The Business Administration Apprenticeship for British Racing

British horseracing has today launched its first Business Administration apprenticeship, which provides support for racing’s employers to recruit an apprentice for an office-based role.

Delivered in partnership with Haddon Training with funding by the Racing Foundation, the Businesses Administration in Racing apprenticeship uses a combination of workplace development and off-site training to help the apprentice develop their skills, knowledge, and behaviours – all within a racing context.

There are many benefits to creating an apprenticeship opportunity, including attracting new talent to your business and the wider industry, or upskilling an existing employee.

The flyer – Information for Employers – provides further details about the apprenticeship scheme, eligibility criteria, and how to create a suitable job position within your organisation.

If you have any further questions or are keen to recruit a Business Administration apprentice, please contact our providers, Haddon Training, on 01672 519977 or via email at vacancies@haddontraining.co.uk.

Funding support for apprenticeships in British racing

British racing is also working with Co-op to help smaller employers with funding support for the training and assessment of apprentices.

Employers with an annual wage bill of more than £3 million are required by government to pay an apprenticeship levy, which can be invested into their own workforce through apprenticeship training, or transferred to other organisations.

The Co-op Levy Share enables larger organisations to share their unspent levy funds in a targeted way, supporting smaller employers with their training requirements.

If you are a smaller organisation looking for support with your apprenticeship costs, or a bigger employer keen to pledge some of your unused levy to support training elsewhere in the industry, the Co-op Levy Share may be able to help.

For more details visit the Co-op Levy Share website. For specific questions about the service, please contact info@cooplevyshare.co.uk.
