WHO ARE NOWSKILLS?
NowSkills are an experienced and dedicated geeky team who are trained to find and fill IT Apprenticeship roles with young learners within the North West of England. We work with some of the biggest, leading employers in the UK, and we are proud of our 92% success rate. As a training provider, we work as closely with the employers as we do the young learners to ensure a great match.
The NowSkills team consists of trainers, tutors and learning support staff, and those who have met our team will know how much we love a laugh! Although we take the Apprenticeships serious, if you’re a young learner, don’t be surprised if we show up at one of our training centres for a surprise visit with pizza! Our goal is to not only place young learners into an Apprenticeship, but to help them enjoy their time on the course. Our assessors are here to make sure that Apprentices are putting in their full commitment to employers. Working together, every member of the NowSkills team make it their goal to create a positive learning experience for Apprentices and deliver high quality, value-added training for employers.
IT APPRENTICESHIP TRANING
Our team of trainers and assessors are full qualified with many years of experience within the IT industry. This not only means high quality, industry standard training can be expected, but having built up their way in the IT industry themselves, our trainers can relate to our young learners. Our team will help to prepare our Apprenticeships for progression in an advanced and in demand industry.
Some of our courses require twelve weeks of classroom based training, which will be located in one of our centres in either in Manchester or Liverpool. This is not required with all of our courses, and for those who will be required to attend, you will be glad to know, it will not be like classes back at school! Our courses aim to be exciting, and visiting the cities can be very fun. With our centres being located in the centre, there are many things for our young learners to see and do around the training sessions. Check out our city guides to find out what you can do!
WHAT WE OFFER
We love nothing more than a success story, which is why we are so passionate about ensuring that we are there to provide advice and guidance to both employers and Apprentices. Our team consists of members who have had many years of experience within the IT industry themselves, therefore they are fully aware of what to expect whilst working within an IT role, ensuring the most accurate advice is provided. All of our staff memebers are fully trained and aware of our safeguarding policy to ensure that they are all aware of their legal responsibilities, and that we can be confident that we take every precaution to place young learners into a safe and comfortable work environment. We also have an Equality & Diversity (E&D) Policy, that all of our staff must legally comply with. Our main aim is to enable every one of our young learners to equally gain the best experiences, training and opportunities.
WHAT WE DO…
NowSkills are a training provider who specialise in helping young learners and employees to set-up Apprenticeships. We currently offer training in level 3 courses in IT Systems and Networks, Digital Marketing and Web and Software Development, and level 4 standards will be coming soon, offering courses such as Cyber Intrusion Analyst, Network Engineer and Software Developer. These level 4 standards award young learners with qualifications equivalent to university foundation level. Some of our current standards also offer optional additional qualifications such as CompTia and MTA which are highly recognised and desired within the IT industry. Before accepting an Apprenticeship, we will speak to the employers and complete a site visit. We will also screen young learners before putting them forward for an Apprenticeship, to get to know them, and find which Apprenticeship they are most suitable for considering their hobbies, interests and skills. This is how we have achieved a TrustPilot score of 9.6/10 that we are very proud of. NowSkills can be trusted!
WHERE ARE WE BASED?
Just like our employers and Apprentices, we are based in the North West of England. Not only has this familiarised us with transport links and areas, but it has also allowed us to build relationships with some leading employers! As we are based in the North West, it allows us to place young learners in easily reachable businesses. This is beneficial for both employers and Apprentices as attendance and punctuality should not be an issue!
