We also understand the operational demands that investing and implementing an apprenticeship strategy across your organisation brings.
That is why so many public sector employers put their confidence in us to support them with their apprenticeship aims, right from sourcing and selection, programme contextualisation, flexible delivery models, right through to EPA readiness and measuring impact within the organisation.
At Paragon Skills, we’ve been successfully delivering apprenticeships nationally for over 20 years’, delivering programmes across key specialisms such as Professional Services as well as both clinical and non-clinical Health and Social Care solutions since we formed in 1998.
We’re proud to be one of the larger private training providers, delivering high quality, client-focused, and industry-leading apprenticeship provision.
We are an employer-led organisation. We have created very strong relationships with our apprentices and employers who all contribute to shaping and designing our services. We actively encourage our apprentices and employers to be involved in the design of our qualifications and find this strengthens relationships and increases the mutual drive for success in apprentices. This also ensures we are offering a curriculum that will support local and national labour market demand, promoting skills development for employees to create better efficiencies and overall effectiveness.
Paragon Skills works with a wide range of public sector clients or varying sizes whereby programme cohorts consist of existing staff as well as newly recruited apprentices. A huge benefit of Paragon Skills is our flexible infrastructure and delivery model which allows us to deliver training to apprentices and employers of all sizes, across every region of the country, whether this be cohort or single learners.
Paragon Skills prides itself on developing a collaborative approach with our public sector partners in order to help them achieve their key strategic apprenticeship initiatives. This includes:
We also have a public sector partnership team who have years of experience both working for and within varying public sector organisations, so we know first-hand how to support your needs and more importantly exceed your expectations.
Whether this be flexing delivery and engagement in line with demanding shift patterns and peak periods or multi-site programme consistency and quality
Our team support you from day 1 to understand your programme needs & aspirations as well as challenges and preferred delivery approach.
