Jigsaw Training appointed by ABM UK as levy partner

Facilities management business ABM UK and its sister company OmniServ have today announced a partnership with Jigsaw Training as its total solution provider for their Apprenticeship Levy programme.

Specialist provider Jigsaw Training will work with the businesses to deliver training in areas including facilities management, leadership and management.

The three-year contract will involve between 200 and 250 apprentices, including new recruits and existing employees in new roles.

The apprentices will work towards intermediate, advanced and higher apprenticeship over a 12-24-month period.

Jigsaw Training will train the apprentices and guide them through their qualifications, they will also provide the ongoing assessment of knowledge and competence gained against the national occupational and awarding organisation standards and finally contract with an independent end point assessment organisation for the final assessment with each apprentice.

The Apprenticeship Levy will be introduced next month and employers with a UK pay bill of over £3m from both the private and public sectors will be required to pay 0.5% of that into a levy. Those employers can then access that levy through a digital account to use for the development of apprentices.

Andy Donnell, group managing director of ABM UK, said: “We see the Apprenticeship Levy as a great opportunity to develop our people, and we believe that Jigsaw Training can help us achieve this. Implementing a new scheme will of course take investment from a financial and resource perspective; but with training already such a big part of ABM UK’s company culture, the demands of the Apprenticeship Levy feel like a natural extension to what we’re already providing for our staff.

“Jigsaw Training left us in no doubt that it has the necessary experience and resources to offer our staff the very best training, and we very much look forward to working closely with them over the coming years.”

James Blackhurst, managing director of Jigsaw Training, said: “It is great to see the commitment from ABM UK to their apprentices and we’re excited to be working with them.

“The Apprenticeship Levy is just around the corner and as a large employer ABM UK is dedicated to helping their apprentices realise their potential.”

ABM UK provides facility service solutions across 1,500 locations in the UK, including shopping centres, commercial buildings and airports. OmniServ provides services, including security, portering and baggage handling, at 15 UK airports.

Jigsaw Training is a total training solutions company providing the complete package from training needs analysis through to the design, administration, delivery, management and evaluation of all programmes.
