We maximise the benefits apprenticeship training brings to employers with our people, processes and systems:

  • We have long-term relationships with large employers (e.g. JB Leitch, The Co-op and Aldermore Bank), the public sector (e.g. the NHS, Greater Manchester Police and Crown Prosecution Service), as well as SMEs
  • We have coaches and subject-specialist experts who support, challenge, develop and empower their apprentices
  • We have account managers who ensure your apprentices are on target and your business needs are consistently being met
  • We played an integral role in the development of the legal apprenticeship standards and remain a key influencer in the world of apprenticeships
  • We structure our programmes in manageable blocks of learning, which are sequenced to optimise the apprentice’s journey
  • We combine knowledge elements and classical theory with contemporary contexts and case studies to bring the subject matter to life
  • We have our Profiler system which enables us to effectively identify gaps in apprentices’ skills, knowledge and behaviours as well as clearly demonstrate the impact of our training
  • We have a flexible approach to teaching and training, with materials and meetings planned around your business
  • We use our forums to connect apprentices on the same qualification, to give opportunities for support, networking and peer-to-peer learning
  • We use our tried and tested, sophisticated e-learning platform to support apprentices with a range of interactive webinars, discussion forums, expert input, workbooks, videos and other online resources
