"Inspiring Ambition & Widening Horizons"
We specialise in creating apprenticeship opportunities for young people entering the workforce for the first time. We recruit and employ each and every apprentice on behalf of the “host” client, enabling us to offer additional support and a better experience for both apprentice and client. We arrange the most suitable and appropriate apprenticeship training from one of our partner training providers.
We are a government approved Apprenticeship Training Agency (#SEL-104010517) and this means we have licence to employ apprentices on behalf of our clients and offer short-term placements. The "ATA Model" is highly effective and has many benefits for the host organisation, such as reduced employment liability, access to several high-quality training providers and additional support throughout the relationship.
Our mission statement is to inspire ambition and widen horizons. Our purpose is to create and nurture apprenticeship opportunities that might not otherwise exist for young people.
We are currently ranked 1st in the “Rate My Apprenticeship” Central and Greater London Regional Top Employers Award and 19th in the list of Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers 2021-22. Inspire ATA currently scores 9.4 as an employer with 27 reviews – click here to see them.
