When it comes to your business, we believe in you and what you are building for the future.
When you choose to employ an apprentice with us you are investing in your company and giving someone the opportunity to learn, train and develop with you, for you. Our aim is to help you achieve your goals by supporting and guiding you and your chosen learner on this rewarding journey.
With over twenty years’ experience in training, we know the power of vocational training and how valuable it can be to you. Our training programmes are all based at your place of work, with no day release, no time lost and an absolute dedication to ensuring that your learner develops the practical skills needed to work for you and thrive in the industry.
- Our recruitment process
Haddon Training offers a FREE recruitment service and there’s no finder’s fee for placing an apprentice. We advertise on different platforms and can reach up to 300,000 eager young people looking for apprenticeships. We carefully match our applicants to your requirements and pre-screen them to check they are eligible and suit the specifications of the job role.
A member of our team will work with you to ascertain what kind of learner you are looking for:
- What level of experience is required.
- What the job role of the apprentice will be
We will then advertise that position for you free of charge on our advertising channels.
Applicants will then apply and our expert team will call each one to assess their suitability. If we feel they have the appropriate experience for the position, we’ll then give the candidate your details to arrange an interview.
Once you have chosen your learner, we will organise an enrolment with one of our qualified Trainer-Coaches, who will come out and sign the learner up to the relevant programme.
Our vocationally experienced Trainer-Coaches have a vast wealth of experience from working in the industry. They are experts in their field and know how to help learners achieve in supporting your business.
For all our apprentices, a designated Trainer-Coach will visit the learner on-site every 4-6 weeks to coach, support and mentor them throughout the programme.
Our Trainer-Coaches will also want to meet you regularly to discuss the learner’s progress, help develop them in areas where their skills may need improving and ensure that everything is on track.

All our staff recognise that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility irrespective of the role they undertake or whether their role has direct contact or responsibility for learners or not. Haddon Training aims to create a culture of vigilance.
We abide by all safeguarding legislation and have a Safeguarding Officer available at all times. You can contact our Safeguarding Officer on 07795 841932 or email email@example.com.
