From April 2017 some of our customers will be liable to pay the new Apprenticeship Levy. This will mean in England the control of apprenticeship funding will be in the hands of the employers through the Digital Apprenticeship Service. Only businesses with a paybill of over £3 million will be effected by the levy and required to pay 0.5% of their paybill into a digital account to fund new apprenticeships.
Further details on the apprenticeship levy can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/apprenticeship-levy/apprenticeship-levy
As a trusted provider of training for some of the largest businesses in the UK, we have been asked by them to be involved in and apply to support them and their learners with the delivery and coordination of apprenticeships.
Apprenticeships with Mentor
We are currently offering Level 2 Mineral Processing Mobile and Static Plant Operator Apprenticeship programmes under the following titles:
- Aggregate Hard Rock Pathway
- Aggregate Sand and Gravel Pathway
- Asphalt Pathway
- Concrete Products Pathway
- Ready Mixed Concrete Pathway
The apprentice will acquire the skills, knowledge and behaviours that will enable them to work safely and effectively onsite. They will be able to operate either fixed and/or mobile plant equipment efficiently and safely to the highest possible standards, judge and reduce the effect of day-to-day operations on the environment, conduct routine and reactive maintenance checks and contribute effectively in the production of the quality product.
On successful completion, the apprentice will hold a Level 2 NVQ relevant to the pathway they take in addition to the Level 2 qualification.
