New website is here!

Hello and welcome to the newly redesigned KSA website

After weeks of planning, we are delighted to welcome you to our new website. We have also took this time to update our brand logo, which can be seen at the top of this page as well as bringing a new look to the overall website. Please see below for some of our highlighted changes, or feel free to visit our homepage and take a look around.

With apprenticeship frameworks now coming to an end with the move to apprenticeship standards, we wanted to ensure that our clients and stakeholders have the most up to date information on our current offering which can be found here


In order to keep all of our stakeholders up to date with Covid-19 and the challenges it brings, we have added a dedicated page here which links to the latest government guidance on apprenticeship provision, as well as the redundancy support service for apprentices.

As part of the the response to Covid-19 and its ongoing impact on employment, we have now seen the launch of the Government Apprenticeship Incentive.

From August 2020 to January 2021, all businesses will receive a financial incentive for any new employee coming into the business as an apprentice.

The government will now pay £2,000 towards apprentices aged 16-24 and £1,500 for those over 25. This is on top of the existing £1,000 incentive already provided for 16-18 year-olds.

In regards to the effect Covid-19 has had on our delivery. KSA have always understood that not all businesses are same, especially since the arrival of Covid-19 and the difficulties that come with it.

KSA will work with you to develop & design a tailored apprenticeship programme, with a delivery model that works flexibly around your Covid-19 impacted work practices and current demands.

Talk to one our team today to see how we can support your business to become leaner and make savings by utilising our business improvement focused apprenticeships as a force for change. Contact us here or call the number at the bottom of the page to start the conversation.

Apprenticeships have moved on from what they used to be and are an exciting option for both apprentice and employer. You can now employ apprentices at all different levels, from school leavers to people that want to further their careers or change career direction completely.
