Confused about the Apprenticeship Levy?


Hoople has developed a handy pocket-guide to the new Apprenticeship Levy. If you're unsure or confused about how it will affect you and your business, click here to download the leaflet. Alternatively, please call Dawn Haymonds or email her with your query.

Are you able to take on an apprentice this year?

We've had some excellent applications from this year's cohort of school and college leavers for apprenticeships in all areas: Health and Social Care; Business Administration; Childcare; Customer Service and Dental Nursing.

If you're interested in employing an apprentice in any of these fields, please contact Dawn Haymonds or Stacie Franklyn for further information. 

Funded team leadership and management training

We're also now taking applications for our Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) NVQ Level 2 and Level 3 Team Leadership and Management qualifications. 

If you have staff who are new or aspiring team leaders or are taking their first step into line management, please contact Sue Matthews for further information or download our information flier.

The ILM programmes are part of an apprenticeship framework and as such will qualify for partial or full funding.

Churchill Gardens update


We are pleased to advise that planning permission has been granted to develop additional parking at our Churchill Gardens Training Centre.
