What you get with TSW Apprenticeships

Employer apprenticeship consultation

Our experts visit you to discuss your teams' needs. You have the chance to ask about the management apprentice program, and map out the learning outcomes for your business.

The aim is to deliver a learning roadmap that enhances your company performance and service by furthering education. We'll help you digest all of the details, identify the staff ready for development, or help you recruit new talent.

Awareness sessions

We use this time during the apprenticeship to set expectations with your candidates. Your Training Advisor will plan out your journey to success, the standards you'll be measured against, and what support you'll get from your coach and your company. It sets expectations about the time and energy demanded by the apprenticeship and the qualifications within it.

Health and safety appraisal

We'll visit your place of work and conduct a mandatory health and safety check. It proves you're working in a safe environment, suitable for apprentices and TAs. We manage the appraisal entirely - all you need to do is show us around. Once we've dotted the i's and crossed the t's, it's valid for four years, so you can easily take on more apprentices, or bring other qualifications into your environment.

Support when they need it

Learning happens 24/7, especially when you work in management. Our assessors are available via email, text and WhatsApp to support your apprentices.

Six month employer evaluation visit

There are a number of ways we can help you to realise return on investment following an apprenticeship. Feedback and evaluation allow us to see if the lessons we're teaching are successfully transferring into your company.

That's why we book in a six-month health check with you and your apprentice.

A quick candidate survey reviews the quality of the programme and their learning experience. We can collate and compare data between organisations to improve the course delivery.

We're committed to employer evaluation. We want to make sure the apprenticeship and outcomes are exceeding your expectations, and that the apprentice is demonstrating knowledge and competence in their role.

We're on hand to support you with any queries as the apprenticeship progresses.

Coaching for the apprenticeship key themes

We're on hand to support you with any queries as the apprenticeship progresses.

If you sign up for an apprenticeship in Wales, you'll learn about key themes embedded in its curriculum. The key themes are consistent across every apprenticeship in Wales.
