Apprenticeships

"All apprentices benefit from the very good support given during frequent and comprehensive visits by their trainer assessors." - Ofsted, 2017

We will help you improve the skills of your workforce, developing stronger employees who work well as individuals and as part of a team.

We have specialist sector experience

We work with employer partners to deliver tailored Apprenticeships across a number of specialist sectors - including manufacturingaerospacepharmaceuticalsNHS TrustsIT and

Digital and much more.

Our Trainer Assessors are selected for their relevant industry experience and deliver high quality, flexible training with an excellent balance of classroom style and workplace learning.

We have also opened our first Academy in Wolverhampton, specifically for training apprentices in IT and Digital Marketing. Find out more about the Academy here or download our Academy Employers Guide.

We fit around you

Our Trainer Assessors are flexible to fit training around busy working days and shift patterns, and will always avoid periods of peak demand. Sessions can be re-arranged at short notice where required and one-to-one training is arranged for individuals who cannot make a group session due to work conflicts.

Our learning materials are high quality and industry-specific and they can be co-branded with any employer.

We can help with recruitment

As well as helping to identify training needs and solutions for your workforce, we also provide employers with a dedicated recruitment resource.

Our service will help you to reduce the cost of bringing new talent into your business. This includes arranging advertisements on the nationally recognised Apprenticeship Vacancies website, where all interested individuals are actively searching.

We’ll guide you through the Apprenticeship Levy and other changes

From April 2017 the way Apprenticeships are funded is changing. All businesses with an annual wage bill of more than £3m will have to pay a 0.5% tax – which they can then spend on training an apprentice.

The Government hope the changes will help to bridge the skills gap by encouraging more businesses to invest in future talent and help it fulfil its pledge to create three million more apprenticeships in the UK by 2020.

At Skills Training UK we are committed to helping our employer partners through this period of change and our dedicated team will be with you every step of the way to ensure you are making the right choice for your business.
