CSW Group works with businesses to help them create greater exposure to their job opportunities, align skills to needs more effectively, and support workforce development. We help young people to carve careers in developing sectors and help businesses to develop and harness the skills needed to grow their business sectors.

We can help businesses to navigate the, often complicated, world of Apprenticeship provision and the Apprenticeship levy. We ensure that businesses secure the Apprenticeship provision that is most appropriate to their needs via our network of highly-respected and trusted training providers.
Our current programmes through which we work with businesses:

  • Delivering a range of business-led enterprise activities in schools. We are always looking for enthusiastic, knowledgeable business people to get involved;
  • Work experience placements; and
  • Our unique STEM Ambassador programme, which facilitates relationships between schools and STEM businesses to increase awareness of / entry to employment in STEM.

Apprenticeship services

Our apprenticeship services aims to increase attainment levels of STEM skills for individuals aged 16-24 in employment through a personalised training programme. We promote and support the uptake of STEM-related apprenticeships at all levels, with a specific focus on businesses that have not previously offered an apprenticeship. We provide businesses with a single point of contact, providing impartial advice on apprenticeship reforms and changes to funding. We also provide businesses with an enhanced, impartial brokerage service to businesses to simplify the recruitment of apprentices.
