ABM Training is a specialist training provider supporting the schools and education sector through our programme of Teaching Assistant, Early Years and Business Administration 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 Education and Schools apprenticeships 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 £250 towards the cost of training your staff. Government will contribute up to £4750.
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.

Contract Management and Reporting
How do you know if your employees are being well trained, learning new skills and applying those in role at work ? How do you know if your apprentices are on target and likely to complete their programme on time ? What grade will they get ?
