What we do

We work with businesses of all sizes to analyse training needs, identify relevant apprenticeships and the best way of providing the training. Our Apprenticeship Recruitment Service provides a responsive and customer-focused service which offers a high quality, tailored experience to each employer.

The benefits of apprenticeships are becoming increasingly obvious to more and more businesses. Businesses that offer apprenticeships view them as beneficial to their long-term development.

Apprenticeships can deliver real returns to your bottom line. Because they are designed specifically to meet your needs as an employer, they ensure your staff have the skills and qualifications you need now and for the future.

By investing in apprenticeships, you can harness new talent and creative ideas, improve job satisfaction and reduce staff turnover. Apprentices are widely regarded as eager, motivated, flexible and loyal to their organisation. The training they receive at Derby College will increase their confidence, reliability and enthusiasm.

In recent surveys, a majority of employers reported that apprenticeships had helped them boost productivity and performance - leading to lower training and recruitment costs overall.
