If you’d like to give all your staff the opportunity for professional development, but feel it’s impossible due to a lack of funding or time available to leave work, we’re here to help.
BeReady partners with leading universities to provide predominantly online, tailored for education courses that your staff can undertake alongside their full-time employment.
These apprenticeship degree courses enable learners to study in the workplace and at home to further their career goals.
For your university, meanwhile, they offer an excellent opportunity to improve business performance and are also useful for retention and reward for high fliers.
Funded by the Apprenticeship Levy
All courses are funded by the Apprenticeship Levy, so there is no cost involved for your university or learner.
The many benefits of these tailored for education courses include:
- No cost – fully funded via the Apprenticeship Levy
- No added travel – your employees can study at work, at home or virtually anywhere using an innovative online platform
- Relevant – content blends pan-industry and education sector specific
- Immediately applicable – learning can be applied to the day-to-day work role.
More about Apprenticeship Levy-funded training
The Apprenticeship Levy provides funding for training and development for any employee aged 16 to 65, from foundation courses through to MBAs.
Research shows that over £2 billion of the Apprenticeship Levy is unspent. The main reason for this underspend is that employers simply aren’t aware of the opportunities available, either locally or further afield.
With a BeReady Apprenticeship Levy-funded programme, delivered through BeReady’s partnerships with leading UK universities, you can support current employees on their personal development journey.
You’ll enjoy access to an upskilled workforce when you need it, as well as being able to reward key staff and boost morale, staff retention levels and business performance.
Best business practice brought to your university
Many of the challenges that university staff are presented with are faced by their peers in other professions and sectors. We therefore provide evidence-based learning content founded on research and learning from all industries.
This enables education professionals to benefit from the broad experience of other sectors about universal subjects, including people management, communication and finance.
Contextualised content immediately applicable
Alongside the theory, bespoke programmes have been developed by education experts with a wealth of experience of working in the sector.
With their expert guidance, course content has been made directly relevant and immediately applicable to your educational and business setting. For busy professionals this is crucial. Through carefully tailored case studies, exercises and projects, new knowledge and skills can be put into immediate practice.
