What we do for you
An apprenticeship is a partnership. We’re here to help you get the most out of our apprentice’s apprenticeship. This normally involves some kind of mentoring programme. We help you deliver the real world, practical advice and training that will help your team provide the guidance and support your new apprentice needs. This is your opportunity to help someone develop themselves and make a real difference to your business.
What we do for your apprentice
Our role is to make sure that your apprentice is fully willing and able to contribute to your company. Not only do we carry out an in depth vetting process, we make sure they have the practical and theoretical skills they need to begin. Once they’ve started, we’ll make sure that they make the required progress academically, as apprenticeships still require some classroom learning.
Bespoke recruitment service
Our experienced staff are accredited by Matrix in the provision of Apprenticeships. This means we find apprentices who have the potential to make a real contribution to your business through our extensive vetting process
Role specific testing criteria
Evidence based interview techniques
Skills testing for basic competency
The apprenticeships system is changing again in 2017 with big implications for businesses of all sizes. We’re here to help you understand what will work best for you. By working out your needs we can provide the selection of services that are best for you and help you navigate the administrative and practical challenges of training an apprentice. As “Frameworks” become “Standards” and funding undergoes a major upheaval, our approach is to put your requirements first, so you can focus on getting the most out of your team.
As well as getting your apprenticeship off the ground we can provide the class room learning elements of the programme. Different apprenticehips have different classroom componants but most require Key Skills certifications of some kind or another. Our team of engaging educators are here to deliver the taught part of an apprenticeship in a flexible manner.

Frequently asked questions
There is strong government support for apprenticeships. In most cases all of the vetting and training aspects of an apprenticeship are paid for by the government. It’s free to advertise an apprenticeship on a national level and the services we provide in recruiting and supporting apprenticeships are also covered. Although the minimum wage for apprentices varies depending on age, they are normally lower than the national minimum wage to account for the extra support they will need. However, there are significant changes to how apprenticeships are funded starting in 2017, so get in touch to find out more about how we can help you fill your skills gap.
