Why QA Apprenticeships?

Why choose QA apprenticeships?

Find out why QA are one of the leading apprenticeship providers in the UK and what we've done to achieve this.

We've been doing this for a long time

QA are established training experts – we’ve been doing this for over 30 years. We deliver over 500,000 training days to a quarter of a million UK professionals every year.

Our specialist apprenticeship division has been running for over 6 years, and in that time, we’ve trained 10,000 apprentices (and counting) for a diverse mix of exciting customers.

We set the standards in learner support

In fact, 99% of our learners mark us as either good or excellent. The result? More QA apprentices pass their programme and our withdrawal rates are low.

From on-programme support (including face-to-face visits and online learning resources) to a learner services team dedicated to looking after our apprentices’ wellbeing, we ensure our learners are well supported.

We believe in the career-changing power of apprenticeships

Degree pathways

Our apprenticeships are designed with progression routes built-in so apprentices can build long term careers with your business.

We support true career progression – from GCSE-level traineeships all the way up to degree apprenticeships. QA apprentices progress through their career building the right technical skills for their role, as well as the soft skills to succeed in any workplace. We give everyone the opportunity to progress their career as far as they want to go.

why QA Apprenticeships?

We teach apprentices in the way they tell us they want to learn

  1. We’re changing the way we teach to a blended model, so all our programmes have a mix of face-to-face and mobile accessible online learning content.
  2. With our new online platform, learning can be accessed anytime, anywhere and on any device so apprentices get high quality learning content on the go.
  3. We’ve invested in technology so apprentices get the tech-enabled programmes they want, and you get accelerated learning that improves productivity.
  4. In addition to providing online learning for apprentices, our digital course-ware and state of the art facilities enable us to be at the forefront of digital learning in the classroom too.
