We started working with Remit in 2019 when we went through a formalised tender process. What really stood out to us about Remit was the partnership they were keen to create with us, their quality marks, the support they offer throughout the programmes and also their specialised knowledge of our industry. We were also impressed by their online resources that we felt our learners could really benefit from during their time on programme.
Working with Remit we feel we have benefitted from their quick reaction times in implementing feedback we’ve given them. At ABF we seek to continually improve and Remit really matched this ethos and have been full of ideas and inspiration of how we can add to the programme to give our colleagues the best experience.
We are now using apprenticeships across all of our business functions on a rolling basis as we have seen some excellent results. In particular, our learners on the Team Leader programme have been able to come together from different businesses within the ABF group for workshops, to share best practise and network.
Overall we have seen some great, tangible results from our Apprenticeship programme. The programmes have been designed so learners are immediately applying their new knowledge in the workplace. We have some learners being supported by Remit to work on real, live projects so we are seeing the impact of the apprenticeship scheme in action.
