Transform Advisor (SME Apprenticeship Levy Transfer) – East Sussex (Freelance Contract)

The Sussex Council of Training Providers is looking for two experienced apprenticeships/employer engagement professionals to deliver our new Transform programme in East Sussex. The programme, part funded by the European Social Fund (ESF), and led by East Sussex County Council, aims to raise the profile of apprenticeships and skills training in East Sussex amongst SMEs, and will support SMEs to access government incentives and unspent Levy funds to pay for apprenticeship training.

The Transform Advisers will be responsible for engaging employers into the programme, and will be providing a minimum of 150 SMEs with impartial advice on skills training and apprenticeships over 2 years, signposting to appropriate training provision, and support access to unspent Levy funds from Levy payers such as East Sussex County Council.  The Advisers will also deliver training to business support organisations, work closely with the East Sussex Growth Hub, and support our annual apprenticeship roadshow events which bring together employers, training providers and would-be apprentices.

This is an exciting project that will make a significant difference to the apprenticeship landscape and skills support for SMEs in East Sussex. For full details, see the Transform project page on this website.
