Helping you to develop your workforce on the job

Apprenticeships offer new entrants to industry the opportunity to gain recognised qualifications in a trade or skill combined with practical training and hands-on experience with an employer. APTUS, which is managed by OPITO and ECITB, is widely recognised as one of the most successful apprenticeship schemes of its kind.
