What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprentices work alongside other staff members and earn a wage whilst gaining job-specific skills. Depending on the qualification, apprenticeships are delivered through a mix of on-the-job training, self-study, classroom learning or dedicated masterclasses. They allow apprentices to build the skills and knowledge needed in their chosen career that will also lead to nationally recognised qualifications.

As an award winning apprenticeship provider, much of our training can be delivered as an apprenticeship, meaning you can cover the costs of staff development using your levy or Government funding (non levy-payers pay just 5% of apprenticeship training costs).

Apprenticeships offer real, measurable business benefits for employers. Whether recruiting new talent into your organisation or investing in your existing workforce, they are proven to increase productivity, improve motivation and offer real succession planning.

Our training solutions will help you improve the skills of your workforce, developing stronger employees whilst providing your team with the opportunity to learn and develop. 

The benefits of apprenticeships:

  • Increased staff retention and motivation
  • Increased productivity
  • Directly address any skills gaps within your organisation
  • Grow your team whilst keeping your costs down
  • Nationally recognised qualifications in your industry
