A strategic approach

Point at the screen

We can work with you to identify your current and future organisational challenges, then optimise your use of the Apprenticeship Levy to implement change.

Our Apprenticeship programmes benefit from the same practical and collaborative approach that businesses have come to expect from Henley Business School. Work-based projects enable apprentices to directly apply their learning to real challenges within your organisation.


The Levy can be complex and there are a number of rules to understand - however, the Henley team is here to help you understand the Apprenticeship Levy and its application.

We support our clients in two ways:

1. Support for the business

As part of our relationship with each client, we undertake a scoping exercise of the organisation.

We then create the business's Levy Plan, taking current training demands and strategic objectives into consideration. The plan covers recommendations for all programmes fundable via the Levy, not just the ones delivered by Henley Business School. We will identify the correct Standards to employ, and create a budget to ensure that the Levy Plan maximises funds and meets our client’s strategic objectives.

2. Support for learners

We recognise that going back to learning after a long period can be daunting. Each learner is assigned an Apprenticeship Tutor to support them through the programme, whether face-to-face, over the phone or via email/video conferencing.
