The team @Realise were heavily involved in the development of the Standard for the Event Assistant Apprenticeship Programme. It therefore made perfect sense for us to develop a bespoke learning journey and lead the way in creating an exciting opportunity for new talent to enter the vibrant world of events.
Other training providers have since entered the marketplace but none have come close to the quality of delivery and outstanding results that we have achieved… see below.
We also monitor the diversity of the apprentices on our programme and you can also see the current statistics below…
Other include Asian and non-UK nationals allowed to live and work in the UK

Skills Funding Agency
Have you heard of the Apprenticeship Levy? Here are a few facts.
The Apprenticeship Levy is the mechanism that the Government has deployed to pay for the training element of an Apprenticeship. All employers with an annual payroll of £3 million or over, pay via PAYE into a digital wallet and then utilise these funds to offer training to their staff and pay to an approved training provider. Those with a payroll of under £3 million do not have to do this and can get funding help from the Government to pay the training provider.
Employers will not pay the first £15,000 of the Levy, which effectively means that the Levy will only be payable on payrolls in excess of £3million per year.. see examples below:
How It Works:
250 UK based employees
Wage bill: 250 x £20,000 – £5,000,000
Levy Sum: 0.5% x £5,000,000 = £25,000
Allowance: £25,000 – £15,000 = £10,000 annual Levy Payment
150 UK based employees
Wage bill: 150 x £20,000 – £3,000,000
Levy Sum: 0.5% x £3,000,000 = £15,000
Allowance: £15,000 – £15,000 = £0 annual Levy Payment
100 UK Based employees
Wage bill: 100 x £20,000 – £2,000,000
Levy Sum: 0.5% x £2,000,000 = £10,000
Allowance: £10,000 – £15,000 = £0 annual Levy Payment
