Eastleigh College has moved to online learning, as such campuses are closed to the vast majority of learners. The College remains open (including over the Easter holiday period) for 16-18 learners of key workers, and those learners with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). However, for both categories, learners are asked to stay at home where it is safe to do so. Consistent with public health advice, learners and staff are asked to follow public health guidance and the steps outlined via the 'read more' button.
Eastleigh College recently invited local businesses to attend a Breakfast Lunch at the College’s East Avenue restaurant, to learn more about how the Government’s new Apprenticeship Levy may affect their business. Attendees included B&Q, Carnival, and Southern Health NHS Trust.
Members of the Apprenticeship Experts team from the College, who currently work with hundreds of employers in the region, explained how the Levy is due to work, what will be expected of employers who contribute, and how business get the most of their levy contributions.
Attendees felt the event was very informative and helped them better understand how to move their business forward under the new legislation, due to be implemented in April 2017.
Renee Lima from Southern Health NHS Trust said, “It’s been really interesting finding out more about the Levy and how the College are going to work with it. Following today we will arrange a 1-2-1 with one of the team, to try and look at matrixes within the Trust and what Apprenticeships would best suit certain areas. Since we’re a big company, we will have to pay quite a lot into the Levy, so it’s figuring out how to make the most of it.”
The Apprenticeship Experts team also explained how they can help businesses throughout the process of employing an apprentice, from sourcing applicants to writing an employment contract.
