3 Perks of Pre-Apprenticeships For Employers

Many people know what an apprenticeship qualification involves, but what about a pre-apprenticeship?


These programmes offer space for adult learners to achieve their maths and English qualifications ahead of further study opportunities, giving them core knowledge and skills to thrive in their professional lives.


When it comes to enrolling your employees on a professional development programme, it’s key to understand what benefits it can bring to your organisation. Some of the business benefits of pre-apprenticeships include: 

Increase your employees’ confidence and productivity


By enrolling your employees in a pre-apprenticeship programme, they will receive support from expert tutors to develop their maths and English skills. The courses feature skills that are relevant to common work and personal admin tasks, providing a clear connection between lessons and their application.


As your employees develop their understanding and progress through the programme, their confidence to tackle these tasks in your workplace will improve, increasing productivity.

Open doors to new CPD opportunities


A pre-apprenticeship can be the start of an incredible professional development journey. Learners who gain the core skills covered in the programme receive an accredited certification which demonstrates their understanding of maths and/or English, removing the common entry barriers to higher-level qualifications and apprenticeships.


By helping your employees remove these barriers, you can play a fundamental role in helping them achieve their professional goals. Supporting their CPD journey by encouraging working towards higher qualifications also supports internal progression in your organisation through upskilling your team to fill skills gaps.

Flexible study opportunities


The prospect of studying in a classroom can be an obstacle to some adult learners who are considering returning to education. That’s why Hart Learning + Development’s Pre-Apprenticeship programmes are delivered via online learning with our expert remote tutors.


Learners will undertake an initial assessment to review their current skill level, before beginning regular online webinars and E-learning activities ahead of their final examination. They’ll be supported throughout their journey by online tutors and remote support assistants who provide friendly faces for learners throughout their learning journey.

Success from Pre-Apprenticeship Programmes at Hart Learning + Development


At Hart Learning + Development, we are always delighted to see learners achieve their goals through their new qualifications and are proud to say they enjoy a positive experience too.


A great example is Dominique, an Early Years Inclusion Specialist with Hertfordshire County Council, who completed her Level 2 English and Level 1 and 2 Maths Functional Skills qualifications with Hart Learning + Development. She will now be taking her studies further through an undergraduate degree to help her pursue her career goals. She told us: “This course has closed a gap in my skill set for further development, which in turn supports the team/organisation. Passing my Level 2 and having the fantastic support from my tutor Teresa is the absolute highlight; she has been encouraging, supportive, and calm throughout my course. Nothing was too much trouble and she kept me going. A huge thanks to Teresa – you are a star!”
