Elmbridge Apprenticeship levy pledge

Small and medium sized businesses in the borough can benefit from a skills boost with extra support to provide free training through apprenticeships. 

The transfer to transform programme helps secure unutilised apprenticeship levy funds to support SMEs across Surrey.

Businesses in the borough can apply now for funding to cover 100% of apprenticeship training costs, allowing them to take on and train new staff, upskill an existing member of staff and open up new opportunities for residents.

Elmbridge has pledged to share some of our apprenticeship levy to help SMEs across the borough. The pledge will support up to four new apprentices each year and is available to businesses operating in the borough that are not currently subject to the Government’s Apprenticeship Levy. 

Organisations from across Surrey have joined us in making the pledge so please visit the Surrey Apprenticeship Hub below to apply and see how your business could benefit from national and local apprenticeship support.

Take the Transfer to Transform pledge

Transfer to Transform provides the chance for local businesses to help support each other through this crisis as our economy recovers. With all businesses keeping a careful watch on their bottom line, the campaign is not asking for cash or charity, but rather for businesses to pledge some of their unspent apprenticeship levy funding to support SMEs in the region.

By pledging unspent apprenticeship levy funds to Transfer to Transform, large businesses can cover the costs of apprenticeship training for SMEs, enabling them to take on and train new staff or upskill existing members of their team for the challenges we all face ahead.

If you are interested in finding out more please visit the Surrey Apprenticeship Hub.
