KPMG and The Open University launch joint apprenticeship service


KPMG and The Open University (OU) are joining forces to launch an apprenticeship service that enables employers to identify and fulfil their future training needs, following the UK Government’s plan to introduce the Apprenticeship Levy.

The partnership has been designed to offer employers a high quality, scalable and accessible service and includes three initial higher level apprenticeships programmes. It will bring together KPMG’s expertise in workforce analysis and the OU’s track record in delivering apprenticeships and high quality online learning supported by expert tutors. 

The full-service scheme will help organisations to understand their future workforce needs, identify skills gaps and provide and manage training programmes through apprenticeships.  A central feature of the service is the extensive use of online learning, which will encourage greater access and opportunity to expand the scheme across businesses.

KPMG is the first of the ‘Big Four’ to make this move, following demand from organisations for advice on how to deliver large scale apprenticeship training to employees.
