Accelerated Apprenticeships for Employers

Our unique Accelerated Apprenticeships model is designed to fast-track learners from Skills Bootcamps into level 4 - 6 technology apprenticeships. 

Accelerated Apprenticeships are also an additional incentive for employers to invest further into training and access local and diverse talent.

Our approach also adds value from the
National Skills Fund, Adult Education and local training budgets, by partnering with regional Further Education colleges we provide pathways from classroom level 3 qualifications into higher qualification technology jobs to ensure a high skill and high wage economy. 

We have established partnerships with globally renowned training organisation, Raytheon Professional Services and world-class universities, including the University of Central Lancashire and Coventry University Group. 

These partnerships streamline the pathway from Skills Bootcamps to apprenticeships, enabling learners to qualify in less time than the current standard through accredited training.

Employers are also given the opportunity to directly influence and feed into the Skills Bootcamp syllabus, ensuring alignment to apprenticeship knowledge, skills, and behaviours, so all their business needs are met.
