Every business has different needs when it comes to apprenticeships.

No matter which sector you work in or the size of your business, you’ll know what you want to achieve and the type of apprenticeship you’re looking for. 

Choosing a training provider that is right for your business is really important so here are our top tips on how to choose an apprenticeships training adviser. 

Research what qualifications are available 

Whether you want to take on a number of new apprentices or upskill your current employees through apprenticeships, do some research as to what qualifications and what level of study you are looking for.  

You’ll want to know that your chosen provider offers top qualifications recognised nationally if not internationally, and that any investment you make in your apprentices will benefit them as well as your business in the long run. 

We provide a wide range of apprenticeships across many sectors, as well as short courses and training programmes, to suit all businesses.  

Find out if they offer a good experience all round 

You want to make sure that not only is the learner experience a good one but that employers are just as positive about their provider experience. Is the training provider supportive? Do they communicate effectively? Are they offering the latest industry standards?  

Find out more about learner achievement rates and what employers are saying about the support they’ve received. Our dedicated News and Blog page shows a wide range of learner and employer case studies. 

Check their Ofsted rating 

If you think Ofsted is only for schools and colleges, think again. Since April 2017, any training provider that wants to offer apprenticeships must be on the ‘register of apprenticeships of training providers’ and be inspected within the first three years of its start up. 

At Total People, we’re proud to be an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ apprenticeships training provider and have been offering training and programmes for the past 20 years.
