Coronavirus update

HWGTA training centres are open and operating in accordance with the latest Government guidance.  The safety of learners, staff and visitors is our overriding priority and we are continually reviewing our risk assessment and control measures to ensure we provide a safe working and learning environment.

HWGTA staff are working both at home and in the office, and are contactable through the normal methods. Landline calls will be redirected, where required, to ensure customers and learners are able to speak to our team as normal.

The team at HWGTA are fully focused and united in their determination to work together, with both learners and employers, to ensure that during this unprecedented national crisis, we continue to support achievement, learning and success. 


Apprentice activity

September has seen the beginning of training in our centres for new apprentice intakes across our Commerce and Engineering programmes, as well as a continuation of training for those apprentices already on programme. 

Our delivery methods are being adapted and tailored for each programme, with traditional face-to-face and remote delivery being used to continue our outstanding training delivery. 

Our Training and Monitoring Officers are attending employers premises where appropriate and safe to monitor apprentices in the workplace. 


Workforce Development Courses

We are now delivering on site from our portfolio of courses including First Aid, IOSH and Management (ILM) Courses.


Apprentice Recruitment

We encourage applications from anyone interested in an apprenticeship.  Many employers are continuing to recruit apprentices and we are supporting them in finding suitable applicants.  We are carrying out initial assessments and interviews using the latest technology available, to ensure we can place apprentices with employers as soon as opportunities arrive. 

We encourage apprentices and employers to contact us to discuss how we can support them in the coming months. There are enhanced Government financial incentives for employers, with up to £3000 available for employing a new apprentice.


If you have any concerns about this matter, please do not hesitate to talk to one of our team.
