3aaa delivers real Apprenticeships and bucks the trend

At 3aaa we are focused on delivering life changing opportunities for young people.  We are currently finding more than 100 young people jobs on a weekly basis – and these are typically new jobs with employers who haven’t employed an Apprentice before.

We believe that Apprenticeships are about job creation and the delivery of outstanding teaching, learning and assessment.  Ofsted agreed with us when they inspected us last year and gave us a Grade 1 Outstanding in all areas of the work that we do.

So we were disappointed to see the report from the Institute of Education and the Nuffield Foundation this week that said that in many cases, government money for Apprenticeship is being used to support the training of adults who are over the age of 25 and people who are already in work where their employers really should pay for their training.

Thankfully through our 33 Academies we are finding small and medium sized employers on a daily basis who want to recruit new talent into their businesses and want to employ some of the amazing young people who are currently in our Applicant pool.  We currently have more than 800 Apprenticeship vacancies that we are recruiting for across the country and more than 1,200 young people who have been interviewed by our Academy staff and are ‘job ready’.

The 300 people who work for 3aaa will continue to get up every morning to deliver the 100+ life changing opportunities that we are generating on a weekly basis – we’ll also keep lobbying government to ensure that an Apprenticeship is really about job creation and the delivery of outstanding teaching learning and assessment and that the finite pot of government funding is not spent on training that employers should be paying for themselves.

You’ll now find a 3aaa Academy in Bedford, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Croydon, Derby, Gloucester, Guildford, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Maidstone, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Northampton, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Peterborough, Reading, Romford, Sheffield, Southampton, Swindon, Tamworth, Warwick, Watford, Worcester and York.

Academies will soon be opening in Blackburn, Bradford, Exeter, Hull, Middlesbrough, Plymouth, Stoke and Wolverhampton.
