Apprenticeship Levy Pledge
Following the success of our 2023 pledge, ISG is now supporting apprenticeships in construction, charity, hospitality, adult and youth care, digital, education, engineering, transportation and health for small and medium-sized businesses in the North of England.
In 2024, ISG is pledging £200,000 of funds to support new apprenticeships and provide opportunities for local communities, including employers who employ service leavers or ex-forces personnel in England. We also invite interest and partnership from colleges who support the development of skills for the construction industry and the built environment.
The ‘Apprenticeship Levy Pledge’ will support ISG in seeking to create a positive and sustainable legacy. In addition to addressing the skills shortages and upskilling opportunities within the built environment sector, the funding will target apprenticeships that unlock wider community potential and prosperity.
If you are a service leaver based in England, who is looking for financial support for an apprenticeship please connect with us.
If you are an interested college supporting the development of skills for the construction industry and the built environment, connect with us.
If you are an employer based in England, who is looking for financial support to train a new apprentice or an existing employee, then please follow these next steps.
- Visit the ‘Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education’ website to identify apprenticeship standards and local training providers.
- If you don’t currently have an apprenticeship service account, you will need to set one up to receive funding from ISG. More details can be found here.
- Once you have set up an account and identified the apprenticeship standard that your employee will study, please go to the UK government website and our pledge.
- Please apply for the transfer of funds, and provide details regarding the apprenticeship. For example, the reason for this apprenticeship, plus some details on your business and the impact this will have for you and the community.

In a small village like Corbridge, the right career opportunity can be a hard find. That was true for Amber, who had a passion unfulfilled, until now.
