Delivery team:

Our curriculum development and apprenticeship delivery team are a combination of fully qualified teachers, high academic achievers and industry experts who have decided to pursue a career in vocational education.

They are technical experts, exceptional trainers and completely down-to-earth. We select them for their specific technical skills and personality combination!

Delivery Model:

Since our inception, being a technology specific training provider, we have focused on delivering exceptional apprenticeships via a live, virtual delivery model.

Live virtual teaching is an approach where the entire curriculum, teaching methods, and resources are specifically chosen, sequenced, and refined for virtual learning. Live virtual learning, when done well, is not simply providing a teacher-led classroom session over the internet. It is much more sophisticated than that.

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, many training providers had to rapidly convert classroom teaching to online teaching, whereas we already had a very well-developed delivery model for virtual learning and a track record for success, plus a training team that were already experts in virtual teaching.

Here are some of the key features:

Maximum classroom/cohort size is 12 in order to provide the optimum ratio of trainer to apprentices. This helps to ensure the apprentices’ attention, collaboration in groups and involvement in discussion is free flowing and not overcrowded. It also enables the trainer to easily identify and support any who need extra attention and to identify, stretch and challenge any who are excelling.

Sessions comprise of individual and group activities, along with the use of technical labs and interactive illustrations. We teach the latest industry relevant concepts, along with the how to use the most common tools and platforms which the apprentices get to fully interact and practice with.

Sessions are no more than 2 hours in duration and are scheduled weekly. Attention span through the delivery medium is fully optimised. This approach cultivates faster vocational development and better knowledge retention because skills are often then practiced in real-time between lessons. As a comparison, block training can stifle vocational development during the block training periods and hinder retention of the new knowledge gained throughout a block if the new knowledge isn’t practiced very soon after it is taught. Our approach also allows for relevant work-based problems to be brought to the next session and discussed to further build on vocational knowledge and skills in problem solving, which builds applied skills alongside the academic development.

Employers are able to see real-time development and can increment an apprentice’s responsibility proportionate to their developing skills.

Off-the-Job Training tasks are set weekly to consolidate the subject matter taught in lessons and /or to research in preparation for the next session of teaching.

The approach is proven to help ensure first time understanding and long-term retention of information – it goes in and stays in!

The minimum number of apprentices enrolled from any employer can be just one. This means apprentices can start faster without the employer needing to wait for the minimum number of apprentices stipulated by a training provider. Also, cohorts from a mix of employers and sectors broaden the apprentices’ understanding of industry environments and how different problems or challenges are approached and overcome.

Whilst this is just an overview of our delivery model, much more detail and examples can be provided in an information/discovery session.

Information/Discovery Sessions:

Any session can be tailored to your needs depending on what you already know and what you want to know.  So, if you are familiar with apprenticeships and just want to know the details about a specific apprenticeship or our delivery model, we can cover that. Or, we can provide all of the information on apprenticeships, funding, recruitment and everything you might need to get an apprentice or apprenticeship programme running within your organisation. We also provide Q&A during the session and then remain on-hand after should any further questions come to mind.

Our Information/Discovery Sessions are typically held over Microsoft Teams. However, depending on risks from COVID-19, a visit can be arranged or, if you prefer old-school, we can explain things fairly well over the telephone!

We have delivered information sessions one-to-one or with up to 80 participants including senior HR/Learning and Development, IT, Data, Project department heads and prospective apprentices present. In some cases, employers prefer us to conduct separate information sessions tailored to each stakeholder/department.

To book a session simply email or call us on 0300 380 0249 or email info@theatp.co.uk

Apprenticeship Management Information Suite:

We provide employers with full visibility of each apprentice’s progression including lesson attendance, task status, Off-the-Job Training progress, resources, learning schedule and results. The highly sophisticated and user-friendly system is accessed via a web-portal, which can be provided to all relevant apprentice stakeholders along with user training as required.

Recruitment Search and Selection:

We provide a full or collaborative recruitment service. Alternatively, if an employer wishes to conduct their own recruitment process, we can provide any information necessary to ensure recruits are eligible for apprenticeship funding and meet the criteria for the specific apprenticeship selected.

 For employers wishing to recruit three or more apprentices, we can provide a fully virtual assessment centre to test the final stage applicants. The exercises are selected to reveal the attributes required and are agreed with each employer. The ATP hosts and administers the assessment centre and employers can watch, participate or just review the results.

 Look out for the testimonial from FedEx in the rotating banner below, who gained huge value from the assessment centre and have recruited three amazing apprentices as a result.   

The ATP provides:

  • Our specified apprenticeships throughout all of England
  • To both Levy and non-Levy paying employers
  • Apprenticeships to new recruits or to upskill/re-skill existing employees
  • Updates on changing initiatives or legislation affecting apprenticeships or their funding

Matrix Assessment

Employers  described  how  effective  this  initial  IAG  is  and  how  impressed  they  were  with  the  way  the  team  conducted  themselves,

‘I  was  really  sceptical  at  first,  it  all  sounded  too  good  to  be  true,
but  they  really  have  ticked  all  the  boxes’

Employers  appreciate  the  way  in  which  the  programme  of  support  is  designed  around  them,  and  one  commented,

‘There’s  none  of  that  ‘Oh  we  need  6  learners  to  make  it  work’  with  them  –  it  really  is  bespoke’

ESFA/ Internal Employer & Learner Satisfaction Surveys

A recent survey shows that 100% of employers received ‘sufficient information prior to the programme being started’, and 90% of learners believed, ‘the guidance I received was good’.

Jack Level 4 Apprentice, The Hut Group

“My trainer at The ATP is great, really supportive. Whatever you’re struggling with, she will always make extra time to call and help.”

“I’m enjoying the apprenticeship so much.”

Mike – Josh (Level 4 Cyber Security) line manager, Arco

“His work ethic, ability and desire to learn, along with the support he gets from The ATP has quickly made him semi-self-sufficient, dependable and reliable.”

“The framework in place from The ATP ensures that the apprentice doesn’t fall too far behind on deliverables and knowledge. The catch-ups both virtually and physically with The ATP team have helped both Josh and I understand the process and ensure that we help Josh develop as much as possible to achieve his goal.”

 

Ryan - Level 4 Apprentice, The Hut Group

“Working with the ATP has been an absolute pleasure; I have a talented and knowledgeable trainer and mentor to guide and drive me through my journey. They continue to be an absolute delight and their extra efforts with me are duly noted and greatly appreciated.”

“Being part of The ATP family brings an environment where it is safe to ask anything you desire; they are there to help.”

“What I enjoy most about my apprenticeship is the motivational and structured learning. The ATP provides weekly virtual lessons, regular support contact (as required) and supportive staff. Nothing ever seems too much trouble for them to help with and it is a completely refreshing and pleasant environment to be in.”

 

Nicola – Level 4 Data Analyst, Konica Minolta

“Some of the work is very challenging; for example the Python coding. At the moment, this feels like a brick wall in front of me, however my trainer at the ATP is providing additional support sessions to help.”

Josh – Level 4 Cyber Security, Arco

“The ATP have been fully supportive of me during my apprenticeship and the training offered is really, really good. My trainer is great at explaining things and the live virtual lessons work really well.

Virtual lessons are more convenient than having to drive or pay for a train ticket to get on site. It’s easy just to book a meeting room for the lesson. If I need assistance both my trainer and mentor are always quick to jump in and help.”

Jessica – Level 4 Business Analyst, AXA Insurance

“The weekly training sessions with The ATP help to bring the theory alive; my trainer is great at giving real-life examples to provide context.”

“The training sessions are very interactive, and the practise tasks are great at providing the opportunity to practise the techniques myself.”

Joshua – Level 3 Infrastructure Tech, Huntswood

“The lessons with The ATP have been really fun and it’s great to have a more academic, holistic understanding of the things that I am working on in the job.”

Reckitt Benckiser

“It has been a pleasure embarking on the Apprentice journey with ATP. In bringing
fantastic apprentices to our IT team, ATP have helped us at every step of the way
– including helping us to understand where apprentices would be best placed, to
the willingness and expertise to meet with our senior leadership to explain how
apprenticeships work. Even while navigating the pandemic, it has all been
seamless.

We aim to continue this partnership into the future because having apprentices
enables us to realise our ambitions to seek out new opportunities, build shared
success and do the right thing.”

 

Tracy - Recruitment Specialist - Human Resources FedEx

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for our recent intake of apprentices. The service has been exceptional and nothing but professional from the initial meeting, to the selection, to intake.

Amy did an amazing job of the selection, organising the candidates for assessment and interviews.

Due to the current Covid situation, everything needed to be ran virtually. Rebecca was amazing and ensured that the assessment day ran smoothly, was fun and enjoyable for all involved.

The calibre of candidates has been extremely high and made the selection of just three very difficult.

We will continue to use The APT and are already in discussion for another Cohort and looking forward to building our Apprenticeship programme with the team.

Again, Thank you so much.”
