How it works

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed to provide employers with fresh talent whilst giving employees the knowledge and skills needed to excel in their roles.

 

Apprenticeships are for existing staff and for new recruits – not just for younger school leavers.

 

Through a combination of on-the-job and off-the-job training, learners will continue to work and earn a living while applying higher level techniques to their roles, increasing productivity and competence.
