What employers need to know


Why a Seta apprenticeship programme will work for your business...

Seta is a long-established, trusted training provider and boasts a strong track record of delivering for high profile companies, many of which are household names across the globe.

Why? Because we understand the businesses we work with, we’re responsive to their needs and as a not-for-profit organisation, we always have employers’ interests at the heart of what we do.

Apprenticeships are a positive, practical and cost effective investment for your company and training your apprentices with Seta will produce long-term benefits for your business, allowing it to develop a skilful and highly qualified workforce, while nurturing talent and practical skills in the next generation. 

What’s more, apprentices can bring with them enthusiasm, dedication, loyalty, and new ideas, which will help your company to innovate, grow and become more competitive.

The training we offer is tailored to the needs of your business, teaching your specific methods and processes which, in turn, reduces overall training and recruitment costs, and provides a financial return for your investment.

Our engineering apprenticeships provide a high level of training, delivered by qualified, highly experienced staff, in our own state-of-the-art workshops in Washington, North East England.  This enables ‘hands-on’ learning and means the students acquire practical skills for use in industry.

In addition, our business and professional apprenticeships – which cover administration, customer service, team leading, and management – enable you to take on apprentices in a range of roles, and build your workforce for the future.

We will help you prepare your apprentices for a professional working environment, instil them with a good worth ethic and help them to mature as individuals and colleagues.

We offer in-house assessment and technical certification, helping to ease your own workload, and will work closely with you throughout the apprenticeship process, providing guidance and support.

We will work with employers to create a flexible, bespoke apprenticeship programme which is best for your business.

Seta is officially rated as a ‘good’ training provider by Ofsted. To read more about the standards of our training read our latest Ofsted report here.
