Investors in People (IiP) has launched a new “We invest in Apprentices”, which uses a structured assessment programme to help organisations create and deliver successful Apprenticeship Programmes.
As a partner of IiP, The 5% Club is pleased to announce that our Members qualify for a 13% discount against the cost of accreditation through this scheme, which delivers the following benefits:
- Attract better talent. Good apprentices want to work for good employers.
- Stand out from other apprentice employers. Raise your profile and reputation by showing you are ahead of other organisations.
- Accreditation is valid for three years.
- Online survey and interviews to gather valuable information from your apprentices.
- Quantitative and qualitative insights help inform your strategy and implement it better.
- Automatic entry in the Investors in People Awards where we celebrate the best and the boldest organisations, rewarding their great work.
- An action plan designed to support the evolution of your strategy.
- Silver, gold and platinum award levels, valid for three years.
- 12 and 24-month check-ins with your practitioner to ensure continuous development.
Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills, The Rt Hon Gillian Keegan MP, is a strong advocate for the Scheme, stating:
“Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to learn while you earn, opening up new and exciting careers paths. They play a vital role in our Plan for Jobs, helping to protect and create jobs as we build back better after the pandemic. I encourage every organisation that offers apprenticeships to gain We invest in Apprentices accreditation”.
More information on the We invest in Apprentices Scheme is available on the IIP website.
