Inspired by Excellence

Apprentices can deliver real, measurable benefits – filling your skills gaps while boosting your organisation’s efficiency and competitiveness. They are a cost-effective way to invest in your future managers, increase business growth and attract new talent. Apprentices are widely regarded as eager, reliable and loyal and you can develop them to meet your organisational objectives in line with your own workplace procedures and systems.

Inspired by Innovation

An apprenticeship is a paid job with an accompanying skills development programme which allows the apprentice to gain technical knowledge and real practical experience through a mix of learning in the workplace, formal ‘off-the-job’ training and the opportunity to practice and embed new skills in a real work context. So, not only will you gain valuable experience you will also be learning and studying and earning money at the same time.

Tailor Made

Many Apprenticeship programmes have been designed by employers to meet employers’ needs for
a particular sector or job role to develop apprentices’ skills, knowledge, behaviours and formal
qualifications that the apprentice needs to acquire in order to become competent in their chosen field and sector.

At The Education and Skills Partnership Ltd (ESP) we are dedicated to providing a high quality learning experience for all our learners. Our goal is to equip them all with the necessary skills, tools and knowledge in a safe environment that will enable them to achieve positive outcomes and reach their full potential.

Why Choose ESP?

Helping Students Achieve Their Full Potential

ESP are the preferred choice of learning and skills for all, delivering outstanding quality and results in harmony with individual aspirations and abilities. ESP specialises in a number of business sectors where the management team have held senior roles and therefore fully understand the present challenges these businesses are facing. Companies are concerned with available capacity and are often reluctant to embark on programmes that ultimately may not be given the best chance of succeeding because of time constraints. ESP understands this and works with senior management and other stakeholders to ensure the workforce is not stretched.

Quality at every stage of any personnel development programme, whether Government or Company funded, is key to successful delivery. All of ESP’s programmes are both internally and externally verified and we only partner with the very best of educational establishments. Our aim is to provide high quality education and promote life long learning.

Every organisation is unique with different challenges but all are dependent upon the quality of their workforce, whether they be on the shop floor or around the boardroom table. ESP will discuss with you the issues you want to resolve and agree a remit around which a proposal can be developed. This can be as broad or as discreet as needed. Programmes can be delivered from Level 2 Diploma’s (Traineeships and Apprenticeships) right up to Level 9 MBA. ESP works in partnership with Colleges around the country to facilitate a national delivery and accreditation of the most appropriate and cost effective programmes.

ESP has developed a nation-wide reputation for providing quality training, and delivering high standards of customer service and support to all our clients.

ESP is a leading training provider committed to helping our employers invest in a more professional, skilled and sustainable workforce for the future. We pride ourselves on delivering effective skills solutions for employers, apprentices and learners.

We offer a range of training packages in different subject areas using a variety of delivery and training models to best meet your needs.

If you enjoy sitting in a classroom with a trainer and having the opportunity for discussion with other learners, then ESP will provide this. Alternatively, if you prefer to study in your own time and at your own speed then look at one of our e-learning packages.

What It Can Do For You

With apprenticeships you can:
1) Improve your organisation’s productivity and performance through better trained staff
2) Solve your staff recruitment and retention problems in an affordable way
3) Recruit to your own job specifications
4) Shape and mould a person to your own business requirements
5) Benefit from flexible training which dovetails with your working schedules and business needs

How Long?

The length of the Apprenticeship programme will vary depending on the level and complexity of the apprenticeship but may last from around 12-18 months dependent upon the industry, from things like Customer Service or Business Admin to 18 months to 24 months for programmes such as a level 5 Operations/Departmental Manager programme. Apprenticeships have become a government priority, not just as an avenue into work but also to provide a vehicle for the transfer and development of skills.


As such, an effective programme can be put together for 5-5000 apprenticeships as a fully funded project. ESP will work with each employer to design a program that delivers their requirements in a format that is sensitive to the core activities of the business. The idea is to operate the programme without creating any additional load and unnecessary bureaucracy. ESP provides a comprehensive service that does all of this with the minimal of disruption.
