To this end we continue to innovate with our apprenticeship programme, broadening depth and adding value to the core college delivery. This approach helps us attract high calibre applicants, engages them over the 4 years of their training in what are technically complex, safety-critical roles that train them to be responsible in order that we retain their skills post-apprenticeship.
