For Employers

Babcock’s experience of operating across a range of markets, combined with the scale and reputation of our business, means we are able to understand and meet our customers’ needs through the provision of cost effective apprenticeship, workforce development and apprentice recruitment solutions.

Customers tell us that their key drivers include the challenge of guaranteeing a qualified workforce that is proven to be compliant and competent; ensuring training is relevant, consistent and fit for purpose; and that all activity complies with their brand and values. At Babcock we understand that each organisation is unique: that’s why we offer an integrated approach to our apprenticeship programme delivery, ensuring our customers receive contextualised training solutions that meets their specific needs.

Across the UK Babcock deploys over 1,000 teaching, learning and assessment professionals and support staff who work with our customers to recruit, engage and train apprentices and trainees. In selecting Babcock our customers can be assured that we will:

  • Develop a partnership approach to supporting their business and apprentices.
  • Meet our commitment to continuous improvement through valuable innovations.
  • Develop our programmes in a seamless, integrated and brand focussed way.
  • Build great relationships that are built on trust.

The introduction of the apprentice levy in April 2017 has brought about some changes to apprenticeship qualifications, criteria and measurement. To find out more about the levy and apprenticeships today please click here.

Babcock works with the government bodies of each of the UK’s four nations to provide funded apprenticeships to employers and learners. In England, funding is provided by the Education and Skills Funding Agency; in Wales, the Welsh Government oversees apprenticeship funding; in Scotland, Babcock receives funding from Skills Development Scotland; and in Northern Ireland, Babcock holds contracts with the Department for the Economy for Northern Ireland.

Funding criteria can vary in the different nations of the UK and can be subject to change. To clarify the eligibility criteria in your area contact Babcock on 0800 731 8199 or text SKILLS to 81222 or email [email protected].
