Our nationally recognised 360˚ apprenticeship programme is designed to meet the needs of the business, the industry and the individual. We facilitate a series of stimulating training programmes using 1-2-1 mentoring, on-the-job training and our employee assistance programme.
Our all-round approach to our apprenticeship training is covered by the following three programmes
Our Employee Assistance Programme offers apprentices support with personal issues which enable young people to succeed in their courses and career development.
Our apprentices are also involved in community investment programmes including ‘Back to Work’ and ASBD (Anti-Social Behaviour Diversionary) activities, mentoring and the regeneration of unused public amenities.
This syllabus progresses trainees to NVQ Level 2 in Maths, English, Information Communication Technology and Employability Skills prior to formal accredited training. This significantly reduces failure rates later on in the programme. We enlist the services of local training providers (such as “TowerSkills”) who provide the necessary tailored training. If the trainee has little or no academic qualification, they are enrolled onto the Breyer Group Pre-apprenticeship Scheme. Funded via various government initiatives, Breyer Group is able to provide training in Key skills in literacy and numeracy, starting from Entry Level 1, up to Level 2.
This course supports candidates working towards a formal qualification within a two-to-three year period. Successful trainees will achieve an NVQ Level 2-3 qualification and two-to-three years of paid on-site work experience. They also receive mentoring from trade professionals who help develop the skills of the apprentice, significantly enhancing the confidence of the candidate and their chance of employment. We provide apprenticeship opportunities in a wide range of roles, for example, at Tower Hamlets Homes we currently provide apprenticeships in:
The Breyer Group post-apprenticeship programme increases the possibility of the candidate entering long-term sustainable employment either with the Breyer Group or our supply chain. Upon completion of training, the apprentice then becomes a “Trainee”.
We also offer professional support for those wishing to become self-employed, covering all financial and start-up topics that candidates will need to succeed as a self-employed tradesperson.
Candidates can also enter Higher Education to study a full-time degree.
