Hampshire County Council Apprenticeship Programme

Opportunities for career-seekers, employees and employers at Hampshire County Council and beyond

Apprenticeships are an integral part of Hampshire County Council’s workforce strategy that enable us to ensure employees have the necessary skills and capability to perform their current and future roles, raise aspirations, and attract and retain talent to the workforce. Our aim is to provide high-quality apprenticeship opportunities, increase participation, drive high completion rates, and ensure our employees and the organisation benefit from new learning and skills developed in the workplace. We achieve this by proactively identifying apprenticeship opportunities, engaging with managers and employees, and raising awareness through communication activities.

Hampshire County Council’s aim is to maximise the availability of apprenticeship levy funding to invest in our workforce so we can continue to provide the best support to the people of Hampshire and the communities we serve.

The Apprenticeship Levy

The apprenticeship levy requires all employers within the UK, with an annual pay bill over £3 million to invest in apprenticeships. Hampshire County Council contributes 0.5% of our payroll into the Government levy for apprenticeships. The funds are then made available in a digital account that Hampshire County Council can access to pay for apprenticeship training and assessment.

The levy provides employers with the opportunity to develop apprenticeship programmes for new and existing employees.
