It's National Apprenticeship Week!

In the spirit of National Apprenticeship Week, both Rathbone Training and Intraining are proud to shine a spotlight on all the hardworking apprentices we’ve worked with in the past year. Since this time last February, Rathbone Training and Intraining have successfully placed a total of 710 young people into apprenticeships!


As one of the UK’s leading apprenticeship providers, we’re delighted to highlight some of our excellent achievements over the last year:

  • 1000 apprenticeship vacancies filled as of November 2018
  • Yearly repeat business with the Office of Nuclear Regulation due to the high quality of service we provide
  • A large number of apprentices placed in large organisations including Cortel, NHS, Bunzl, Total Processing, MDA and Chelmsford Council

Partnerships and Collaboration projects

Rathbone Training and Intraining have worked extremely hard on projects with large reputable companies as well as local communities over the past year including: Tesco, NHS, Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR), Health and Safety Executive (HHSE) and Bunzl.

Marking the 400th Apprenticeship Standard

In February, the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) officially approved their 400th apprenticeship standard! This marks a fantastic milestone for apprenticeships in the UK and shows the impact that they can have on anybody aspiring to reach their goals as well as to the businesses they serve. Education Secretary Damian Hinds said:

“We are seeing the apprenticeship system in this country come of age, with leading employers waking up to the benefits apprenticeships can bring.”

The standard approved was for the Fashion Studio assistant apprenticeship, which came at a perfect time for the London Fashion Week but also for us to celebrate the 400th apprenticeship standard on National Apprenticeship Week! New apprenticeship standards are developed by the trailblazer group of employers with support from the IfATE.


Here are just some of the testimonials from our current apprentices and employers we’re working with.

“Intraining are really great, they really prioritise communication and respond instantaneously if I reach out to them. We have multiple skills tutors here that are dedicated to our site, and they are very helpful, kind and professional - it’s been great working with them. Karen (skills tutor) is very inspiring and I guess in some ways, coupled with the apprenticeship, it’s contributed to me realising my goal and focussing on furthering my career.

- Ryan Allen, Business Administration Apprentice at Luton & Dunstable University Hospital Trust

“What we really like about Intraining is that they are happy to question whether something is working or not. If they don’t find that it is, then they tweak it and have a look at it again to make sure it does and that it feels right for the learners. They are very reflective in their approach to training, in order to make sure that they meet the learner needs.”

- Chris Harper, Vocational Facilitator at Luton & Dunstable University Hospital Trust

“I’ve had so much support from everyone I’ve come into contact with at Intraining. I’ve found the learning resources extremely beneficial and I think the progress I’ve been achieving speaks for itself.”

- Emily Long, Digital Marketing Apprentice at Tall

“Intraining have been great to deal with, Emily (apprentice) seems to have made great progress with her course and all communication we've had with her tutors has been very professional. I would recommend Intraining to anyone thinking about using them. In fact, I think we already have!

- Behrooz Saeed, Co-Director at Tall
