As part of a new initiative HACT is offering Digital Apprenticeships tailor made for the Housing sector (a first of its kind!) and we only have 100 spaces in the first 2018 cohort.
You may have heard of the Apprenticeship levy, introduced last year, where an organisation that pays more than £3 million in wages every year, are to pay 0.5% of their pay bill into a fund. The government will add an extra 10% to spend on apprenticeship training. If you don’t use the funds on apprenticeships you will forfeit them.
Why not make use of these funds to close the digital skills gap in your business?
We have an expert team to help you access funds that the Government has set aside for the levy and we can help you strengthen your digital talent pool in the following areas:
- IT Infrastructure & Cyber Essentials
- Cyber Security
- IS Business Analysis
- Digital Marketing
We’ll support you to identify the suitable people inhouse, to upskill or redeploy from non-IT functions, or recruit from the market.
The first cohort gets going in March 2018, places are limited and offered first come first serve (note there is no limit on Apprentice placements per Housing Association).
Visit here to find out more and pledge your interest using the form. We’ll be in contact soon to see how we can help you.
