Apprenticeship training provides your business with enthusiastic employees who are keen to learn and train in the most up-to-date skills and techniques used in industry.
Apprenticeships combine on-the-job experience with off-the-job training. This means that your business benefits from a workforce that has the right blend of practical experience, skills and knowledge.
Apprenticeships are flexible training programmes which mix:
- Assessment and training in the workplace.
- Teaching in the classroom/workshop.
- Exams and practical assessments.
Some programmes can even be delivered in the workplace, minimising the amount of time employees are away from their job.
Available on three levels, anyone can complete an apprenticeship programme, regardless of age or experience, from school leavers to management teams. You can even enrol your existing employees.
Currently, we offer over 100 apprenticeship pathways.
