Why Levy Funded Sales Development?
The government want to give me money for training?
Are you sure? Sounds too good to be true…
Ah, yes, it’s MY MONEY so they aren’t giving me anything at all, are they? So why do it?
That is the question...Why utilize your levy contribution?
Well, whatever you think of the way it works there is no doubt that the aim of the apprenticeship scheme is spot on: It provides the structure for developing the talented employees and managers of the future. So as well as filling a short term gap it actually supports the long term viability of the employer.
The levy is a way of employers committing to their own future, funding the development of knowledge and skills that will enable their organization to thrive. By utilizing the funds that the levy provides these organizations can create a competitive advantage in the market for new talent. They can also publicly demonstrate their willingness to support the long terms needs of their customers.
Business to Business Sales Apprenticeships
The new B2B sales apprenticeship, which the Association of Professional Sales is working on with companies such as Mercuri, is a tangible step in the journey to “professionalize” the sales industry. It will equip your new hires and existing people with the know how to make a real difference in your market. It is a direct investment in the people that your company relies on for its long term future. That’s why it’s worth doing.
The money is there: it can’t be used for anything other than training. So why not get a return from an investment you have to make anyway?
