      Hampshire Achieves

      As a recognised training provider we deliver high quality programmes that meet the needs of employers and support apprentices while they earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job specific skills.

      Our service is fully complaint with the Ofsted Common Inspection Framework for Education, Skills and Early Years (Grade ‘Good’ April 2018). We deliver apprenticeship training across the county council to any HCC employee, both corporate and in Hampshire maintained schools. Our team of trainers and assessors work closely with employers to develop bespoke programmes, mapping appropriate off-the-job-training that meets the needs of the employer and the apprentice.

      Providing our apprentices with a quality experience is vital to ensure departments get a return on their investment from our training programme and progression to permanent roles is an important measure of success.
