A true partnership for success
At Paragon Skills we think working in partnership with you, the employer is paramount to learner success. We will work closely with you throughout the apprenticeship planning process and we are confident that we can exceed your expectations when it comes to delivering a true end-to-end apprenticeship partnership.
Putting the needs of each individual at the heart of the programme will be key to the success of our partnership, whilst still embedding your organisational strategy, culture, vision & values to ensure all interventions are fit for purpose and achieve a common goal and purpose. We believe that a blended and contextualised approach to apprenticeship delivery is fundamental.
All our Personal Tutors have come from the sectors they teach in, and they, therefore, understand the challenges you are facing. Apprenticeships really do offer a positive opportunity to improve your business, to attract new talent, train your staff, improve retention and to ensure that you have a qualified and committed team to deliver the best to your customers, and when we all work collaboratively then everyone benefits.
We firmly believe that if it does not make a difference, then it’s not worth doing.
How we work with you
Our team will understand your people development objectives, plus your mission, vision, values and
culture to ensure apprenticeships are linked to your career progression pathways.
Engagement and on-boarding
Once your programme is designed, your dedicated Client Engagement Manager will work with you to engage your existing employees, or attract new talent to the business. They will also lead the on-boarding of each learner, building close relationships within the learners’ team, and assessing any additional needs each learner has (e.g. functional skills).
In this phase, our teams develop your tailored apprenticeship programme identifying effective delivery methods, desired outcomes and opportunities to enrich the course content.
Your employees will have their own Personal Tutor who, depending on the delivery methods, will regularly meet at the employee’s place of work, or at one of our academies. They will be available throughout the course to teach, monitor progress and prepare learners for their end point assessment (EPA).
You receive full support from our experienced Client Solutions and Operations teams before, during and after each apprenticeship takes place. Our team will help you measure the impact of your apprenticeship programme, provide regular progress updates, invite you to exclusive events and ensure you are supported to maximise the benefits of apprenticeship for your business.
