Need help with your Apprenticeships, Levy or's as easy as ABC...



Trudy Burrows, the founder, set up Ashley Business Consultants Ltd (ABC) in March 2016, bringing together a number of senior individuals to provide a wide range of Consulting services in the education and apprenticeship area.

As well as being set up to provide consulting services to a wide range of employers, colleges and universities, ABC  secured a licence on the register of apprenticeship providers (RoATP) which allows the provision of Levy and Non-Ley provision.


Ideally placed, having dealt at the most senior of levels in the education sector, Trudy and her team launched a level 3 Business Administration and Level 3 Leader Supervisor Apprenticeship training programme in July 2018 with a number of learners from a Levy paying brand.

If you're a college, university or employer and you need help navigating your way through accessing the apprenticeship levy or improving the quality of provision, ABC have the hands-on, pragmatic team to help you. 

For Trudy and the team, it really is as easy as ABC...

Apprenticeship Training


ABC are proud to have been awarded a licence to offer Apprenticeship Training for Levy Paying organisations in England and with strategic partners UK wide. We are committed to offering value for money, high quality learner experiences.


Our digital first approach provides a flexible range of teaching and learning – giving a broad learning experience incorporating a variety of learning platforms.

For Levy paying employers, 100% of the cost of the apprenticeship is covered by the funds held within their digital account.


For non-levy payers, 90% is covered by government funding and just 10% requires an employer co-investment. 

Team Leadership


Supervising, guiding and motivating…an effective Team Leader ensures staff are motivated to perform well and achieve team goals.


Closing the skills gap of this vital management tier is the key to building a high performance organisation and represents an important investment in developing tomorrow’s senior leaders.

Your apprentice will undergo a 13 month apprenticeship training programme at Level 3, during which the focus is on developing three key skills areas:


1 - Managing People - developing relationships; 

2 - Organisational performance – delivering results; 

3 - Personal effectiveness – managing self. 

Business Administration


Business administrators have highly transferable knowledge, skills and behaviours that can be applied in all sectors and supports progression towards many management roles.


They support and engage with different parts of the organisation with a focus on adding value, contributing to the efficiency of an organisation and are expected to deliver efficiently and with integrity. 

On completion of this 13 month programme, Business Administrator apprentices will demonstrate strong communication skills, a proactive approach to developing skills, showing initiative, managing priorities, problem-solving skills, decision-making and people management. 


Through the apprenticeship standard “knowledge, skills and behaviours” are developed over the course of the programme via scheduled learning interventions with employer mentors and sector specific expert trainers.
