Our relationship with the MOD began back in 1998. Today, we have approximately 7000 soldiers enrolled on Apprenticeship schemes and 139 staff delivering these programmes throughout the UK and Europe. These schemes are funded through a national contract between the Army and the Education & Skills Funding Agency, with The Colleges' Partnership being contracted as deliverer.
Current Apprenticeship schemes include:
Apprenticeship in Telecommunications
Apprenticeship in Engineering Maintenance and Installation (Electrical)
Apprenticeship in Warehousing and Storage
Advanced Apprenticeship in Telecommunications
- Advanced Apprenticeship in Engineering Maintenance and Installation (Electrical)
Apprenticeship in Public Services
Advanced Apprenticeship in Clinical Health Care
Higher Apprenticeship in Intelligence Operations
Our staff enrol service personnel onto the schemes as they pass through trade training. When service personnel reach their Regiments or Battalions they are met by a Team Leader who arranges for apprentices to complete their learning plans. Plans are negotiated in close conjunction with Army personnel in light of the soldiers’ commitments in the Regiment and elsewhere in the world.
We also deliver professional qualifications:
- Teacher Training
- Quality Assurance
- Coaching and Mentoring
Throughout the programme of study learners are fully supported by qualified and experienced staff committed to learner centred learning, aided by our Virtual Learning Environment.
Staff are currently located throughout the UK, Northern Ireland, Cyprus and Germany.
Centres are equipped with the latest technology for delivering Functional Skills (English, Mathematics and Information Communication Technology). Team leaders and assessment staff deployed within the Field Army represent The Colleges' Partnership and their responsibilities include coordinating local activities, quality assurance, meeting contract requirements and delivering training and assessment.
