A PROGRAMME TAILORED TO YOU

Our programme lasts between 16-24 weeks prior to beginning an apprenticeship. If you do the best you can in school and get your GCSE Maths and English grade 9-4, you will be able to progress faster onto an apprenticeship through a traineeship.

However, we have a great education department if you need some extra support when finishing school.  Good behaviour and attendance is something we expect from all learners, you never know you may even make our Learner of the Month!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why should I choose Achieve Training over college to do an apprenticeship?

Our establishment focus is purely on getting you the best quality apprenticeships in the area. We have been doing it for over 30 years, so we know our stuff! When on programme you get free breakfasts in centre and can apply for support with travel costs - Something not a lot of colleges can offer!

Are apprenticeships just for young people?

Not at all! You can start an apprenticeship from any age! Our programme is for people aged 16-18 but if you are over 19 we can still get you on to an apprenticeship in no time! 

What wage can I expect on an apprenticeship?

The minimum wage for an apprentice is now a minimum of £4.30 per hour as of April 2021. Depending on your age and how far into your apprenticeship you are, this may differ. Depending on your working hours apprentices can expect a monthly wage from £650+ per month. 

STATE OF THE ART FACILITIES

We have 2 centres in the area, Canavan Centre (Atlas Works) and The Alan Salt Centre.

Our training centres are some of the best in the area, kitted out with the best equipment and real-life setups to get you trained for your apprenticeship. We'll teach you everything from punctuality, health and safety to what to expect in the workplace. 

We have canteens in two of our training centres so you can get refueled with a cup of tea on your break!

"It’s so difficult to decide what to do at a young age, I’m so glad I chose an apprenticeship – I wish I had done it sooner! I would recommend Achieve Training to anyone who is unsure of what career route to take, sometimes you need to try out a certain job role to see if it’s for you. You don’t get the chance to do that at college or university.”
