This not only benefits the young learner but also the employer.

We take careful considerations when selecting applicants and employers/positions. We take our screening processes seriously in order to ensure they meet our standards, as well as complying with our safeguarding, and equality and diversity policies.

We are a government (ESFA) regulated training provider, and the qualifications gained by completing our apprenticeship programmes are awarded by Pearson/Edexcel and City & Guilds. Tutors are assigned to each apprenticeship. All of our trainers have a great experience within the IT industry, and therefore, provide high-quality teaching.
