We will contact you to arrange an induction/enrolment appointment with a trainer.

On-line enrolment will take 3 easy steps.

STEP 1 – A trainer will phone at the time specified in your email. Discuss your apprenticeship and check your current qualifications. They will give you all the information and a start date. (If you have access to a camera, we can also arrange a video call via Microsoft TEAMS then you get to see the staff).

STEP 2 – Log in to your online enrolment portal. (If you haven’t already had an interview you may need to create an account first).

STEP 3 – Simply check your details, upload any evidence as discussed, such as a copy of your qualifications, accept the Terms & Conditions and confirm your enrolment.

The majority of enrolments will be done online however, we appreciate that in some cases this may not be possible. Please contact our helpline to make alternative arrangements Tel No 01226 216106

The way we adapted to online delivery during lockdown, has given us a really good head start. In line with government guidelines for class sizes and social distancing measures, ‘blended learning’ will be the way to go, with a mixture of online delivery and on-site taught sessions.  We will keep you informed of these arrangements as we move forward through the next phase. Our key priority as always is the safety and well-being of all apprentices and staff.

Don’t worry! Tell your trainer and they will work with you to ensure that you have the necessary equipment to support your learning.
