WHAT CAN WE HELP YOU WITH?

Apprenticeships

On-programme learning to prepare for end-point assessment

The introduction of the UK apprenticeship levy provides organisations with an opportunity to re-examine their existing apprenticeship programme or incorporate one for the first time. Our experts will assist you in identifying which apprenticeships are right for your business as well as provide bespoke packages to support the on-programme element of your chosen apprenticeships. If required, we can also support the creation or update of your apprenticeship strategy to incorporate the changes resulting from the apprenticeship reforms. In short, we provide end-to-end support services and resources to enable your business to best capitalise on the levy and ensure your apprentices are fully prepared for end-point assessment.

An Accreditation is a internationally recognised hallmark of approval and stamp of quality from City & Guilds, a leading vocational awarding body, on an employer’s own in house training processes and systems. Accreditation allows an employer to receive the recognition you deserve for your high quality employee development. In addition, it sends a powerful message to your employees, customers and investors about your commitment to workforce development and differentiating you from your competitors.
