    • Following the success of Apprenticeship Training Agencies in Australia
  • (ATA’s), The West Midlands National Apprenticeship Service (WMNAS)
  • viewed this model as the perfect solution to businesses, particularly SME’s
  • in the West Midlands struggling with cost effective staffing solutions and
  • training providers struggling to find paid vacancies to place their earners.
  • WMNAS set out a bid for various public and private sector organisations and training institutes to become involved in setting up a series of fully funded ATA pilots in the UK, to meet this demand.
  • In November 2009 BCTG Ltd. Won a stake in this bid and received funding from WMNAS to become one of the first pilot ATA’s. BCTG opened its first dedicated pilot ATA branch in Wolverhampton centre under the trading brand: ‘The Apprenticeship works’.
so what is it

So What is it?

  • ‘The Apprenticeship Works’ is a brand new alternative to the modern day recruitment and training agency. It combines the best search and selection, payroll and account management services of an agency with our ability to Broker out Apprenticeship training to our panel of apprenticeship Providers.
  • ‘The Apprenticeship Works’ has a skilled team made up of recruitment and training professionals, a finance support officer for payroll services and a dedicated vacancy matcher. This unique blend of skills enables us to offer the whole service package to employers and providers alike with single points of contact for each department.
so how does it work

So how does it work?

  • OurApprentice Brokers will engage with employers to generate new vacancies for the agency and where an opportunity is identified, complete a full ONA and Job Description to return to the office.
  • The Agency Vacancy Matcher will then source and pre-screen a list of apprentices on the phone and make arrangements for a face to face interview.
  • Successful candidates are then forwarded to the employer and the Apprentice Broker for selection with details of a suitable Apprenticeship Provider selected from our panel.
  • The Agency will then employ the successful Apprentice on a weekly BACS pay run, taking full responsibility for things like holiday and sick pay, taking the liability off the employer for the duration of the assignments.
key target groups
