What we do

Career changing IT, tech and business apprenticeships

We provide high quality apprenticeships that develop the skills you need in your business.

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are training programmes that combine real work with learning and qualifications.

A QA apprenticeship is a talent development programme that creates futures that count. We teach meaningful skills that help build long-term careers.

What we do

How does it work?

  • QA apprentices attend high-quality training at our Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated training centres
  • They spend the majority of their time in your workplace, so they can practically apply the theory in a way that is relevant to their job role in your business
  • QA apprentices are supported by our Skills Coaches, Assessors and Learner Services team for any help they need whilst on the programme

From hiring one apprentice, to large-scale talent development solutions – we’ve crafted our services to support you.

QA apprenticeships aren’t just training programmes – we help employers utilise apprenticeships to meet their talent needs.

Our apprenticeships can be used to:

  • Find and develop local talent
  • Reduce skills gap in your business
  • Grow your business with the skills you need
  • Develop an entry-level talent programme
  • Upskill or reskill staff in areas like leadership and management or specialist IT skills

What we do
