  • Learners who learn and earn

    Work-based learning offers learners the opportunity to ‘learn and earn’ whilst gaining job specific skills and an industry recognised qualification.  

    Menter Training offers apprenticeships in health and social care to employers looking to upskill their staff. 

  • What are Apprenticeships?

    Apprenticeships are a form of workplace training that allows learners to use their work-based competencies to gain accreditation towards a qualification and develop their careers.  

  • Employers benefit too!

    Apprenticeships are widely recognised as being the most effective way to create a motivated, highly skilled workforce

    Not only are they a great way to train staff and fill the skills gaps, they can also help boost company productivity and competitiveness.   

  • Apprenticeships in Wales

    An apprenticeship comprises a QCF Diploma (formerly known as an NVQ) and the Essential Skills Wales suite of qualifications (L1 – L3 in Essential Communications, Essential Application of Number, Essential Digital Literacy). 

    Menter Training can offer apprenticeships in health and social care for environments that care for adults and children and young people. To qualify for a place on a fully funded apprenticeship, the learner must be employed in the appropriate area of health and social care. Once approved, the learner will be allocated an occupational expert who can assess, guide and support in the work place every step of the way.  

    *The apprenticeships are funded by the Welsh Government and eligibility criteria will apply.
