what is a training provider? 

A training provider is the organisation who supplies the training element of an apprenticeship. They are generally a separate organisation from the employer, although larger employers sometimes also act as providers. Training providers work with employers to ensure apprentices learn the knowledge and skills necessary for an apprenticeship framework or standard.

 Training providers offering apprenticeships have good connections with local businesses and they can often assist in helping to find suitable apprenticeship vacancies.

 Local training providers can help support young people to overcome barriers they may be facing and can help source alternative training programmes for young people. Young people do not have to be attending a provision to contact a training provider and support from a training provider can be accessed throughout the year.

 You can also make contact if you are at another learning provision, such as a school or you are currently not in Education, Employment or Training to help you plan your post 16 options.

Bristol has a vast range of training providers that you can contact for further details. Full contact details can be found on the useful links page.
