What employers say:
“When we were choosing a training provider to deliver our new apprenticeship programme, we only considered those that held the People 1st gold standard. We knew it would give us another level of quality assurance on top of simply being listed on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers, so we insisted that they had to have that stamp of approval.”
Tracey Anderson, Performance and Development Manager, Center Parcs
"Being assured of quality is really key. For us, not having tons of experience of working with apprenticeship providers, the People 1st gold standard was a real seal of confidence so we knew we didn't have to worry about that. It allowed us to focus on finding the right cultural fit for our organisation."
Carly Fish, Skills and Education Lead, Nando's
