An apprenticeship is a genuine job with an accompanying assessment and skills development programme. It is a way for individuals to earn while they learn, gaining valuable skills, competence and knowledge in a specific job role. The apprentice gains this through a wide mix of learning in the workplace, formal off-the-job training and the opportunity to practise new skills in a real work environment. Apprenticeships benefit employers and individuals, and by boosting the skills of the workforce they help to improve economic productivity.

“Fantastic session today with Daz Davey from Currere Performance Coaching and Education + Training Skills working on Attitude – The Game Changer with some of the team. Definitely recommend to any company. Amazing how attitude influences you more than knowledge & skills!”

“We attended the GDPR Course with ETS which was a great learning curve for us. Not only did it open our eyes to internal data which needs securing but answered questions regarding data we hold on behalf of clients. The documents provided by ETS will be a massive help and save us hours of time. A course we can’t recommend highly enough!”


“Really insightful and informative course. Had little knowledge or  confidence on the new regulations but now feel confident we can put in place the key structures to ensure we are in alignment with the new regulations. Was great to hear from individuals who have put in place structures and were kind enough to offer resource to help with our own workplace. Great course- would recommend.”
