points such as onboarding, career development, and career progression. 

UpSkill is aimed at businesses that employ junior developers who would benefit from ongoing training as skills development. The programme further strengthens and supports internal learning and development strategies and can be funded using the Apprenticeship Levy so businesses do not have to shoulder the cost of training.

Following the most recent government announcement, now is the perfect time to enrol your junior developers on our UpSkill programme so that you can still take advantage of the Government’s incentive for hiring apprentices, which is worth up to £3,000 per apprentice up until the end of April.

Apprenticeships and government-funded training incentives can be tricky to navigate. To help you cut through the noise, our panel will be discussing their experience with:

  • Further Learning
  • Onboarding
  • Government Funding
  • Make Your Apprenticeship Levy work for you
  • The Technical Development Benefits
  • A Learner’s Journey
