Apprenticeships are a way of developing new staff and providing new skills for existing staff by studying and learning through work. 


Apprenticeships can help employers to:

  • meet the needs of your service using an adaptable structured learning programme.
  • access funding resulting in minimum cost to your organisation
  • offer confidence in the quality of learning due to the robust assessment process
  • gain a competent workforce due to the mix of on and off-the-job learning.
