How can I get involved with apprenticeships?
If you are interested in improving your business through apprenticeship training, there are two ways in which you can do this:

Option 1 – Recruit a new apprentice to your team 
If you’re looking to add an apprentice to your team we can help you from start to finish. From writing a vacancy and recruiting the perfect apprentice right through to delivering quality training and support throughout the apprenticeship, we’ll make sure you and your apprentice feel right at home with our friendly team.

 Option 2 – Enrol an existing staff member on an apprenticeship-training programme 

Should you wish to improve your existing staff through formal qualifications and training, we’ve got that covered too. Many employers enrol existing staff onto apprenticeship programmes so they can develop new skills and take on additional responsibilities within the company. For example, an existing Administrator could enrol on an Accountancy course, enabling them to take on additional duties such as payroll, bookkeeping or managing computerised accounts. Not only does this give you the opportunity to bring often-expensive, outsourced services in-house, it also improves employee motivation through career development and enhanced career prospects.

With qualifications in Business Administration, Team Leading, Management, Social Media Marketing and many more,
we have a wealth of professional qualifications to benefit your team.
