The Chartered Insurance Institute has launched an apprenticeships guide to support firms wanting to take on apprentices.

The guide was launched today at the Apprenticeships in Financial Services Conference.

The CII said the guide provides step-by-step information on running an apprenticeship scheme in the wake of the new changes to the framework.

It also offers advice and tips for employers on how to implement a successful apprenticeship.

The guide covers the upcoming apprenticeship levy, due for implementation in April 2017, and the new trailblazer apprenticeships – sector-specific apprenticeships based on standards developed by employers in that sector.

CII chief executive Sandy Scott said: “The apprenticeship landscape is undergoing a lot of change with the introduction of trailblazers and, in 2017, the levy.

“It is important that employers are able to navigate this new world. The CII is committed to supporting firms across insurance and financial services, with the publication of our employers’ guide and the creation of our Apprenticeship Unit.”
