Boost your business with an Apprentice

Calling all employers - it's time to fire up your business. Apprentices are motivated, learn on the job and develop skills and knowledge directly relevant to your business. Trust us, we know. We employ our own apprentices and working with them has been a revelation.


What are apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes built around your business needs. The programmes are designed for both new and existing employees and learning takes place on the job. Our assessors work with employers and regularly visit apprentices on the job to complete assessments and monitor progress.

Apprentices of all ages have made an active choice to learn and are committed to a specific career. The programme is an effective way of training the kind of employees your business needs.                               

Depending on your business, training can take between one and four years to complete, after which you’ll have a fully trained and motivated member of staff who has developed their skills around your business priorities. These qualifications include industry specific technical certificates as well as essential skills in communications, English, maths and IT.
