About Us

Open 4 Apprenticeships is a FREE consultation process that provides organizations with a review of their readiness to successfully place apprentices within their workforce as part of their talent pipeline and gain all the benefits that employing apprentices will bring.

An Apprenticeship is an employer-driven model that combines on-the-job learning with related classroom instruction to increase skill level and economic mobility. Registered Apprenticeships are a proven solution for companies to recruit, train, and retain highly skilled workers—and it is a way to put employees on a career path that will encourage them to stay and advance their career with you.

Registered Apprenticeships are a proven system of workforce training that allows employers to "grow their own" workers. A registered apprenticeship means the program has met national and independent standards for quality and rigor. Registration tells prospective employees, customers, and suppliers that you invest in your workforce and that you believe your employees are your most important asset.

Traditionally Apprenticeships are thought of as something for tradesmen in construction and engineering but Open 4 Apprenticeships is opening up Registered Apprenticeships in new, modern industries and 21st Century job roles and is seeking employers in the following industries: Information Technology, Digital media, Cyber Security, Financial Services and Medical Assistants.

Open 4 Apprenticeship’s high-quality, free consultation includes providing planning support, vetting of job descriptions and a readiness check to start you on the path of hiring a Registered Apprentice.  You will join the community of organizations verified and certificated as Open 4 apprenticeships.  This will allow you to promote your company through the Open 4 Apprenticeships website and receive support in finding the training and employees right for you.
