Apprenticeships are an exciting option for the both apprentice and employer, and you can choose to hire someone new or upskill an existing employee using the scheme.
We're a recognised training provider of Apprenticeships with a Good Ofsted rating, varying in a range of industry sectors and Levels (2-5), proving an effective way to grow talent and devlop a motivated, skilled, and qualified workforce, bringing valuable skills into your business with the government's support.
We can also support your business in offering work experience to young people in the form of a Traineeship, which would prepare them for an Apprenticeship or a job in your business, if you wish to offer them employment.
As your chosen training provider, we'll manage the recruitment process on your behalf.
As an employer, you can adapt the apprentice's training according to the needs of your business. The apprentice is motivated to learn new skills and it is a great way to expand and upskill your workforce.
