"We were contacted by Dee from National Safety Training Centre back in April to see if we would be interested in taking up the opportunity of some free fork lift training for our employees along with an NVQ qualification which would be relevant to the work that they currently did. Dee came down to our factory the following week and we were amazed by the package that they could offer us which would cost us a business nothing."GRP Building Solutions

Funding an Apprenticeship
Apprenticeships are funded for businesses of all sizes but the level of funding depends on how many people you employ. Small and medium sized employers (less than 250) usually receive full funding and larger employers (250+) are sometimes asked for a small contribution. National Safety Training has secured funding to deliver apprenticeships within the logistics sector.

Why Recruit an Apprentice
Businesses in the UK are under financial strain but it’s the shortage of skilled and talented workers that is the long term threat to a business in the UK. Companies need staff with vocational qualifications relevant to their job role, at present many people remain unskilled.
Apprenticeships are helping to improve the shortage and many employers are now choosing to offer progression routes via apprenticeship schemes. This is attracting talented people who can start at a qualification level appropriate to them and then progress through to foundation and higher degree level. By supporting an apprentice you gain a high level of motivation and loyalty, this has a positive impact on any business, especially when supported by excellent training.
Our specialist support team are customer focused, aiming to understand your needs they will discuss your individual requirements and let you know how much funding you qualify for.
