Over the past few years Aurelia Training have had a number of successful Levy transfers from 2 main companies to smaller employers, especially charity organisations within the care sector. Their most recent Levy transfer was for one of their longest employers People In Action for 20 Care Level 2 apprenticeships and they have worked with Aurelia Training since 2008. Over this time Aurelia training have provided a variety of Apprenticeships and bespoke training.
People in Action says:
“Over the past few months, we looked at giving all staff who currently held at least a Level 2 diploma in Care a pay rise, with the option for those without the level 2 to put themselves forward for the Level 2 Apprenticeship. As you can imagine we had a high number of staff interested. I approached Aurelia to see what my options were in signing up approx. 20 staff on to the Care L2 apprenticeship as soon as possible, as we would ideally need them in a number of groups at different starting points due to the volume.
After a call with the team at Aurelia, they suggested looking at a possible Levy Transfer from a nationwide Levy company, where we could then look at starting them all at the same time, as it was hard to decide who deserved to be put on the course first. Within a few days Aurelia had confirmed the Levy Transfer and we were booking in dates for an all-day induction/start of the apprenticeship. We split them in to 3 groups over 2 days and as expected all the staff who attended were keen and ready to go.”
