Case Study

Supporting a flourishing start-up

When trying to grow your own talent as a small business, you face several challenges:

The cost of training to upscale your people

Recruitment costs to find the right people for your team

Selecting the right apprenticeship and apprenticeship providers

Managing off-the-job time required by apprenticeships

The time and effort required to help people develop

03. The Results

Using the government apprenticeship funding, we have been able to enrol four apprentices in:

Organisational & Departmental Management
Project Management
Team Leader
Digital Marketing

Each apprentice has implemented the knowledge and skills gained through their apprenticeship to improve our business efficiency and quality of delivery to our clients.

05. Testimonial

As an owner of an SME consultancy company, I wanted to find a way to grow our talent. Apprenticeships have helped us do just that. We have four apprentices working for us, whose training has greatly enhanced their productivity and the standard of work they deliver. They are always happy to share new ideas sparked from what they have learnt, and these ideas have helped us improve as a business and deliver a better quality of work to our clients.
