Learning and Development Consultancy

The Apprenticeship College is a training provider specialising in apprenticeships designed to develop and upskill. We specifically deliver apprenticeships that meet your needs as an employer and individuals professional development, are fully Apprenticeship Levy-compliant and enable your team to achieve the qualifications and skills.

We don’t provide off-the- shelf apprenticeship training solutions. Instead we work with you to develop an apprenticeship blueprint which details your training objectives, correlates these to apprenticeship standards and frameworks, specifies efficient and effective ways of delivering the training and assesses the best ways in which this can all be organised to recover your Apprenticeship Levy payments and/or benefit from extensive government co-funding.

We are an apprenticeship training provider that uses apprenticeships to deliver your Learning & Development (L&D) plan.

Blueprint Service

Our Blueprint Service provides a detailed plan that supports your learning and development solution. We will work with you to identify the most suitable programmes of learning to your support your needs.

This tends to be a blended approach of apprenticeship standards complimented by commercial sessions, but all can be run as independent programmes too.

We can help you budget your levy spend over the next few years ensuring you are choosing the right programme to grow your people and your business whilst making the most of your levy pot.

Our approach is to support career progression through a learning journey. This is where our commercial workshops can really add value. You use them to compliment and enhance your apprenticeship delivery (we can help you with what ones may work best) or if you want to offer them as a standalone sessions to your staff to develop specific capabilities.

Our blueprint will develop an ongoing plan that develops your workforce.

Our Approach

We are all about the learner! The learning experience is delivered in a fun and creative way to build learner engagement, whilst also doing what it needs to do – building skills, knowledge and behaviours.

We are unique! All of our training, whether it be an apprenticeship standard, a commercial session or a bespoke programme we have designed just for you is delivered in an interactive and engaging way. We believe everyone has the capacity to learn, to do something different. Theatre based learning plays a big part in our approach to learning. Where suitable we use professional actors to deliver scenario based sessions, facilitated by an expert trainer to provide experiential learning.  In a safe environment learners are able to observe our actors recreate their world in front of their eyes and get involved.

Credibility goes a long way in the classroom. That’s why our training is delivered by subject matter specialists with a vast array of experience.

Teaching, Learning and Training

Our training is delivered through an immersive and experiential programme of teaching and learning. Our apprenticeships include masterclasses, theatre-based learning, workshops and webinars. They are designed to develop your employees’ skills as learners and thinkers as much as they develop specific skills.

All of your apprentices will be supported by one of our Skills Coaches. The Skills Coach directs and mentors each apprentice through the programme, providing regular feedback whilst directing their individual learning plan.

Funding for Your L&D

The  Apprenticeship College is an approved provider of apprenticeships and listed on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP). This means that we are authorised to deliver apprenticeship training by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), using funds that your business has paid into the Apprenticeship Levy or to access government co-funding if you are not a levied employer.

Our objective is to work with you to plan L&D programmes that use apprenticeships. By doing this we can ensure that you recover your Apprenticeship Levy and/or maximise government co-funding whilst simultaneously meeting your skills objectives.
