Welcome to the Solent Apprenticeship Hub

The Solent Apprenticeship Hub offers free and impartial advice to organisations of any size regarding apprenticeship training. We can help organisations with finding the most suitable training provider or choosing the relevant apprenticeship for them. We also offer guidance on funding apprenticeship training, levy transfers and sourcing apprentices. Most importantly, we tailor our advice to YOUR organisation, as we know that what suits one business may not be the best solution for another.

The Solent Apprenticeship Hub can also help individuals find apprenticeship training and answer any questions regarding applications or finding apprenticeship opportunities in your area.

We are a partnership between Southampton City Council, Portsmouth City Council, Hampshire County Council, The Education Business Partnership, The Local Enterprise Partnership, The Association of Learning Providers for Hampshire and Isle of Wight, Solent University, The University of Portsmouth and the Chamber of Commerce. We are part funded by the European Social Fund.
