Apprenticeships for your business

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. The combination of on-the-job experience with off-the-job training delivers a workforce that has the right blend of practical experience, skills, knowledge and behaviours.

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 at various levels, apprenticeships are ideal for recruiting new talent into your team, or upskilling your existing employees.
