Why an apprenticeship with HWGTA?

We provide training for workplace qualifications 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

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 on-going relationships with our members and customers.

What makes us special?

We are ‘Not for Profit’ meaning any surplus is poured back into future development to continue local prosperity and well being for the community. 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.
