Apprenticeships deliver the whole package of on-the-job training and occupationally-relevant qualifications that develop the skills, knowledge and expertise of your employees. Our wide variety of training provision means that you will find excellent training that matches your company’s needs and delivers real business benefit.
There is no age limit for apprentices, so you can choose to take on a new apprentice, giving a school leaver the opportunity to train and grow with your business, or enable your existing employees to benefit from increased skills and gain industry-recognised qualifications.
You can also use our apprenticeship programmes to upskill your current staff members. Apprenticeship training can boost your staff morale, increase employee retention rates and improve productivity and efficiency. Hiring apprentices brings fresh ideas to your team and allows you to train them for the skills your business requires, filling skill gaps and developing loyal employees.
We have a dedicated Business Development team who can work with you to assess your business needs and assist you in recruiting a suitable apprentice, contact them at

Employers have a duty to comply with all UK legislation and statutory responsibilities. There is a particular expectation that an employer should take responsibility for an apprentice’s welfare in the workplace and to also seek appropriate advice when they feel an apprentice may be at risk in their personal lives.
We appreciate that for many organisations this can be a confusing and complex area.
