What Ofsted say about us

Train Existing Staff

Impact Futures are focused on supporting employers to develop and deliver programmes to enhance the training and assessment opportunities for upskilling existing staff including senior management teams. We work alongside our clients to integrate apprenticeships as part of their internal professional development programmes (CPD).

We are able to support employers in maximising their levy spend and mapping internal training programmes to accredited qualifications.

“I have found Impact Futures to be extremely collaborative in all aspects of our work together to create our new Headstart and Foundations apprenticeship programmes. Our new programmes represented a significant change to our previous management courses and Impact Futures were instrumental in ensuring we delivered the new programmes with all of their changes, on time. They are always willing to explore different ways forward and very solutions focused. A pleasure to work and collaborate with.”

Hire New Talent

Hiring apprentices gives you the opportunity to nurture and develop entry level employees at the outset of their career. It’s your chance to mould the next generation of talent!

Impact Futures can help source your future talent, with trainees and apprentices ready to start work within your business. Our training is completed to the highest standards and we tailor our courses to fit your business, so your Apprentice will never be learning skills that aren’t applicable to their job.

The recruitment process


We run targeted campaigns attracting a broad range of candidates, all of whom must meet our high standards. The best are invited to a kick-off day.


Candidates take personality tests, undergo competency-based challenges, then complete a video profile highlighting their strengths.


Every candidate who successfully passes this stage is interviewed 1-on-1 by our talent team to ensure their ability is matched by a genuine enthusiasm for what you do!


We only put forward candidates we feel meet your values and have been matched with you. We want you to feel excited about the apprentice you hire.

National Insurance Contribution rebate for Apprentices

Did you know that you could claim back the National Insurance Contributions for your Apprentices depending on their age. If your business has hired an Apprentice since 6th April 2016, who is aged under 25 and is enrolled on an Apprenticeship, you can claim back your National Insurance Contributions for them. Depending on the salary of your Apprentice, this could amount to a significant saving. By changing your employer contribution category for Apprentices who meet this criteria, you will save your business money.

How Impact Futures Apprentice Service works


You decide you want an apprentice or put an existing young employee on an apprenticeship


You appoint Impact Futures to be your Government approved training provider


Impact Futures advertises the role(s) for you, filters applicants and provides you with a high quality short list


Impact Futures does all the off-the-job training, on the job assessment and associated accreditation, plus all the administrative paperwork


Government funds the training (100% for apprentices 18 and under, less for apprentices who are 19 or above, depending on the size of the firm)


You employ the apprentice, pay their salary (typically less than you would pay for a ‘normal’ entry level role) and invest in developing their on-the-job skills


At the end of the apprenticeship, you decide whether you want to keep them on as a full time employee; if ‘yes’, then you have a fantastic new permanent employee, loyal to you and trained to what you need; if ‘no’, then we help them find their next role and you can be satisfied that you’ve given that young person that all important first job
