Apprenticeships: choosing your training provider

Wednesday 29th November 2017

Debbie Scotton, Business Development Manager from North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College discusses top reasons for choosing the Midlands-based College as an Apprenticeship training provider.

“The Apprenticeship reforms have had a huge impact on the way Apprenticeships are designed, funded and delivered. One of the major changes is the introduction of the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP) whereby those paying into the levy will select their chosen provider from an approved list.

“From an employer’s perspective, this will ensure they are receiving the highest quality Apprenticeships training, with the register encouraging diversity and competition in the provider market, supporting quality and choice,’ (

“So when faced with the decision as to which provider, why choose North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College?

Ofsted Good rating - “We are rated Good by Ofsted – an assurance that our teaching and assessment is of a consistent high quality.”

Joining forces – “Last year, North Warwickshire & Hinckley College and South Leicestershire College officially merged, allowing us to share best practice and improve quality and efficiency.”

80.3% Success rates – “Our Apprenticeship success rates are higher than the national average, putting us in the top quartile of providers.”

Extensive experience – “We currently have more than 600 employer partners and train approximately 1,800 Apprentices across seven sector areas.
