Learning with us
Before you start your formal training, you’ll attend an induction day at one of our training centres. You will go through an overview of your chosen apprenticeship programme and be given details of what dedicated support is in place for you throughout your learning journey.
Your programme modules be delivered through a combination of face-to-face classroom sessions, group remote sessions and distance learning using our Virtual Learning Environment. A Technical Specialist and a Progress Management Co-ordinator will be assigned to support you throughout your apprenticeship with 4-weekly contact sessions.
Once you’ve completed all your training, you’ll undertake an end point assessment which will be graded Pass, Merit, Distinction or Fail.
If you pass your EPA you can choose to continue in employment or go on to further study. If you fail don’t worry – you can re-sit and try again!
Help and support
We’re here to help. We provide appropriate information, advice and guidance (IAG) from the moment you approach us about a vacancy, to the moment you complete EPA.
At any point during the apprenticeship information, advice and guidance can be requested by contacting your Progress Management Co-ordinator who will direct you to the best person to provide you with the most up-to-date and relevant advice possible – whether this be one of the Estio team or with another industry specialist.
Alternatively, you can contact us with your request for IAG by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If we can’t give you the information that you need, we will endeavour to put you in touch with an organisation that can.
Spread across the country in Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and London, our training centres have been developed with learning in mind.
In all of our multi-classroom centres you’ll learn in classes of no more than 26 so that you can be sure to get the support and attention of your trainer when you need it. With your own individual computer, you can access your OneFile e-portfolio as you learn so that you can keep track of your progress and achievements. If you choose to study remotely, each centre uses the latest interactive technology and has a dedicated trainer suite for live webinar sessions.
During the day you can relax and catch up with your fellow learners in our comfortable breakout areas which come complete with refreshment facilities. All our centres are conveniently located close to the city centre with excellent transport links.
