“Upskilling the B2B sales workforce in SMEs and encouraging more young people to retrain in B2B selling will speed economic recovery and job creation…There is a shortage of sales and management skills.”

Funded development with Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are training programmes that combine real work with learning and qualifications. As a national learning provider we work with our clients and learners across the country delivering blended learning programmes. The Apprenticeship programme means that employers are contributing 0.5% of payroll over £3 million into a levy pot. This can only be spent on training and development. Apprenticeship programmes are the ideal way to develop your new recruits and existing staff. Listen to some of our apprentices talk about what they’ve learnt.

What will levy funded development feel like?

The learning pathway is a rich mix of digital, self-study, coaching, classroom, assignments and virtual learning. Your learners can train at home as well as alongside business people from other organizations or, as part of sessions specific to your company. The engagement levels are high and geared toward leading-edge learning theory.

“We started talking to Mercuri about the delivery of the Level 4 Sales Executive apprenticeship early in 2019. From the outset we have been impressed with their professionalism.” 

Anne Ashworth, Pearson
