QA Apprenticeships - Super September sees QA place 350 apprentices!

It is not just the sun that has been shining this month as September has seen a number of successes for QA Apprenticeships, our apprentices and our employers.

We are delighted to have helped more than 350 apprentices start their new jobs. It is great to know that these talented people are at the start of a great new journey – their careers – with growing, successful companies.

These apprentices will begin with technical and professional training, learning the skills they’ll need for their roles. Within just a few weeks, they will be putting what they’ve learnt into practice and will be working alongside their colleagues with full support from their employers and QA Apprenticeships.

Ben Pike, Director of QA Apprenticeships, commented:

"This is an incredible achievement and comes as a result of significant efforts to build and develop our business. Now, the hard work really begins for our support teams in delivering award-winning programmes to these new apprentices and their employers.

"This is another milestone in the development of QA Apprenticeships – we will continue to build on this success!" National Apprenticeship Service Regional Awards
