Apprenticeships allow you to bring new talent through the ranks and train your team with the skills they need to help your business succeed.

Highbury College has trained thousands of apprentices since it opened its doors in 1963, which means you can feel confident in the service we provide. Whether you are looking to upskill existing staff or employ someone new, Highbury Employment Services can guide you through the process.

From roles in construction to cutting edge digital technologies, employers and apprentices both gain invaluably from the Apprenticeship Programme.

We already cover a wide industry-base, and as well as the apprenticeships on offer, we are able to design tailor-made programmes in order to meet the particular requirements of your organisation.

Apprenticeships can help you:

  • Grow your business and solve recruitment challenges
  • Breed creativity and enthusiasm with new talent, or retain and upskill current staff
  • Provide training that’s tailored to the needs and requirements of your business – learning can even be done in your workplace, minimising disruption and maximising impact
