Apprenticeship Assessor and Trainer in Lincolnshire
Great on boarding process in Birmingham giving you the skills to complete your job.
Can have a bit of a ‘fake’ everyone’s amazing at their job culture. You get praised even if mistakes are made.
Work is KPI driven, and you are encouraged to get new learners to sign up even if they may not be right for the apprenticeship. Goal posts always move.

Regional Trainer in South West
Very good employer
Plenty of training , support and direction. The company is genuinely concerned about the welfare of employees. This is a place where you feel that you can really make a contribution and make a difference.
Enjoyed the role, however the SMT are horrendous
The technology they use even though had teething problems was really good. They invest a lot on making sure you have the right tools to do the work. I have to say though it is a company that go by how much you brown nose and not by the quality or performance of individuals. They seem to do good things for you when the BeHeard survey is looming then when it passes they through more targets and put more pressure on you. This happened everytime. I was also informed by the staff at head office that for every bad glass door review they got they made the staff at head office do 5 good ones to fudge the scores. I would say that I worked with some great people and enabled me to learn through them. But at interview just make sure you are not sold a world of greatness because its hard work.

Crying and stress leading to depression will become the norm
Worked for the company for 3 years and during that time I felt so under pressure by management; working evenings and weekends to keep up. Work life balance is a joke, with no support when you ask for help. Forget about having a relaxing holiday, there will be about 500+ emails and a mess when you come back regardless of how much you prepare beforehand. Also don't get ill or take compassionate leave, no one will cover your time off. Employees working while ill is common place. If your face doesn't fit, you'll be gone quickly and defiantly no promotion for you. This company is only interested in the money! If they can find a way to make money they will, even at the cost of the employees. Covid showed their true colours - its all about the money. Working with twice the caseloads previously (normally 45, now 90+), with more being added very day. The 'bonus' for doing this, was you only had to work 4 days instead of 5 at the same wage as others on furlough. The targets moved everyday with not care to the learner and their learning experience. But don't think that while you have been brought back to work while others are on furlough that you're job is safe, it isn't.As a learner don't expect quality you're just a number. As an employee don't expect a salary that shows how hard you've worked, support from management and there is no such things as a good work-life balance. Crying, stress and suffering from depression will become the norm.
