We had a very positive experience working with The London Apprenticeship Company. From the outset we were provided with clear information and the support we received from the team was excellent. We found they had a wide range of well prepared and eager candidates and ultimately we found an apprentice who suited our needs very well. We are happy to report our apprentice has grown to be an integral part of business.
