Employer Feedback

HSL Compliance

"We have been working in successful partnership with HWGTA for several years. They provide outstanding guidance and advice regarding the ‘people development’ side of our business. One of our core values is that “we are a people company” and the support we receive through our partnership with HWGTA helps us to continually invest in our team and provide them with the skills they need to further their career with our company.

Their value-for-money approach and ability to tailor solutions directly to our needs is exactly what we need. We genuinely would not be where we are with our people without the support of HWGTA!"

Gavin Hartley

Central Roofing

"We have had employees undertake the Customer Service, Business Admin, and Accountancy apprenticeship programmes.

At Central this has been extremely beneficial; the Apprentices have brought great energy and plenty of new ideas to the business. The training provided by HWGTA means we have been able to develop well-trained, highly skilled staff that add value to our company.

As a company, we have also used HWGTA for one-day courses such as First Aid, IT Skills, and many more.

We would highly recommend HWGTA to any company that is considering taking on an Apprentice."

Gemma Allen

Acre Accountancy

"When our company wanted to start offering Accountancy Apprenticeships in 2016, we approached HWGTA because of their excellent reputation. Their professional approach through each step of the recruiting process is outstanding and all the staff are very supportive and friendly.

Apprentices are monitored on a regular monthly basis and the training received is of a very high standard which is evident in our apprentices’ exceptional exam results. HWGTA look after both the apprentice and the employer. Would highly recommend."

Nicola Mason


"Abacus has worked in partnership with HWGTA for more than a decade! Over the years HWGTA has provided us with quality apprentices who are ideally looking for a career with Abacus - two members of our current management team were originally supplied by HWGTA. Apprentices feel well supported by HWGTA while being suitably challenged to meet their course objectives. We are confident that our future growth plans will be supported by our ongoing partnership with HWGTA."

Mike Boyles


"We have been successfully using the apprenticeship training through HWGTA for many years, we have had Accountancy and Business Administration apprentices.

Employing an apprentice is key to our growth and they also bring a new vibe into the environment along with enthusiasm, fresh skills, and new ideas.

HWGTA have supported us as an employer and our apprentices, from recruitment to qualification completion!"

Paul Jones

Hereford Medical Group

"I have personally used HWGTA for both Business Administration and Customer Service apprentices for the last 5 years. Candidates have a very thorough interview process with HWGTA, which is really helpful to us when selecting interview candidates, and identifying those candidates that may be suitable for our business. They provide an excellent service in terms of support to both the apprentice and our organisation. They keep us updated regularly via onsite visits, email communication and they are always at hand to discuss any concerns we may have."

Marcia Martin

Wye Cylinders

"We have worked collaboratively together for several years with over 90% of our staff receiving some form of training from HWGTA. Traditionally this has been in the form of Apprenticeships, H&S training and Leadership & Management qualifications. For myself, personally, I attended and achieved a Coaching qualification for my current role as MD. Coaching has enabled me to fast track the skills and experience I needed to support the running of the business

HWGTA is unique in that they work with us intensively to understand our business and then suggest options/solutions for change and improvement. I feel this ability to tailor training to meet our exact business needs is what makes HWGTA stand out from the rest."

Richard Williams

Thorne Widgery

"The team are very supportive and understand the importance of getting high-calibre, hardworking apprentices with great technical skills to ensure we have the strong resources to grow our business.

The team at HWGTA have got to know the way that Thorne Widgery operates, and the personality and attitudes that will fit within our existing team.

They are very approachable and helpful, and this great relationship has contributed to the awards received by us and several of our apprentices over the past few years."

Jessica Pritchard

Worcester Acute Hospitals

"HWGTA have been providing our business administration apprentices for the last 8 years. They have a really good understanding of the demands on the NHS and always do their best to support our apprentices through their programmes. The staff at HWGTA are great, knowledgeable, always friendly, and willing to help in any way they can.

Long may our partnership continue!"

Rebecca Kear-Bertie

HR Smith Group of Companies

"I’ve always been an advocate of apprenticeships since I completed mine in the 1970s. I have been in engineering for over 48 years, thanks to HWGTA!

I’ve been the apprentice co-ordinator at HR Smith Group of Companies for a while and during that time I’ve helped many young people to become engineers of the future and take great pride in seeing them collect their certificates four years later at HWGTA awards evening. Highly recommend HWGTA!"
