Research shows that apprenticeships are not just helping employers to build a loyal, skilled workforce, but enabling them to attract new business. 76% of apprentice employers polled say they promote their apprenticeship credentials when pitching for new business or talking about their company. A third of all the employers questioned said they are more likely to choose a supplier or partner if they offer apprenticeships.
Havering College of Further & Higher Education will guide you and your apprentice through the entire duration of the apprenticeship – it’s a free recruitment and consultancy service and the support we provide is second to none.
We meet every applicant before putting them forward to ensure their suitability for the role and the college course. Once you find your apprentice, you will get your own personal worked based learning coordinator assigned to your company who will visit you every 10 weeks to conduct reviews, monitor progress and set objectives.
The role of the employer is to support the apprentice in gathering evidence that they are learning and developing, and building a portfolio or present their work in a certain way.
The Havering College Apprenticeships team bring a wealth of experience and knowledge and are up to date with the latest legalisations set by the Government. We also offer industry days, employment fairs and work experience placements. We work with employees on a national scale, such as Ford and Merlin Entertainments, as well as local schools and authorities.
The Apprenticeships team consists of recruiters, teachers, counsellors, assessors, HR specialists and industry experts to create a harmonious experience for all involved.

Summer seems like an eternity away and university professors have already scientifically pre-empted that Monday 15th January will be “Blue Monday”, the most miserable day of the year. Does this 12 monthly situation sound familiar?
It’s drilled into us that January has to be the month of low expectations, self-berating and cutting out vices – but it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. Here at Havering College, we have found plenty of reasons to be cheerful! Namely our wide range of adult education courses available to start in this month.
So whether you’re looking to get qualified, upskill, change career or for some personal development, you don’t need to wait until September to start your studies.
The new year is the perfect time to take stock of your life. So rather than make New Year’s resolutions that will be broken – take control of and shape your future by signing up for higher education.
We are holding an open evening on the 18th January 2018 for anyone considering starting a course in January. You will have the opportunity to find out about the different courses we run, the career paths they can lead to, meet our inspirational tutors and take a tour of Havering College and its facilities.
