Local Apprenticeship Providers

Hear from real employers from the local area who have worked directly with Stephenson College.

JA Ball Ltd.

Stephenson College has been assisting and guiding JA Ball Ltd for some years with our training requirements for apprentices.

We have developed a good working relationship with them and have always found them to be extremely helpful and approachable.

They offer well structured training programmes which give the students opportunities to study for nationally recognised qualifications alongside their fundamental practical on-site experiences.

The teachers always give our apprentices good instruction and advise them well, we have no hesitation to recommending Stephenson College to all of our aspiring apprentices.

We look forward to continuing our working partnership in the future.

Form Manufacturing

We are a joinery business based in Loughborough and have used the services of the college for the past 6 years. Their services in both providing and training Apprentices has been excellent at all times and their communication and feedback have been valuable in allowing both us and the apprentices to achieve certification and development.

Their on-site machine shop and facilities are first class and the knowledge and support from the tutors are excellent The assessment visits to us are timely and always provide worthwhile feedback and development notes for us to monitor and the student`s to aspire to .

Their support teams have always given professional and relevant advice .They certainly do look to support the student at every level and are very aware, and take note, of individual circumstance and act to help them at every opportunity.

So in all areas from recruitment of the correct students, to enrolment, study support and ongoing development I have always found all the areas willing and ready to help.

I would highly recommend them to any prospective employer considering creating links with this excellent college.
