QA Apprenticeships for employers

Apprenticeships are a great way to develop the skills your business needs, and find local, loyal talent.

Our apprenticeships combine high-quality training with real-world experience in your workplace – providing industry-relevant, Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ training embedded by practically applying it in the world of work.

Our programmes are designed with progression routes built in – we offer training from GCSE to MSc – so you can develop enthusiastic, young talent to address the skills shortages you have now, whilst allowing apprentices to grow with your organisation and give you the skills you need in the future.

By accessing a relatively untapped pool of local talent and upskilling them on one of our apprenticeship programmes, you can transform the way you recruit — giving you the skills your business needs, for less. Government funding is available for apprenticeships – presenting a cost effective way to attract the right talent to your organisation and help contribute to reducing youth unemployment and skills shortages in the UK.

Why hire an apprentice?

  • Get talent that is here to stay - 92% of QA apprentices who graduate, go on to full-time jobs and 90% are with their employers for a year or longer
  • Grow your own talent – with the specific industry-relevant skills you need
  • Reduce recruitment costs – get the talent you need in house and reduce costs spent on retraining new staff or hiring contractors

Did you know?

Apprenticeships aren’t just for new hires – you can upskill your existing staff too! You can enrol existing members of your team onto an apprenticeship programme whilst they still carry out the same job role in your business. All they need to do is meet the entry criteria.

Why QA Apprenticeships

Nobody does IT, tech and business apprenticeships better than QA - we will have placed over 10,000 apprentices into tech our first 6 years, our training was described as ‘world class’ by Ofsted when they rated us ‘Outstanding’ and we’re dedicated to providing quality in all of our services, from recruiting the right, high-calibre candidates to providing unrivaled learner support for our apprentices.

We offer the same professional service as our parent company QA Ltd, who have over 25 years' experience in the industry. We can help you understand how apprenticeships can work in your business, and offer advice on the possible approaches to expanding existing programmes or implementing them for the first time.
