An Apprenticeship is an ‘on the job’ training programme that develops an employee’s competence in the key areas they need to, in order to perform their job role. The training is designed to be flexible and meet the needs of each individual, building on their strengths and identifying areas for improvement. An Apprenticeship may involve 1:1 support, discussion, on the job assessments, online learning as well as formal taught sessions and workshops
Apprenticeships are increasingly recognised as the gold standard for work-based training. Each Apprenticeship has been co-developed with employers and employer bodies, to ensure their relevance to their sector and to help to address the UK’s skills shortage areas.
All training will be delivered remotely, via the use of a comprehensive online Apprenticeship platform. This platform is used to deliver Apprenticeship programmes pre-built by fully competent, industry experienced trainers. The platform maps out all the activities over set time frames, throughout the duration, which are to be completed by the Apprentice or in collaboration with their trainer. The platform also allows easy feedback between Apprentice & trainer throughout.
