Coaching your apprentice
Managing your apprentices can be really time-consuming – especially if your line managers have not supported apprentices before.
We have a team of apprentice coaches whose job it is to look after your apprentice. It may sound a bit namby-pamby, but the truth is that apprentices often aren’t used to the pressures of having to cope with deadlines at work whilst having to complete assignments, tests and assessments. And older staff will find themselves having to do things that they haven’t done for 30 years. They won’t all need help all of the time but when they do our team steps in.
And somebody needs to keep track of all the work that your apprentices are doing so that you have an overall picture of progress and the impact of your scheme. Our team monitors the progress of each of your apprentices and liaise between you and the training provider, the line manager and the apprentice.
Where there are issues that are preventing an apprentice progressing as they should, we fix the problems.
How we help
- Thorough apprenticeship inductions / employment preparation
- Six weekly progression reviews
- Liaison between the apprentice, you and the training provider
- A telephone support desk for quick help
- Apprentice line manager training and support
- Career and progression planning
- Referrals to third party agencies for support if necessary
We’re here to assist and to make sure your apprentice is successful.
We help apprentices succeed
Supporting and coaching your apprentices will make a big difference to how successful they are and how quickly they can develop the new skills you want them to have.
We have a great team of experienced apprentice mentors who’ll do just that.
“From the moment LAC sourced and tailored the apprentice to suit the needs of our business through to the ultimate graduation and full time hiring of them, LAC have supported each part of the program at all key stages of their development. The mix of a broad yet detailed academic approach they take coupled with the learning in the real business environment is one of the most effective ways to grow young people within any industry.”
“We had a very positive experience working with The London Apprenticeship Company. From the outset we were provided with clear information and the support we received from the team was excellent. We found they had a wide range of well prepared and eager candidates and ultimately we found an apprentice who suited our needs very well. We are happy to report our apprentice has grown to be an integral part of business.”
“Our experience of LAC has been that they are professional, helpful and under-standing. We had never taken on an Apprentice before, Leo was our first, we needed extra staff and an Apprentice was a logical choice. We are delighted with our Apprentice and how things have turned out and taking on an apprentice again is something we will endeavour to do in the future”
Look Ahead Housing and Care
“Jade is great. She is an asset to the team. I’m glad we have her until she goes onto university and we wish her every success with her studies next year and her future career. I wish she wanted to pursue a career in Finance as she has just been brilliant, but I am sure the skills she has gained here will transfer over to any career she chooses... that’s the great thing about an apprenticeship. Ultimately, employers like experience, the apprenticeship gives young people a real opportunity to compete with more mature and experienced candidates because it gives them transferable skills....I think what also makes it work for the employer is LAC’s Apprentice Coordinators. Vanessa, Jade’s Apprentice Coordinator has been really helpful and has always been on hand whenever Jade needed advice, lessening any perceived “burden” on the employer.”
“Toby has made exceptional progress here at Printing.com Winchester and has definitely grown in confidence. Toby is always looking to learn new things. He has certainly fit into the company well, and I believe he has an exciting future ahead of him. I am happy that we have been able to help him on his way by taking him on as our apprentice.”
