Apprentice Training and Development is one of our specialist areas in South Wales. We’ve delivered personal development programmes for Apprentices for nearly 30 years. We have aspire 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. Our Outdoor Development Centres in South Wales is a great venue for courses or at any location to suit your organisation.
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 instil skills and behaviours. These include communication, teamwork and self-confidence in your apprentices that enable them to utilise their technical and practical skills for the best advantage for your organisation.
Research shows that adults only retain 10% of what they are told, but retain up to 66% of what they do. Our Apprentice Development courses take this into account and provide plenty of practical exercises to aid learning. The classroom practical ratio varies but is typically between 50:50 and 20:80 depending on the objectives required.
We have had several senior managers from repeat clients speak very fondly of their memories of being apprentices on our courses.
Apprentice Development programmes are built bespoke to your organisation’s needs. This 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 effective duration for an Apprentice Development course is when the candidates immerse themselves in learning from Monday to Friday on a residential week. However, our flexible approach allows us to work around your needs and constraints, building custom Apprentice Development courses to suit you.
Our Apprentice development and Personal Development programmes can be delivered anywhere in the UK. Including at your workplace, at a venue that is convenient for you or, most often, through the medium of Outdoor Development at one of our Centres in South Wales.
We believe in providing solutions, not products. Each programme we deliver is bespoke, based on your organisations needs. To find out more about our approach click here.
