Why hire an apprentice?

An apprenticeship helps you build a better business by equipping your workforce with improved skills and qualifications. More than 80% of employers across the UK agree. Business leaders also recognise that hiring an apprentice provides many other rewards – from enhancing workplace culture to increasing efficiency and productivity. As the capital’s premier training provider, a CCCT apprenticeship will help you transform your business.

Apprentices who complete our training are work-ready and equipped with externally recognised and quality-assessed qualifications. Some are award-winners in their sectors, advancing working practices with resourcefulness and dedication. Our founding colleges are a source of high-quality candidates. With around 27,000 students, you have a choice from some of the UK’s brightest talent.

Tailored, targeted training

An apprenticeship provides training that is tailored to employers and targeted to your workplace needs. With the new Government levy and apprenticeship training funding incentives, now is the best time for you to hire an apprentice.

Working in partnership with our founding colleges, Westminster Kingsway College and City and Islington College, we are one of the largest further education organisations in London. Our expert trainers and assessors use their strong business networks and knowledge to provide relevant training that adds economic value to your business.

Business benefits

Apprenticeships suit all industries and are helping businesses innovate and meet the needs of the changing economy. Most employers say their apprentices benefit their businesses, including increased productivity of around £200 a week. Our training is delivered by professional educators working with employers across the UK to design courses that are responsive to business. Our apprenticeships in London are targeted to meet the capital’s workforce needs.

With the digital market growing at double the speed of the wider economy, CCCT maintains a close synergy with the technology sector. Our specialist applied science training and digital and technical apprenticeships are suited to roles in ICT and computing but are also applicable to a wider range of occupations in finance, management, property, marketing and digital media.

Qualified and motivated staff

Apprentices are eager to learn and add energy and enthusiasm to your workplace. CCCT training solutions help you nurture and motivate your current workforce, and a quality and credible training programme shows your commitment to business excellence. This increases staff morale and helps improve staff retention.
