In February 2018, we become an ESFA Registered Approved Apprenticeship Training Provider.
From April 2017, employers will contribute towards an Apprenticeship Levy. They will, therefore, be able to draw on funding to recruit and train apprentices to strengthen their workforce. We will support Justice Sector employers in providing quality apprenticeships to those they recruit.
As an approved Apprenticeship provider we will be focused on the Protective Services route. At present we are pleased to offer the following apprenticeships:
An employer group involving public, private and voluntary sector providers is currently working to design apprenticeship standards at Levels 3 and 6 for Rehabilitation and Probation Practitioners.
The Standard has been approved for both apprenticeships and work is progressing on the assessment plan. It is anticipated that these apprenticeships will be approved for delivery later this year. As an Approved Training Provider, LAURUS is looking forward to involvement in their delivery and invites early conversation with employers to determine delivery models that meet learner and business need and ensure that approval for delivery is translated into readiness.
