In 2020 we made great strides in our long-term goal to change our business model in line with government policy. Several years ago with the introduction of the Apprenticeship levy, it became clear that employers were demanding more from their training providers, asking for more intensive and bespoke training, whilst still demanding the same robust level of quality and funding compliance. All this in a complex, and changing, regulatory environment.
Through lockdown and into the winter, JGA continued to grow in-house delivery of apprenticeships while moving smoothly into online teaching and coaching in response to COVID19. JGA’s portfolio of directly delivered apprenticeship standards has grown to 19. Our client base of 150 organisations includes heavy hitters such as Amazon, the House of Commons, the National Lottery and Channel 4.
Since 2018, more employer clients have rated us as Good/ Excellent, reaching 86% in October 2020, whilst retention rates on most apprenticeships are excellent, over 90%.
