Recruitment and training firm Acorn has been approved to deliver apprenticeship training in England.
In successfully joining the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP), Acorn will now be able to deliver apprenticeship training in England, as well as Wales.
With over 750 apprentices already undergoing work-based training from Acorn every month, the company has a history of delivering training and development solutions to businesses in a variety of industries including HR, IT & Digital, Finance (Banking and Insurance), Project Management, Customer Service and Retail.
With over 15 years’ experience in the training industry, Acorn continuously develops new courses in partnership with a number of educational establishments. Recent launches include the introduction of the CIPD Level 5 Apprenticeship – a diploma in Human Resources Management, and the Level 4 Diploma in Project Management. Acorn was also the first training provider in the UK to deliver and achieve the Higher Apprenticeship in Banking.
Apprenticeships are a positive addition for businesses; mutually benefitting employers and individuals, by improving the skills of workers of all ages and levels, which further contributes to the success of businesses and the wider economy. Securing this new accreditation cements Acorn’s commitment to supporting employers in successfully training their employees.
Acorn’s Commercial Director, Sarah John, said: “Becoming an RoATP-accredited apprenticeship provider is testament to the many years of experience which we have in offering apprenticeships UK-wide.
“Many people still have an outdated view of apprenticeships and we hope that the recent introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy will inform businesses and individuals about the diverse offering that is available, in terms of the industries covered and the level of apprenticeships on offer.”
