We are a leading provider of apprenticeship training in the Liverpool and Merseyside area.

Apprenticeships allow you to work, earn and gain a qualification in the area you are working in. How you study can vary from apprenticeship to apprenticeship, some require you to attend college one day a week, others require you to do all of your studying at work, whilst some are a blend of the two, in this case you may attend “lectures” away from work but only once or twice a month.

Apprenticeships are available for level two to degree level; typically it takes one to two years to complete however some may take longer due to the nature of the programme.

What's involved?

  • Employment for at least 30 hours per week, if you don’t have employment we can help through our network of contacts.
  • A commitment from you, to meet deadlines and a commitment from your employer, to support your development and learning.
  • Regular meetings with your assessor and tutors who will guide you through the qualification and advise you on developing you in the workplace.
  • On completion you will have achieved several qualifications and in some cases recognition for the qualifications you currently hold, once this is all combined you will achieve your apprenticeship certificate.
