We Can Solve Your Talent Gaps in Key Professional Roles

It’s possible we can recruit, free, and professionally train, free, a continuous stream of high-class talent into your organisation
Hire a Tech, Science or Business ApprenticeContact

We have co-created, with industry, several highly customised professional apprenticeships designed to meet specific job role requirements.

Delivered whilst your employees continue in their roles, over a period of 15-36 months, these government funded programmes can lead to master’s degree equivalent qualifications.  

Why Hire an Apprentice?

You may think of typical apprenticeships in accountancy or plumbing when you think of ‘apprenticeships’, but our Professional Apprenticeships are designed for knowledge workers such as software engineers, scientists and business leaders and analysts.

Apprenticeships can also be used to provide funded Continuous Professional Development (CPD) to existing employees.

We can hire, train and coach individuals for junior and expert roles in several sectors over 12 – 36 month part time programmes.

Often at NO COST TO THE EMPLOYER

The S&A Academy business uses the full capabilities of other S&A Group companies to combine our expertise in Consulting, Resourcing and Training to address your talent needs.

Our training solutions can up-skill your junior talent as well as deliver expert training to experienced employees. Our professional apprenticeship programmes combine recruitment and training solutions to deliver you a constant supply of new, skilled and engaged employees.

Due to our subsidised UK Government status, our recruitment and FT Professional Apprenticeship Programmes, whether standard or industry aligned, can come at NO COST to you.

What can we offer you?
