Apprentice Development

“Apprentices need more than technical training.“ Alison Bladon, Bridgend Engine Plant (Ford) 

Apprentice Development with Hawk Associates

This is one of our specialist areas. We have delivered personal development programmes for Apprentices for over 25 years and have endeavoured to provide the very best in learning and development experiences that are both challenging and fun at the same time.
We cover a wide range of skills from personal development aspects to team and leadership skills. Courses are tailor made to meet your needs and to suit the stage of apprenticeship that the participants are at. They can be based at one of our Outdoor Development Centres in South Wales or at a location to suit you.
Our Apprentice Development programme will complement your organisation’s in-house apprentice training by developing people skills that are not normally covered by technical or job-specific skills training. We instill skills and behaviours such as communication, team work and self-confidence in your apprentices that enable them to utilise their technical and practical skills for the best advantage for your organisation.

Our Apprentice Development programmes are built bespoke to your organisation’s needs, which provides you with the opportunity to specify the skills and behaviours that are most important to you. We can then align the programme to your organisations values and culture. The most effect duration for an Apprentice Development course is where the candidates are immersed in the learning from Monday to Friday on a residential week, but our flexible approach allows us to work around your needs and constraints, building custom Apprentice Development courses to suit you.
