The Apprenticeship Levy

If you have a payroll of under £3m, you are not required to pay the Apprenticeship Levy. You will share the cost of training and assessing your apprentices with the government – this is called ‘co-investment’. Your share will depend on the size of your organisation and circumstances of the apprentice: Read further guidance on the government levy.

Medway Council logo

Working with Canterbury Christ Church University has benefitted Medway Council and its staff in many ways. Their willingness to listen to the employer and integrate a more tailored focus to their programme was refreshing and exciting. Their teaching staff are committed and offer innovative ideas and solutions to bring out the best from the learner.

We are extremely happy with our choice and look forward to continuing our association in the future.

Medway Council Apprenticeship

Christ Church has developed a highly flexible, relevant and responsive Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) which is helping Medway Council to shape its current and future workforce.

The first of Medway Council’s Chartered Manager Degree apprentices joined the Christ Church programme in 2018 alongside CMDA apprentices from other Kent and Medway organisations. They will continue to benefit from networking, problem-solving and an expert learning environment for the next four years, as further cohorts join the successful programme in the University’s Business School.

Medway Council is also working with us to deliver a MBA Collaborative Leadership Apprenticeship for its senior leaders over the next four years.

Our business-focused apprenticeships have many strengths which will appeal to employers, including the flexibility to deliver from our campuses in Canterbury and Medway, or on location at an employer’s premises.
