Apprenticeships are an exciting way to recruit new staff. Apprentices can quickly become well-trained members of your organisation. They learn from you to become highly valuable employees who you do not want to lose.

We deliver training and apprenticeships across the Medway area and beyond.

Our team of trainers, assessors and quality assurers are highly qualified and experienced and have many years of occupational competency in the subjects we deliver.

Our focus is on the apprentice’s journey. We work closely with the employer to make sure the apprenticeship meets the needs of the employer and that the apprentice has the level of support they need to complete the programme.

We pride ourselves on our success rates and the pastoral care and support we provide to both the apprentice and employer.
