Skills for the real world
An apprenticeship is an alternative to academic learning. Not only will you pick up skills learned only with valuable hands-on training with industry specialists, but you can earn a regular salary at the same time. It is an excellent way to supercharge your career and get yourself on the job ladder, whilst picking up the knowledge you need to excel in your chosen field.
How apprenticeships work for you?
From the outset, we communicate with you to find out exactly what your organisational requirements are, then find the best fit for the business and an individual who will bring value to the role instantly.
We want to engage with you
We will meet you in the first instance to find out exactly what your business needs from an apprentice, whilst ensuring that you have all the information you need from the outset.
We will source high quality candidates that not only meet your organisational needs, but have the best personality fit and abilities to contribute to your office dynamics.
Not only will we induct the apprentice, but we will offer ongoing support to both your business and the learner. We hold regular one-to-one sessions with our apprentices to ensure they are on the right track.
Delivery is important
We are versatile in our approach to teaching as we know every business has different needs, so we offer both academy-style support on a weekly basis, as well as distance-learning in the form of webinars.

Really friendly staff and tutors. Great courses and loads of support. They’ve gone above and beyond to help me with anything I’ve been stuck on and provide advice for all situations within my workplace and within the apprenticeship. Super impressed!
Level 3 Software Development Technician Apprentice
I am doing a traineeship here and I couldn’t enjoy it more. They are very helpful and prepare you for your future. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn’t know what direction they want to head in their career path.
Autism East Midlands and GBS worked together to support me through the whole recruitment process. They helped me to find the right employer and role that fit with my skills and needs.

Penny has helped me out whenever I need her. I can come in to the academy to do face to face support sessions and learning sessions which I prefer.
Level 3 Business Administration Apprentice
I was interested in how businesses worked and the whole admin side of things and how that contributes to business success. I really enjoyed it and I learnt a lot from the course and that has allowed me to start my career.
Level 3 Business Administration Apprentice
My experience with GBS has been great so far! Hayley and the team are always very helpful when answering questions and guiding us through the apprentice process. We have even gone on to hire an apprentice through GBS who will be starting in a few weeks. We look forward to working with them over the coming years!
All the delegates have expressed that the sessions are informative and they are getting a lot from them. For some, it has been revolutionary in how they manage their workloads or how they communicate with colleagues.
My time as an apprentice with GBS was extremely good. I felt supported throughout and I believe was given all the necessary resources to complete the Digital Marketing course to a very high standard. My learner mentor, Iain Pickles was always just an email or phone call away and was very happy to answer any question or query that I had. I am overwhelmed to be nominated as a finalist for the ‘Shining Star – Outstanding Drive and Determination Award’. I feel that all the hard work has paid off.
Digital Marketing Apprentice
As an employer mentoring for my first apprentice through this process, I found GBS’ support and guidance invaluable. The steps and requirements on me were clearly laid out and the regular visits from my apprentice’s GBS coach, Iain, helped to keep us on track. In summary I would have no hesitations in recommending GBS to other employers looking to take on apprentices for the first time.
