Our Process

  • Our experts will guide you through the entire process – beginning by addressing any skills gaps within your business that our Ofsted accredited training programmes can fill.
  • As apprenticeships are work-based programmes, we will liaise with you to guide your employee to a training course that is appropriate and relevant to their current job role and business level.
  • 80% of the course will be completed on the job, putting your employees’ newly developed skills into practice from the offset. For the remaining 20%, apprentices complete off-the-job training, which includes: online learning, training and shadowing delivered by the employer, industry visits and time spent writing and completing assessments.
  • Our highly skilled coaches will provide constant support and guidance during the apprenticeship, ensuring your employee is confident and comfortable at all times.
  • Depending on the course being completed and the industry in which you’re working, your candidate may also complete free Functional Skills English and Maths courses to increase confidence and knowledge.
  • As part of the apprenticeship programme, candidates may be required to complete an End-point Assessment (EPA) carried out by an independent organisation, which tests everything they have covered during the course.
  • Once the training programme is complete, your employee will achieve their qualification and receive their course certificates.
  • Depending on the level your employee has completed, they may be able to progress on to higher levels of the programme.
