As proud advocates of apprenticeship schemes over the past 20 years, allpay Limited continue to encourage an environment of continual development in the workplace.
The apprenticeship scheme has evolved and diversified over the years meaning allpay now offer placements across the business from customer service and business administration to Finance and Technical teams.
Each year the National Apprenticeship Service launches National Apprenticeship Week celebrating the success apprenticeships bring to companies. This year allpay has celebrated diversity alongside the impact of apprenticeships on both individuals and employers.
Throughout National Apprenticeship Week, a handful of our apprentices visited local schools, to share their journey and offer guidance to students based on their experiences. Our social media platforms offered myth-busting advice associated with apprenticeships, on-site, we hosted a series of team-building challenges for our current and former apprentices promoting cross-department communication.
Former apprentice, Teejay Townsend, commented:
“Progressing down the apprenticeship route was a clear-cut decision for me. Apprenticeships offer the opportunity to gain experience in the workplace, which is important for personal development, alongside the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals within their field. These tools have enabled me to progress with my career, learning some invaluable skills along the way.”
HR Director, Steve Foulger commented on allpay’s apprenticeship scheme:
“We have great relationships with both local and national apprenticeship training providers and continue to promote the value that apprentices, and apprenticeship training adds to the allpay business and wider community.
Since the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy, allpay has been focused on reinvesting our pot internally to provide quality ‘on the job’ training. In this time, we have seen the uptake of apprenticeship training grow across allpay with employees engaged in the benefit of ‘on the job’ training, and the additional knowledge and skills which apprenticeships provide.
Now that our levy funds are fully invested, allpay is working with another local business who has spare funds, to continue to grow our apprenticeship training offer benefiting both allpay employees and the local community. This will break new ground for both companies and we will be sharing more shortly about this fantastic opportunity."
