Apprentices

Intermediate Apprenticeships (level 2) , Advanced Apprenticeships (level 3) and Higher Apprenticeships (Level 4) are government subsidised training programmes.  You earn while you learn!

These programmes result in several vocational qualifications for the individual, thus creating a competent and valued member of staff for the employer.

To complete an apprenticeship programme, you have to be employed.  We will help you find a paid job where you will receive training either in the workplace, at HWGTA or at a local college, which will result in several vocational qualifications for you.  Your employer will get a competent and valued member of staff, so everyone is happy.

Who are we?

We are a Ofsted Grade 1, “Outstanding” (March 2016), training provider, delivering workplace qualifications, including Apprenticeships, across Herefordshire (HGTA) and Worcestershire (WGTA).

Typically we work with employers who are:

  • Concerned that they do not have the internal resources in place to develop their staff
  • Anxious that financial constraints will stop them planning for their future skills needs
  • Frustrated with training providers who do not meet their requirements
  • Enthusiastic about developing their existing workforce and bringing in new talent to service their future needs.

We have a positive and dynamic approach to working with companies from the manufacturing, processing, finance, legal and service sectors, together with utilities and local authorities, who range from small family businesses to major employers who are part of international groups.

We believe in offering help and advice in a positive way, and are enthusiastic and work hard to develop ongoing relationships with our members and customers.

What makes us special?

With nearly 50 years in business, we are governed by local companies. This means that our member companies decide how they want their training organisation to be run for maximum benefit to their business, employees and the local community. It means that we design our training provision in direct consultation with our customers. With our expert staff and top class facilities, we can provide ‘off site’ training and ‘on site’ support, brought together seamlessly into an effective training solution. This in turn produces employees who are skilled and motivated, able to fit easily to the work environment for which they have been trained.

As a “not for profit” organisation, we are not answerable to shareholders and therefore any financial surplus gets invested back into improving resources and facilities for our customers.  This means that the organisational ethos and values are all geared towards the prosperity and development of our learners and employers.
