Information for Employers

The IPPR London Progression Collaboration offers intense business support that will not just help employers of all sizes to use apprenticeship levy funding and fill skills gaps, but ultimately help Londoners into high-quality work.

The Offer

The London Progression Collaboration’s team of dedicated account managers offers employers:

  • End-to-end apprenticeship advice and support, tailored to the existing knowledge and capacity in each business
  • Levy-transfer brokerage and support, matching large employers with SMEs and supporting both parties throughout the process
  • Access to our knowledge transfer network to share best practice

Who is eligible to work with the London Progression Collaboration?

The London Progression Collaboration works with London employers of all sizes – levy payers and SMEs – in three key sectors: retail, hospitality, and construction.

To be considered a London employer, businesses must employ all or part of their workforce in London, regardless of the location of their headquarters. The initiative will support apprenticeships in London.

What is the cost to employers?

To access our support, nothing at all!

The business support which the London Progression Collaboration offers is free to London employers in the retail, hospitality and construction sectors. This is enabled by the funding the initiative receives from the Greater London Authority and from J.P Morgan.

Beyond the training costs covered by the Apprenticeship Levy, the costs of employing an apprentice (salary and associated admin) remain the responsibility of the employer.
