Employer engagement is key to our apprenticeship support service.

"SupplyTrain helped us understand how to better communicate our apprenticeship offer to attract employers post reforms."

Employer engagement services that get results

SupplyTrain provides colleges, training providers and universities with employer engagement support that increases the number of apprentices you have on programme and employer satisfaction scores.

Since the introduction of financial contributions from employers for apprenticeship training, businesses are more keen to see a return on investment from their staff training – and quite rightly too – but this means a new way of working and demonstrating value.

SupplyTrain helps your employer engagement and marketing teams really understand the challenges of businesses in the UK today. We show you how to articulate your apprenticeship service so that employers know how your training will help their company grow.

In addition to growing your current apprenticeship offer, our consultants use labour market intelligence and employer research to identify apprenticeship programmes that are likely to grow significantly in the coming years. If you are a university new to apprenticeships or an existing provider looking to expand, having a thorough understanding of demand is vital to curriculum planning.

Use SupplyTrain for strategic advice on employer demand and business development in apprenticeships.

Common employer engagement and business development requests:


  • Proving return on training investment
  • Marketing apprenticeships to employers
  • Using employer feedback to improve provision
  • Future trends and opportunities
  • Tailoring training to levy-payers
  • Pricing strategy
  • Subcontracting rules and opportunities
  • Business development staff training
  • Aligning provision with LEP strategies
  • How to become an apprenticeship provider
