Intertrain for Employers

What can we do for you?

Our proven methods are an excellent way for candidates to gain knowledge, experience and skills required to contribute to your existing workforce. We are passionate about the value apprentices can bring to your business through innovative thinking and fresh ideas for everyday business solutions.

Recruitment Service:

We offer a full apprenticeship recruitment service from advertising your vacancies, screening potential applicants to supplying you with the best candidates to interview.

Support and Guidance:

We specialise in guiding and supporting you through the process of recruiting an apprentice, helping you to understand how the funding works and what is expected during the training period.

On the Job Training:

Our training will be delivered in your workplace where an assessor will meet with the candidate on a monthly basis, meaning your apprentice won’t need to travel or take time off work, minimising the impact on your business.

Online learning Platform:

Intertrain use an Eportfolio system which is an online learning platform for all learners. It can be accessed from anywhere and allows apprentices to capture a wide range of evidence, developing their practical skills and recording their progression. 

Hiring an apprentice is a great way to help businesses grown their own by developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.

Levy Payers:

You will need to pay the apprenticeship levy if you are an employer, in any sector, with a pay bill of more than £3 million each year. For the purpose of the levy, an ‘employer’ is someone who is a secondary contributor, with liability to pay Class 1 secondary National Insurance contributions (NICs) for their employees. The levy will be charged at a rate of 0.5% of your annual pay bill. You will have a levy allowance of £15,000 per year to offset against the levy you must pay. This means you will only pay the levy if your pay bill exceeds £3 million in a given year.

Co-investment:

Employers who do not pay the levy, or are levy payers and run out of funds in the digital account, will benefit from significant government funding to support your commitment to apprenticeships. You will also have to make a financial contribution and we call this ‘co-investment’. An employer cash contribution towards the costs of training is an essential part of apprenticeship reforms, designed to increase quality and employer engagement.

What do our trainees think

PTS Practical Event, Warrington

The trainer had a very thorough knowledge of the subject matter, and was able to back that up with relevant real life examples. Craig was flexible in his approach and willing to go deeper into particular areas if required to ensure understanding. The facilities are good, and the indoor track training area is particularly impressive.

Martin Smith, Carillion Construction Ltd
OLEC 2, Doncaster

Very well constructed and delivered, outstanding performance on the trainer's part, both in the classroom and out on the track. I would recommend Archie McNeill to anyone who wishes to learn about overheads - a terrific experience.
