Our brand new Sales Apprenticeship will allow you to enhance the skills of your sales team to maximize results for your business.
Education Partnership North East is working in partnership with New Results, one of the UK’s leading sales consultancies with over 10 years experience in training sales professionals.
The training has been developed to professionalise sales standards across a wide range of businesses and give sales professionals sales insight to benefit your business whilst gaining a professional qualification.
The training is available for your current sales workforce or new employees with little or no cost to the employer. Our Business Development Team can advise you on all aspects of funding available to your business.
The programme is 18 months, with a combination of face-to-face and online learning, and covers a range of sales roles from sales advisors, reps, business development field sales across all sectors in businesses of any size. The training will cover:
The minimum wage for an apprentice of any age is £4.15 per hour
If you employ an apprentice age 16 to 18, you will qualify for a £1,000 Age Incentive Grant (we will process the grant on your behalf and complete all the paperwork).
If you employ an apprentice age 16 to 18 and have less than 50 employees, the Government will pay the full cost of training your apprentice.
If you take on an Apprentice age 19 years or over, the Government will pay 95% of the cost of training your apprentice.
Apprenticeship funding can also be used to train your existing staff.
Not all apprentices are inexperienced. An apprentice can be someone who has previously studied at college and gained sector knowledge.
Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way for any business to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. There are many benefits to taking on an apprentice, including:
By tailoring the training to your business needs, you can grow your own talent and fill a skills gap efficiently.
An apprentice is motivated and eager to learn and can bring a new energy to your business, which will have a positive effect on existing staff.
An apprentice is making a contribution to your workplace while they are learning and gaining skills on-the-job. They can add value to your business as soon as they start.
If you’re looking for a school leaver with real potential, you can choose the right apprentice for your business from a pool of un-tapped talent.
Apprenticeships are a great way to motivate your existing staff by investing in their development and supporting them in gaining industry specific skills and national recognised qualifications.
Training apprentices can provide you with a skilled workforce for the future and can be much more cost-effective than hiring experienced staff.
Apprentices can bring fresh new ideas to your business and keep your business up-to-date with the latest techniques and technology - increasing your competitiveness, innovation and productivity.
Employing an apprentice can be a real asset to your existing workforce and can support them with their day-to-day workload.
