Apprenticeships are your chance to give back to the next generation! An Apprenticeship is a real job that can open doors to a bright new future and are challenging yet rewarding.  They are also the first step towards a long-term career, enabling progression and excellence in the industry of your choice.

Most training for employers is provided on site at a time that takes into consideration working practices, shift patterns and the day to day demands of the business. We are also able to offer a distance learning component too.

All of our accredited courses are conducted by a team of trained assessors. Our bespoke courses are tailored to your specific needs and delivered by a skilled and experienced training provider.

Location is dependent on the specific course. Most of our programmes are delivered in the work place

There are a huge range of courses available, all catering for different skill sets and experience. The easiest way to make sure you receive the training that will benefit you best is to contact us. One of our training experts will be able to visit you / your company to discuss your existing qualifications and experience and will be able to develop a bespoke plan to help you develop and better your career.

All courses are assessed ‘on the job’. Trained assessors will work with you during your usual working day to assess each part of the course. This may involve working with workbooks and informal discussions. We will advise you if there is any tests/exams for your specific course.

All courses are different, but on average a level 2 NVQ/QCF tends to take between 4 and 6 months, with a level 3 NVQ/QCF taking between 6 and 9 months. These average time scales are based on an assessor visiting you every 3 weeks for approximately 2 hours a session. Our Apprenticeship programmes are run on a similar basis however with a minimum duration of one year.
