We’ve developed a market-leading apprenticeship programme that enables Partners to learn whilst ‘on-the-job’ in the Partnership. On completion of our programmes you’ll achieve a nationally recognised apprenticeship standard of competency. Helping you lay the foundations to a successful career.
What We’ve Achieved So Far…
Since the announcement of a government levy was introduced in 2017, we’ve enrolled 1,940 Partners onto one our apprenticeship schemes. This number is ever increasing with every new cohort. In 2019 we enrolled just under 700 Partners to become apprentices!
What Apprenticeship schemes do you offer?
We currently have 26 schemes in total and these range across many different business areas including: Finance, HR, Supply Chain, Retail, Hospitality and Textiles.
Do I have to be a recent school leaver to apply?
Not at all! It’s often believed that Apprenticeships are for those who have recently left school which isn’t the case. You may be looking to develop in your current role or seek a different career path altogether. Either way, our schemes offer the perfect opportunities for you to learn.
Starting your apprenticeship can feel daunting but, rest assured, we have a lot of support in place for you.
As you spend 80% of your time on the job it’s important we get the most out of your 20% learning. To do this we work alongside our carefully chosen apprenticeship providers to ensure we deliver the best possible programme for you. Some of the processes in place to support this are:
- An Individual Learning Plan designed with you and your apprenticeship in mind
- Regular review meetings with your apprenticeship learning advisor.
- 1-1 Meetings with your Manager.
- Online tools and resources to use when it suits you.
- Personal Development Plans for you keep track alongside other goals you may set yourself.
Why can’t I see some of your schemes advertised?
Our Apprenticeships offer an incredible opportunity for our existing Partners to develop their careers. Therefore, not all of our Apprenticeship schemes are advertised externally. In this case you may like to join us in another relevant role where, once a Partner, you’ll be able to consider all of our schemes on offer.
