Our Process

  • Our team of experts are on hand to guide you through the process – beginning with examining your business for any skills gaps that our training courses can fill/
  • As apprenticeships are delivered primarily on-the-job, 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 as your employee is working in their job role, putting 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 high quality assessors will provide constant support and guidance during the programme, ensuring your employee is confident and comfortable at all times.
  • Depending on the apprenticeship completed and the industry in which you’re working, your candidate may also be eligible to complete free Functional Skills English and Maths courses to increase confidence and knowledge.
  • As part of the apprenticeship, candidates may be required to complete an End-point Assessment (EPA) carried out by an independent organisation, which tests everything covered during the course.
  • Once the programme is complete, your employee will achieve their qualification and receive their course certificates.
  • Depending on the apprenticeship level your employee has completed, they may be able to progress on to higher levels of the programme.
