The benefits of an apprenticeship

We pride ourselves on offering a salary to apprentices significantly higher than the national apprenticeship rate in recognition of the value and benefit our apprentices bring to the business.

You will have a dedicated mentor who will offer constant on-hand advice and support ensuring you are happy and settled.  

You will spend 80% of your apprenticeship on the job, learning everything you’ll need to know to progress. You’ll be hands-on with our teams, learning from the team and developing your skills at our Stourport office.

We have also developed an effective training plan tailored to the needs of both the organisation and our apprentices, part of which is comprehensive additional in-house training, delivered at OGL’s cost. This gives all apprentices high-level, often bespoke and sought-after learning opportunities to equip them both during and after their apprenticeship.
