Ginger Nut Training is an apprenticeship training provider with a difference.
As a training provider, we are also an employer, which makes us a bit different to your usual training provider.
In the past few years we have trained over 30 of our own staff using apprenticeships, some of whom have gone to senior roles within the company. You can see one of our directors in a former NAS video attached (please note some of the grant info is out of date).
We used this unique insight to launch Ginger Nut Training, where we work closely with clients to cater for the needs of apprentices and employers to ensure that everyone gets the maximum return from the time that they invest.
We deliver apprenticeship training across various areas including marketing, business administration, management, IT and customer service.
We provide only the most up-to-date apprenticeship standards and frameworks to ensure that you or your apprentice receives a quality qualification that helps them to move forward in the industry.
We design and deliver high quality apprenticeships around your business needs. We care passionately about the needs of both employers and learners and uniquely understand the commercial needs of companies who hire an apprentice.
Each year we help lots of public and private sector organisations across the country grow the skills of their workforce through apprenticeships.
Our apprenticeships are ideal for new and existing staff across a range of sectors.
With local and national partners, we tackle employability and skills gaps, believing in the power of workforce development.
From large companies to small business, from GP practices to foundation trusts we are a training provider that cares about providing the best.
We are engaged with key stakeholders nationwide within the apprenticeship field and are trend setters in best practice.
We are listed as a main provider, have a direct SME contract and we are even an End Point Assessment Organisation
Who we are
Ginger Nut Media, our sister company is a well-known business for endorsing and hiring in association with the government’s apprenticeship scheme. The company won The Apprenticeship Newcomer Employer of the Year 2014 award with Virgin Trains Newcomer SME of the Year. This was accompanied later on with further top 100 awards and national recognition of its work during 2015. These awards were received with great pride and are a credit to the hard work of our staff and apprentices and provided the spring board for the launch of Ginger Nut Training.
What we do
Ginger Nut Training provides apprenticeship training in a variety of roles for all businesses. We are different because we passionately believe in providing the best and have been in the shoes of our employers hiring apprentices. We love to see people given opportunity and passionately believe in the work we do.
We don’t just want to run apprenticeships; we want to share our passion with others and to spark interest in apprenticeships in all generations. Our ambition is to bring real-life experience to the table and to share sizeable, but realistic, ambitions with people to help them build their future. We are devoted to our learners, employers and staff and want nothing but the best experience for all.
Staff on site at GNT, from the MD onwards, demonstrated considerable dedication and motivation to the success of the apprenticeship scheme and throughout the assessment showed commitment and enthusiasm for training and the marketing industry.
Having tried to recruit apprentices and not receiving the calibre of applications we’d envisaged, it was a pleasure to work with the Ginger Nut Training team. The volume and quality of applications enabled us to select candidates with the potential to deliver new skills internally. The GNT team come highly recommended.
They really look after you and you get brilliant support. I wasn’t sure what to expect but everything was explained well and I am happy I got the opportunity with this company.
