Celebrating our wonderful Apprentices 

Accredited qualifications gained through apprenticeships and supported by high quality assessors from Hawk training and WMC. Our learner’s tutors are invaluable to their progression and achievements and they will support them closely on a regular basis advising the learners on steps which are required towards their qualifications.

Off the job training provides learners a wide range of opportunities to experience elements which are outside of the normal day to day working. This contributes towards their overall qualification and can involve independent research, parents evenings and a wide range of training courses to further develop their skills and knowledge.

We are extremely grateful for everything you are doing, the positive impact you are having on our children’s lives and the professional support you are providing to parents.
