Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership

Published on Monday, 03 March 2014

Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership have adopted Evolutive to manage and monitor two new employment initiative projects, The Apprenticeship Hub and Step Up – Phase 2.

Apprenticeship Hub
The Leicester Apprenticeship Grant scheme aims to assist employers new to apprenticeships and those employers who have not been in a financial position within the last 12 months to commit to recruiting an apprentice.

Employers in Leicester can recruit an apprentice aged 18-24 and receive financial support providing they meet the eligibility criteria. The grant is administered by Leicester City Council with a value of up to £1,500. Upon 26 weeks of employment employers will be eligible to receive the grant.

Alcium have developed both the online expression of interest and full application forms that are dynamically linked to the Evolutive system. Evolutive is used by LLEP to monitor the entire process including the volume of apprenticeships created and the amount of funding that has been allocated against the pre-set targets.

Step Up – Phase 2
The Step Up project is an employment initiative by Leicester council to encourage employers to provide paid work placements for unemployed people aged 18-24. Step up phase 2 aims to create over 200 new paid job opportunities for Leicester city residents aged 18-24 who have been claiming Job-Seekers Allowance (JSA) or Employment Support Allowance (ESA) for a minimum of 6 months. Local employers are encouraged to create the additional jobs via the access to grants towards employee wage costs.

Leicester have employed Evolutive to work in a very similar way to the Apprenticeship Hub with the system being used to manage, monitor and report on the entire funding project.
