Apprentice Ollie Roberts, from Little Tap Restaurant and Bar.

Elior is set to serve up a real treat after gifting a fantastic £100,000 in unused apprenticeship levy funds to our £500k in 100 days campaign. 

The leading catering and hospitality business is the first employer to join our apprenticeship campaign which is encouraging large organisations to gift unused apprenticeship levy funds for smaller businesses to access apprenticeship training.

SME Funding


By gifting an amazing £100k to the Education, Health, Social Care and Hospitality sectors, Elior is helping to provide apprenticeship training opportunities for smaller organisations in the care sector, funds which could provide apprenticeship training for a total of 33 Adult Care Workers.

This gift is not only helping to strengthen the future of smaller organisations but also provide progression and upskilling opportunities for their workforce. The amount is part of a wider commitment to gift £480,000 gift of unused apprenticeship levy funds to help boost small and medium businesses over the next three years.  

Beckie Holmes, Levy Gifting Manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Elior have come on board as our first gifting partner of our campaign. This will make a real and lasting difference to so many individuals and businesses who will now be access to secure future success through apprenticeship training.”

Justin Johnson, HR Director, Elior UK, said: "We are proud to be the first large employer to gift to Total People’s campaign and we look forward to providing many opportunities to businesses and individuals within our chosen sectors. We are acutely aware of the challenges these sectors have overcome over the last few years, so we are delighted to play our part by investing in their regeneration.

We’ve found the entire process of gifting our funds extremely straight forward so we would encourage other levy paying organisations to consider how they might potentially get involved and help make a difference too.

Ollie Roberts, Assistant Manager at Little Tap Restaurant and Bar, is one of the first to benefit from this generous gift after accessing Elior's funds to start his Level 3 Supervisor Apprenticeship.

He said: "My message to Elior is that I am grateful for their ambitious aims for young people in business and investing in the future of hospitality after such a difficult period."
