Enrolment, Studying and the Job Placement Process

We have made the whole process as simple as possible.

To start with, you will go through an onboarding process. Here we will meet for a no obligation face-to-face consultation, which will enable us both to have the chance to ask questions we may have and then make decisions accordingly.    

You will then undertake our induction process. This is where we have the chance to go through the training schedules with you and discuss the locations, while preparing you to start your training.

Once you have finished your training programme in full (including practical labs, assessments and vendor exams (which will take around 6 months)), you will start to work through the recruitment element of the programme, where you will prepare to receive a job placement offer.

This process includes: 

  •    Attending our recruitment workshops
  •    Participating in our technical mock interviews
  •    Attending the ‘meet employer’ days

  •    Receive your job placement offer and prepare to start in your new career

As this is a combination of training and hands-on practical work, you will have the certifications needed in this industry, but you’ll also gain the confidence required to succeed.

Job Placement

After you have completed the training side of your programme, you will then move into the job preparation section. Here you will need to attend a series of our ‘meet an employer’ events, which are part of our recruitment process. As we have an excellent pool of employer connections, covering a wide range of different sized organisations, we are able to introduce you to the employers that we feel you will not only merge well with but also have the most success with. These employers are looking for trained, talented individuals, like you and we will not stop until you have secured a job. 

Throughout this process you have an excellent, unique, opportunities to have your own CV placed in front of the right employers at the right time, helping you to gain a work experience placement or full-time job. If not, the recruitment team will continue to present you to our pool of employers and support you through interviews until you are successful.
