"My dad started this organisation over 30 years ago and we have helped thousands of young people over the years, we want you to know you are in good hands with experienced members of staff to help support you on your apprenticeship journey. Embrace the experience and have fun! "
Following your application, you’ll be invited into the Achieve Training centre for an interview. If successful, you’ll be offered a start date, and you’ll move on to the next step with us.
Don't worry about you're interview, we're really friendly and we just want to get to know you and see what your interests are.
If we don’t offer you a start, we’ll give you the very best advice and guidance. You can also attend one of our taster-days to gain more experience, ask us for more details.
Following a half-day induction, which will tell you everything you’re going to be doing with us over the following months, including initial assessments in Maths, English and completion of paperwork, you’ll get stuck into some taster sessions.
Your tasters will allow you to experience different aspects of the type of apprenticeship you’re pursuing. The tasters in construction will take place in our training centres.
For an office-based journey:
You’ll take part in an induction week where you’ll carry out an initial assessment and Additional Learning Needs screening for Maths and English, alongside sessions introducing apprenticeships, Employer rights and responsibilities, and equality and diversity.
Plus! You’ll be given:
On your construction journey:
You’ll have up to three days in our training centre per week including workshops, Maths and English and personal and social development and employability.
You’ll work towards a Level 1 qualification in Employability, whilst also gaining essential work experience - through our Homeworks service - carrying out trades including painting and decorating, carpet fitting, garden maintenance, fencing and more.
You will also receive additional learning sessions in:
Awareness and knowledge about PREVENT, British Values and Wellbeing.
On your office-based journey:
12 weeks within our training environment with additional learning sessions:
Personal & Social Development (PSD):
Your construction work trial:
Your work trial will usually be for 4 – 6 weeks.
Your office-based work trial:
Your work trial will usually be for 6 - 12 weeks.
Once your work trial has been successfully completed, you’ll be ready to take the final step of your journey, to take up an apprenticeship.
As with every step, we’ll be with you all the way and we’ll use our network of partner companies and organisations to ensure we find the right apprenticeship for you.
Your apprenticeship will allow you to get ahead in your career, putting you in a position where you have had valuable work experience and skills. Apprenticeships get you well placed for other full-time positions that become available in the organisation you work for and for other businesses. 8 out of 10 learners progress into work.
Did you know? You can even do degree-level apprenticeships. That means you can still earn a wage and not worry about the debt!
"I am so grateful for my apprenticeship as it's allowed me to be really well placed for a full-time position as a data administrator with Achieve Training. I am really enjoying my new job role and I hope my experiences will inspire other learners and people that they can still achieve career success even in their twenties. "
