A new government Apprenticeship Levy is set to take hold from April this year and as a result, businesses across England are welcoming the need to adapt to meet government aims to boost productivity by investing in the labour force.

The UK’s leading provider of building solutions, Wienerberger, is focusing on broadening the skillset of staff and investing in apprentices to help realise a robust and enhanced learning and development strategy that feeds into Wienerberger’s overall business plan.

For Wienerberger, achieving a working life for staff that is both rewarding and fulfilling is a key objective. It believes that apprenticeships can be transformational for both the company and employees.

Aiming to see many more apprenticeship schemes across all areas of organisation, Wienerberger is hoping to see the age bracket of its apprentices broaden and apprenticeship schemes emerge as preferred way to promote development for individuals.

Wienerberger’s apprenticeship schemes are seeing strong results, with three of the current 18 apprentices set to qualify this year and an Apprentice of the Year award winner.
