About this provider

Apprenticeships are an excellent way for businesses to source and recruit new exciting talent, together with using apprenticeship training to upskill and train existing staff within their organisation.

Apprentices can help you gain the competitive edge, bring new ideas and ensure you have a workforce plan to be sustainable and grow.

Apprentices complete a structured programme of training within their specific industry. The methods of learning will depend on the subject the apprentice is studying which means college attendance may be required either one day a week or one day per month. Our experienced staff will support apprentices on site at the employer's premises via regular review meetings and assessment observations.
