Having supported the training requirements of businesses for almost 40 years, YMCA Training has established itself as the hallmark for quality in the apprenticeship training sector.
Apprenticeships are a cost effective way for businesses to develop their new and existing staff and hire fresh talent, while giving someone a life-changing opportunity. As a leading national charity, we have a proven track record of successfully training thousands of apprentices every year who go on to build rewarding and fulfilling careers.
Among the portfolio of qualifications available at YMCA Training are Level 2 apprenticeships in Horticulture, Golf Green Keeping and
Sports Turf Operative. Having recently changed from ‘frameworks’ to ‘standards’, these programmes are now written by employers and academics within the sector which means they’re specifically designed to meet your needs as an employer.
We are proud to recruit dedicated apprentices to golf clubs, nature industries and sports organisations all over the UK, including delivering sports turf apprentices to Manchester United Football Club for 29 years.
Apprenticeships are open to anyone aged between 16 and 65 and – what some employers don’t realise – are an excellent way to upskill existing staff. Not only will this show a real investment in staff, but it will also help employee motivation and staff retention.
At YMCA Training, we recognise the commitment which employers make when they engage an apprentice and we fully understand the processes around funding and the potential challenges. This is why we are able to offer high-quality training and support regarding contributions and funding, and why we invest fully in assisting employers with accessing available funding options.
We are delighted to be exhibiting at SALTEX 2018, and if you want to find more about how apprenticeships can benefit your organisation, come and find us for a chat at stand K190e.
