Apprenticeships offer an affordable way to train new team members and upskill existing staff.

Boost your team’s skills, knowledge, performance and job satisfaction, so that your key people stay with you for longer.

How we teach

Flexible blended learning

We work in partnership with Mindful Education, an edtech company that specialises in creating blended learning courses and apprenticeships for professional qualifications. Through the effective use of technology, Mindful Education delivers flexible, on-demand learning that is intuitive and engaging, enabling apprentices to fit their study around their work.

Online and On Campus

Apprentices study online lessons during allotted time at work, and also attend regular sessions with a college tutor, either in-person or virtually.This flexible approach to apprenticeship training empowers learners, minimises disruption to employers, and improves learner retention and achievement.

We have used apprenticeships to upskill our workforce, which is where the big wins are for us as an organisation. When I first looked for an apprenticeship package, I wanted an online platform that would provide everything the apprentices needed. The flexibility in the platform and the variety of information has been really helpful. For us, the blended option will always be the preferred option, because of the flexibility it offers to all parties involved

Employers with an annual wage bill of over £3 million are required to pay the apprenticeship levy at 0.5% each month. Your levy fund can then be accessed for training and assessment on approved apprenticeship schemes.

For SMEs and non-levy-paying employers, the government will fund 95% of the cost of training an apprentice. You can find more information on the government website.

All apprentices who are employed for over 30 hours per week must undertake a minimum average of six hours of training per week.

The Online and On Campus apprenticeship model provides greater flexibility and convenience as apprentices can log in to study during quiet periods at work. All activity is recorded and counts towards the off-the-job training requirement.

Mindful Education produces flexible, award-winning, blended learning courses and apprenticeships that continue to set new standards in digital education. A compelling mix of academic expertise, technology and creativity, their media-rich courses bring learning to life and achieve outstanding results. Working in partnership with hundreds of employers and training providers, Mindful Education supports thousands of learners each year, helping managers to develop their teams and grow their businesses.

One Message, Different Voices

Take a look at this powerful film made by the staff of Weston College to show how important it is for everyone from different backgrounds to be included. The film shares heartfelt stories and interviews with a diverse group of staff, showing how accepting different identities and backgrounds can make a big difference. Its purpose is to encourage viewers to think about their own biases and work towards making our community more welcoming to all. We invite everyone, regardless of their background, to join us and be a part of our journey toward a more inclusive future.

Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance. We celebrate Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps. In this workplace, we recognise and celebrate our colleagues’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on an employee's ability to succeed.
