Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are a great way to refresh, develop and expand your business.

Our experienced apprenticeships team works with over 100 employers guiding them through the apprenticeships maze. We can help you take advantage of opportunities to employ and train a new member of staff, or increase the skills of existing employees.

If your apprentice is aged 16-18, or you are a levy-paying employer, this can be a particularly cost effective training development strategy.

Working with us

You will benefit from:

  • Letting us take the strain of identifying your recruitment and training needs, advertising your vacancies and shortlisting applicants.
  • Saving money on recruitment and training.
  • Creating a motivated and valued team who are specifically trained to meet your business’s needs.
  • Employing apprentices who can be particularly keen, motivated and flexible.
  • Levy-payers can save further by utilising the levy.

With the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy and current Government’s focus on the growth of apprenticeships there has never been a better time to get involved.

At Totton College, we offer intermediate, advanced and higher apprenticeships which can lead to nationally recognised qualifications in a wide range of areas including:

  • Beauty therapy
  • Business administration
  • Customer service
  • Digital marketing
  • Hairdressing
  • Health and social care
  • Housing
  • Logistics
  • Management
  • Marketing
  • Motor vehicle maintenance
  • Team leading
  • Warehousing

Apprenticeships normally run for 12 to 18 months, although some may be for longer.

Recruit and train

Whether you take advantage of our free training needs analysis or brief us on the post you’d like to fill, we will advertise your apprentice vacancy, shortlist applicants and set up interviews. Once recruited, we will develop day-release or work-based training, run monthly workshops and carry out assessments to ensure your new employee is supported towards gaining their qualification.

Upskill existing staff

We support an increasing number of employers who want to engage in apprenticeships to provide existing staff with professional development. The training and subsequent qualification benefits your employee, you as employer and your customers.

Whatever your needs or company size, we can help you to gain valuable new staff members or upskill existing employees, making a positive impact on your business and its future.
