Our Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of your business, which lead to nationally recognised qualifications.

We all know that Apprenticeships make sense, but did you know that the advantages they bring to your business are enormous.

Improve your bottom line

Apprenticeships deliver real returns to your bottom line, helping you improve productivity and be more competitive. Training Apprentices can also be more cost effective than hiring skilled staff, leading to lower overall training and recruitment costs.

Fill your skills gaps

Apprenticeships deliver skills designed around your business needs, providing the skilled workers you need for the future. They also help you develop the specialist skills you need to keep pace with the latest technology and working practices in your sector.

Motivate your workforce

Apprentices tend to be eager, motivated, flexible and loyal to the company that invested in them. Remember, an Apprentice is with you because they want to be – they have made an active choice to learn on the job and a commitment to a specific career.

The mixture of on and off the job learning ensures that an Apprentice learns the skills that work best for your business. Benefits that Apprentices can bring to your business include increased productivity, improved competitiveness and a competent workforce.

The best bit though is that funding is available. Whilst you the employer pay your Apprentice a wage, funding is available to cover the cost of the whole cost of the Apprentice’s training:


  • All of our Apprenticeships are fully-funded
The basics
  • Apprentices are employees within a company and are paid a wage (at least National Apprentice Minimum Wage)
  • You can sign up an existing member of staff or recruit a new employee onto an Apprenticeship in your business
  • Apprenticeships are available at three different levels: Intermediate (Level 2), Advanced (Level 3) and Higher Apprenticeship (Level 4 and 5)
  • On average, an Apprenticeship takes 12 to 18 months to complete
  • An Assessor will visit the Apprentice at their workplace once a month for a minimum of one hour
