Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes that are available from GCSE equivalent up to degree level.

They’re open to new and existing employees and enable you to train your workforce to meet the current and future skills needs of your business; tailoring your training to your specific industry and creating a loyal and valued workforce that will support and help your business to grow.

We are one of the largest providers of apprenticeships in the West Midlands – we have more than 1,500 apprentices training with us. We also provide a large number of programmes across the whole of England. 

We have a dedicated Business Training Solutions Team, who will work with you to assess your training needs and identify the right pathways for your organisation.

They’ll identify funding sources based on the apprentice, programme and size of your business and then advertise your vacancy, screen the candidates and recruit the best individual for the job. If you are looking to recruit new people, we can advertise your vacancy for you.

Off the job training is vital to the delivery of any apprenticeships provision. It helps to reinforce the practical work-based skills completed on the job by the learner.

Off the job training has always been a part of the apprenticeship provision.  Reforms have led to more specific rules from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) around what constitutes off the job training, which must be a minimum of 20%.
