ABM Training is a specialist training provider with a great track record in the delivery of Early Years and Young People apprenticeships. Over the past 13 years we’ve trained more than 3000 employees. We offer a full suite of qualifications and apprenticeships that are funded through the Governments apprenticeship levy scheme. ABM Early Years and Young People apprentices not only complete an apprenticeship they gain formal qualifications and English and maths awards.
We deliver all of this using the Apprenticeship Levy scheme. As an employer you’ll pay no more than £300 towards the cost of training your staff. Government will contribute up to £5700.
85% of ABM apprentices achieve either merit or distinction grades and we were fully inspected by OFSTED in September 2021. OFSTED’s detailed report concluded that we are a GOOD provider in everything that we do.
