How does it work?


Step 1: We work with you to recruit an apprentice. We’ll advertise your vacancy, conduct the initial screening and telephone interviews and set work-related challenges at no extra cost, before passing promising candidates to you for interview. Candidates range from school and college leavers to graduates to those with some work experience under their belt.

Step 2: You interview a selection of candidates and make the hiring decision. The apprentice is employed by you and works within your business. They spend 20% of their time (approx. 1 day per week) on off-the-job training, working towards their Level 3 qualification.

Step 3: Over 12-18 months, we coach your apprentice through their exams and coursework and help them apply their new knowledge and skills in the workplace. This coaching can be delivered at one of our training venues, online or at your premises.

Step 4: As your apprentice develops their skills, they start adding huge value to your team and bring a fresh perspective to business challenges.

Step 5: Your apprentice undertakes End Point Assessment and successfully completes their apprenticeship.

How much does it cost?


If your business has an annual payroll bill of more than £3m you will already be paying the apprenticeship levy. This money can be used to fund apprenticeship training and any money not spent reverts to the government.

Once your levy fund has been spent, or if you have a PAYE bill of less than £3m, the government pays 95% of the apprenticeship cost and you pay the remaining 5%. For the Digital Marketer standard this means the maximum you will be asked to pay is £550 per apprentice towards the cost of their training.

The biggest cost to hiring an apprentice is their salary. Although minimum wage for apprentices is £4.15 per hour, we’d recommend a salary of £12,000 to £18,000 per annum for a Digital Marketer to attract the right people to your role.

You can also take advantage of a £1,000 incentive payment from the government if your apprentice is aged 16-18 or 19-24 with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan.

On top of this, the government has introduced Covid response incentives, valid for starts until 31st January 2021. This entitles you to an additional £2,000 when you employ an apprentice aged 16-24 or £1,500 if the apprentice is over 25.

DN About

About Digital Native.


We are Digital Native. The digital apprenticeship provider dedicated exclusively to delivering bespoke tech apprenticeships in data, software, digital marketing and IT disciplines.

We work with organisations to make our digital apprenticeship programmes deliver accelerated pathways that help close the identified skills gaps and give apprentices the skills than they need, the support to develop and a focus on their future.

We know that in today’s world, everyone can find a course online from tech vendors and learning institutions delivering lectures and materials, but the digital skills gap is still widening year on year.  Our experience tells us that courses don’t make better people and that knowledge is not the same as skills.

Our fantastic coaches are all experienced, industry professionals. Their role is to support the apprentice to engage with our learning materials, share their extensive experience, help the apprentice to understand and reflect on what they’ve learnt but most importantly place this is a work context and understand how they can apply this knowledge and become a better employee. (Our coaches are our best asset, but don’t take our word for it – hear it from apprentices on our News page)

Our digital apprenticeships provide off and on the job training and qualifications to address the most commonly identified skills gaps in CIOs digital strategies and enable apprentices to access careers such as:

  • Data Analyst
  • Data Scientist
  • Software Developer
  • Software Tester
  • Digital Marketer
  • Infrastructure technician

Whether you’re a student looking for post A level or degree employment options, an SME fixing a digital skills gap or a blue-chip needing to upskill a specific team we can help.

We work with you to identify what you want from the apprenticeship, advise and hand pick the best and most relevant courses for you to study and also give you access to resources outside of your chosen apprenticeship to further expand your skills.

Our coaches work equally with apprentices and employers to ensure that by the time the apprentice completes their programme your business has filled a skills gap with a valuable, up-skilled professional.

We can deliver across the UK. Currently we have delivery venues in Aylesbury where we can support employers from Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, London and Milton Keynes. Our Birmingham venue covers the Midlands in addition to our Peterborough venue working with employers in the East of England.

We can also deliver on employers premises outside of these areas so do get in touch and let us know what you need.

Our vision.


At Digital Native we only deliver the new Apprenticeship Standards as we believe these offer the best start to you tech career.

Each standard maps closely to job roles and offers a great mix of knowledge, vendor certificates from Microsoft, CompTIA and Cisco and experience. Each standard also provides an opportunity to progress onto a degree apprenticeship.

The Apprenticeship Levy.


Introduced in May 2017, The Apprenticeship Levy is a 0.5% payroll tax that can only be used on approved apprenticeship training. At Digital Native, we are specialist providers offering apprentices of all ages access to expert industry knowledge fortified by a thorough understanding of the tech industry. This knowledge allows us to take apprentices from Level 2 (equivalent to GCSE), all the way to Level 7 (Masters Degree). You can even do an MBA as an apprentice!

If your business has an annual payroll bill of more than £3m then you will already be paying the apprenticeship levy.

The private sector pays 0.5% of it’s annual payroll into the levy fund with the public sector paying 3%.

This money can only be used to fund approved apprenticeship training and any money not spent reverts to the government.

You report and pay your apprenticeship levy directly to HMRC through the PAYE process.

Firstly, you need to register with the service.

From there, it’s a simple process to nominate your chosen apprenticeship provider, enter details of the apprentice you wish to train and add additional details such as length of programme and price.

Once the apprenticeship training you’ve bought has started, monthly payments will be taken from your service account and sent to the provider.

Once your levy fund has been spent, the government pays 90% of the apprenticeship cost and you only pay the remaining 10%.
