Walker Construction offers Apprenticeship Levy transfer to support local businesses

Walker Construction, based in Kent, has announced a new initiative to support South East businesses through the transfer of up to 50% of its Apprenticeship Levy fund. 

The program provides an opportunity for eligible businesses to receive funding for apprenticeship training, thereby fostering skill development and growth within the community.

As a levy-paying employer, Walker Construction is committed to investing in the future workforce. By transferring a portion of its Apprenticeship Levy, the company aims to empower other businesses to train apprentices, enhance their skills and contribute to their professional development, without bearing the full financial burden.

Pamela Branchett, HR & ESG manager at Walker Construction, said: “We believe in the power of apprenticeships to transform careers and drive business success. By sharing our levy funds, we can help other businesses develop talented individuals who will contribute to our industry’s growth and innovation.”

Eligible businesses can receive up to 50% of their apprenticeship training costs from Walker Construction’s levy fund.

Transferring levy funds comes with many benefits. It is an easy way to support other businesses, charities or sectors. You are helping boost the number of apprenticeships across the UK, providing opportunities for young people or existing employees. 

The transfer can be used for a variety of apprenticeship programs. In this instance, Walker Construction would like to attract businesses/voluntary organisations/individuals from construction, engineering, education, business, admin and finance within the South East and Midland area.
