Benefits for employers and employees

From attracting and retaining skilled staff to an influx of new ideas, offering apprenticeships is a powerful way to boost team morale and improve productivity levels within your business.

Whether you’re choosing to create new jobs or up-skill those in existing roles, you need to be sure you’re making good use of the funding that’s available to you. So that’s why working with a training company who’s experienced within your industry can be invaluable. Our association with MITSkills (who are an approved provider on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers) combined with our industry experience, ensures you’ll receive a quality apprenticeship programme.

The Evergreen way

We take a holistic approach to apprenticeships, providing high levels of support to our partners and apprentices throughout. So it’s never about speed or pushing a ‘one size fits all’ programme into your business. Instead, we take a real interest in your organisation and guide you through the entire process. We’ll explain the options, giving information on access to funding and administration. We’ll also help you get to grips with the skills and knowledge your apprentices really need to make a valuable contribution to your business.

We offer industry specific apprenticeship courses in association with MITSkills. You can choose from a comprehensive range of levels and specialities for your workforce. So to find out more about these courses, click below for detailed information.

Funding support

Knowing how to access government apprenticeship funding can be complicated if you’re not familiar with the process. From levy funds to government contributions, it can be hard to work out what you’re entitled to and then how to get hold of it. Along with funding comes regulatory obligations, with costly penalties if you don’t comply.

However don’t let that put you off! We’re here to support you through the minefield of funding and make sure you have everything in place to keep things running smoothly.

Earn while you learn with an apprenticeship

Improve your employability and earn recognised qualifications while you gain valuable on-the-job experience. You can find opportunities and apply directly via the government apprenticeship pages.

Thanks to our association with MITSkills, you can also ring their specialist apprenticeship team on 0845 430 9009. They’ll help you find an apprenticeship vacancy and guide you through the application process.
