SupplyTrain CIC is a social enterprise offering free, impartial advice to businesses interested in employing apprentices or developing existing staff through apprenticeship training.
We believe all businesses, big and small, should have a pipeline of talent coming through their organisations; with the right skills, knowledge and behaviours needed to thrive. We explain the business case to you for taking on apprentices, and have helped over 100 young people into meaningful work by working with employers in this way.
Take our apprenticeship quiz for employers to get started:
SupplyTrain has created over 50 apprenticeship places for young people, due to its high-quality, impartial advice and guidance for SMEs.
It has also developed an apprenticeship marketing and research campaign for Swindon & Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership, audited East Kent College and Canterbury College's Apprenticeship Readiness, Supported Hastings Direct with pre-employment training, to prepare and discover great workers for their business and worked with a series of other training providers on employer engagement.
1, Training should be employer-led
Teaching skills to people that are needed by the labour market produces a more satisfied working population and increase employment rates long-term.
2. Apprenticeships should encourage social mobility
Growing your own talent means giving opportunities to people that have the raw attributes to succeed. This creates a more level playing field in the workplace.
3. SMEs should have access to great training advice
SMEs employ most of the private sector in the UK. They need to keep up-to-date with developments to succeed. This underpins a growing economy.
4. A social enterprise that is ‘enterprising’!
Our work with the training sector aims to be creative, innovative and pioneering. We want our clients to improve work-based learning for all.
