As we celebrate National Apprenticeship Week 2020, QA has just been rated the top IT training provider and the number two overall training provider by the UK’s premier resource of apprenticeship ratings, RateMyApprenticeship.
Their yearly list of Top 50 Training Providers is based on thousands of reviews by apprentices and is released in tandem with their Top 100 Best Employers list. Apprentices are encouraged to write a review of their apprenticeship and answer 10 questions about their experience. All the scores are plugged into an algorithm on the one side, get calculated, and then emerge ranked on the other side. The top companies get a slot on the Top 50 Training Providers and Top 100 Employers lists. RateMyApprenticeship attracts 100,000 monthly visitors, including students, parents and teachers, looking for peer-to-peer feedback on apprenticeships, degree apprenticeships and other school-leaver programmes.
QA’s apprenticeship programmes have been running for more than a decade. With our focus firmly on helping to close the UK’s digital skills gap, deploying expertly trained apprentices across the country, and helping organisations to attract, retain and retrain talent, QA has shown itself to be a leader in its field.
"RateMyApprenticeship is a well-known and respected platform for learners to give their honest opinions and rate their experiences as an apprentice," says Darren Bance, Managing Director, QA. "That's why we're over the moon to have come out top in the polls. It's huge for us to know that our learners value their experience with us. So much so, that they've gone out of their way to submit a review and rate us highly."
