ILM Trailblazers – Apprenticeship Levy

Closed Group & Public Scheduled Programmes available at Levels 3 and 5

ILM_Logo

EQV are offering ILM Level 3 & 5 Trailblazer Public Scheduled Apprentice Programmes that we will be running at our head office in Leicestershire. This is an ideal opportunity to see how the levy works with a single candidate so they can experience the learning journey and feedback to the project sponsor.

  • Don’t miss out on the pot that is available
  • Apprenticeship training can be used for upskilling existing staff where new skills need to developed
  • Managing training falls under the framework

The programmes are also available for closed group delivery at customer sites nationwide. When running a closed group ILM Trailblazer Programme, for the knowledge element, staff members from the wider audience (i.e. not apprentice candidates) can also ‘piggyback’ from a skill development perspective.

The EQV ILM Trailblazer Experience

The programmes can be delivered either at your location or a public course event. Holding the programmes at your location means that other colleagues may attend for knowledge if appropriate allowing you to benefit from the delivery twice over! Our learning platform will be used to electronically capture all of the portfolio of evidence that the individuals can access and upload as they work through their own learning journey.

Admin and Invoicing and the Levy

Throughout the programme the invoicing happens on a monthly basis. The cost of the programme minus 20% which is kept back until the end of the qualification, is divided down by the monthly duration of the programme.
So for example for the Level 3 cost per person £5000 – minus 20% £1000 – leaving £4000. Programme duration – 18 months – £222.22 per month.
