Paragon Customer Communications (PCC) is transfering a portion of its annual Apprenticeship Levy funds to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the UK, and is encouraging eligible companies to apply to access the funds.
As part of its Ignite apprenticeship scheme, PCC has made the funds available to provide valuable recruitment opportunities to businesses that otherwise may not have been able to benefit from the Government-backed levy.
PCC’s fund will see money distributed to SME businesses to pay for apprenticeship training and assessments for new and existing staff. Companies who meet the eligible criteria outlined by the Government can apply to Paragon at: https://www.paragon-cc.com/en-gb/inspiration/apply-apprenticeship-levy-funds-transfer
This latest commitment from PCC comes on the back of its UK-wide apprenticeship programme, Ignite, which focuses on developing key skills in print, digital marketing, warehouse management, litho print, print finishing and engineering.
Lee Bennett, learning and development business partner for PCC, said: “Paragon Customer Communications is a people-led organisation. It’s not just about taking care of our employees across every area of our business, but also supporting our partners and the wider SME community to create a progressive, supportive and healthy working environment for the next generation of professionals in a number of industries.”
