Did you know?

77% of businesses who have trained apprentices believe it made their company more competitive – Welsh Governement.

Being a local company, we were familiar with Grŵp Llandrillo Menai and their good reputation for assisting students and employers. We contacted one of the Business Development Advisors who clearly explained how an apprenticeship worked and how it would be undertaken. They then assisted us to complete the paperwork and put a plan together for the new apprentice.

Taking on an apprentice has allowed our business to grow as we have increased productivity, improved our gallery and retail offerings, which we wouldn’t have had the resources to do so without the apprentice.

We use Grŵp Llandrillo Menai as our current apprenticeship provider. Apprenticeships allow our employees to complete their studies around their daily work.

We have a great working relationship with the Grŵp and their staff have a brilliant understanding of the care sector. They work around our schedules and the quality of the training is second-to-none.

Apprenticeships have really benefitted our organisation by increasing the number of trained employees we have.
