Mentoring and coaching

91╣┘═°is here to support not only apprentices and trainees, but their host employers too. We understand that balancing work, training and personal lives can be difficult for some, especially if they are new to the workforce. These issues can also have an impact on employers.

ThatÔÇÖs why we provide mentoring, pastoral care and coaching for yourself and others within your business. We can support you and offer advice, based upon our years of experience, about how to create an even better business by making the most of your apprentice or trainee experience.
