We have over 60 years of apprenticeship experience.
Working within the learning and development business space, specialising

Delivering return on investment.
We play a key role in working within the Apprenticeship and Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector as advisors, influencers and subject matter experts working on the principle that organisations “don’t know what they don’t know”.
We do this within a measurable impact model whereby the costs of engaging with Seren Skills are recovered through the savings and impact of what we provide by way of deliverables
We are at the forefront of engaging with providers and employers to make sense and implement the correct learning and development solutions, underpinned by focusing on apprenticeship opportunities

Enabling key management reports to focus on the relevant information to maximise return on investment and compliance.

Uploading the ILR using a variety of systems available to training providers from the free ILR tool to products such as PICs and Aptem. The Seren Skills team can support with ESFA Compliance and internal audit of ongoing activity.
We are currently working with clients to support them with the following systems such as: aptem, Power House, Bud, OneFile.
Creating a strategic partnership with apprenticeships and businesses.
Apprenticeships, traditionally been seen as a vocational route to employment or the certification of skills, and not as a route to train and certificate professional careers. To that end, many employers have been missing out on the use of apprenticeships as part of a holistic people strategy for their business. The apprenticeship sector is therefore playing catch up in this regard whilst also having to break down “rite of passage” stigma’s that is found in some professions.
We work with employers to match learning and development commercial solutions and apprenticeships across the organisation against relevant standards for employees and applicants forming a strategic partnership.
