AP4U - apprenticeships and funded training

Apprenticeships and funded training

Read what our employers are saying about us:

“AP4U’s work with our organisation has made a significant difference in what we can now offer our clients. We’ve been able to reach areas of the business we could not reach before thanks to the dedication and hard work of AP4U. We’ve seen a difference in activity since we were able to offer a variety of courses to our clients. The diversity of the courses mean we now have something for every part of our organisation.”
I hope this does justice to the great work AP4U does, Best wishes Barnardos

“AP4U keep us regularly informed about funding to ensure our team has the opportunity to complete various training at no cost. AP4U in my opinion are very helpful with what they do and are on hand to help at any time”

“I am the main contact with AP4U and we quickly developed a good working relationship. They provided me with plenty of information and assurances, especially as we had some unfortunate experiences with other training providers in the past. However, AP4U has been extremely helpful in answering any queries. The process of singing up staff for training has always been easy and the assessors have been very supportive to the staff for the duration of the course. We have been extremely impressed with the service provided.”
