Why develop an in work coaching and mentoring programme?
Raise staff moral, motivation and skill set and improve
the life of your trainees.
Support your trainees:Coaching and Mentoring at work
We provide your in work apprenticeship line managers or supervisors with coaching and mentoring training to enable them to best support and develop your trainee on the job. We will provide in work training to your staff to minimise disruption to your working day and at a time that suits you.
While some apprentices will apparently sail through the apprenticeship, others will need support in dealing with problems in their personal, work, study, social or domestic lives which could prevent success on the programme. The coach is responsible for your guidance on day-to-day matters and the Mentor’s focus is on your long-term development.

How it works
Our highly qualified trainers will provide your staff with a total of 10 hours training when it suits you to avoid disruption to your business. By providing training and support at your least busiest times your staff can maximise their learning and therefore providing greater support to your trainees and apprentices.

The most motivating thing for many people is progression and apprentices are no different. They are more likely to succeed if they know that once they have another door will open for them.
It might be a promotion or a pay rise or a move to another department. Often though progression to a higher level apprenticeship is just as motivating.
We plan with you from the outset on this basis.
We want to know where your apprentices can progress to within your organisation so that we can help them realise it.
Fixing a problem
If an apprentice is falling behind schedule we find out why and fix the problem. You’d be surprised at the range of issues that can effect performance – and it’s not always things that are “going on at home“.
For your part, as the employer, you need to make sure the apprentice is undertaking rewarding and stimulating tasks and the right work generally. They have to be doing things on a daily basis that correspond with the aims of their training, otherwise it doesn’t succeed.
So if there is a problem, we’ll look to find what the source is and fix it. Even if that means telling you that you need to change what the apprentice is doing on a daily basis.
Our specialist trainers will support your employees by providing them with specialist mentoring and coaching training to enable them to support your trainees and apprentices whilst on the job"
If you want to make sure that your apprentices succeed the first thing you need to know is how well they are doing. Our apprentice mentor team produce a monthly report on each of your apprentices.
We present this as a whole too, so you can get a picture across your apprenticeship programme.Our reports summarise how much of an apprenticeship has been completed, which units and tests have been passed, how often your apprentice has attended their training and their expected completion data. Everything we present has been independently verified by an external verifier, so if we say your apprentice is doing well we know it’s true.
All of this is even more important than ever if you are paying for it via the Apprenticeship Levy
