We have been working with Saffron Insurance for several years delivering their apprenticeships. Here is what Liam Botten; Head of People Development, at Saffron has to say about the benefits of apprenticeships:
“Over the last 18 months Saffron Insurance has embraced the apprenticeship levy by setting up our own in house academy scheme. As a result of this we have been able to employ 6 apprentices using WS Training as our provider. This has allowed us to set up a plan where the apprentices move around all of our departments and experience the training and different roles and workings of being an insurance broker. On top of this, the Levy has allowed us to get quality high standard and structured qualifications at reduced prices.
We have taken full advantage of the way the levy works by using up the pot of money we had to pay as a result of the scheme and then have only had to pay 10% of the fees with the government covering the rest. This has been such a positive, that we’re now looking to change our business module for staff recruitment and use the apprenticeship process to bring quality candidates into our business with no previous experience and train them to become a Saffron branded insurance broker.
The apprenticeship levy and our academy programme has also made a positive impact in the rest of the business, giving opportunities to experienced members of staff to help with training and mentoring which has aided some internal progression and a reduction in staff turnover. “
"WS Training fully supports our staff and we are confident they provide the necessary training that meets our business requirements."
