Apply for free apprentice training with Portsmouth City Council

Is your business located in or around Portsmouth in Postcode PO1 - PO17?

Are you looking to either recruit a new apprentice or upskill an existing member of staff, that resides in Portsmouth?

Do you operate in one of the following sectors?

  • Engineering

  • Transport and Logistics
  • IT/Digital,
  • Social Care

Would you like to benefit from 100% fully funded training for your new apprentice?

If the answer is yes, to all of the above, then Portsmouth City Council invites you to apply for some limited Department for Education (DfE) Apprenticeship Levy Transfer funds.

If successful, the Department of Education will pay the apprenticeship training costs of an apprentice that you are looking to recruit/upskill.

Applications are currently being processed on a rolling basis. These will be referred via Portsmouth City Council to the DfE for consideration. The scheme is expected to close on 31st March 2020 or until funds run out. Early applications are encouraged
