Skills shortages are still one of the biggest threats to UK business. Apprenticeships can help businesses across all industries by offering a route to harness fresh talent. If you have trained staff with the right skills for the job, they can do a wider range of tasks and take on new responsibilities - this can help to reduce skill shortages, minimise staff turnover and workplace accidents, and increase productivity.
Taking on an apprentice is cost effective because your employee can learn while they are working, and the government contributes to the costs of learning.
Our job is to ensure that the training fits the apprentices’ personal requirements, offers the skills needed for the job and satisfies national standards. We are also able to offer them personal and learning support.
When you take on an apprentice we will appoint a training advisor who will work with you to make sure that the training is well planned. Once the apprentice begins, they will follow their progress (including regular three-way reviews with the employer and learner) and deal with any issues that may arise.
No; employers can take on as many apprentices as they can support.
Most of the time is spent in the workplace, with additional training taking place at college, either on a day or block release basis. More and more courses are delivered solely in the workplace, with college attendance only necessary for functional skills delivery.
We offer apprenticeships (Level 2), advanced apprenticeships (Level 3) and higher apprenticeships (Levels 4 and 5) and in a variety of subjects.
Our apprenticeships range from 1-4 years depending on the level and subject.
