Recruiting an apprentice is a straightforward process, one that we are here to guide you through and make as simple, effective and time-efficient, as possible.

Our learners benefit from an innovative, Estyn-recognised, blended learning model that allows the freedom to learn flexibly: we know that it can sometimes be difficult to fit learning around home or work life, which is why we've made it as easy to do so as possible. Our industry expert Trainer Coaches will support you, on a one to one basis, to ensure you are able to achieve your best and acceler8 your career.

At Educ8, our people mean everything to us. Without our motivated and engaged workforce the company would not have achieved the accolades it has. We’re proud to have been listed in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies To Work For, for the last 6 years and named both Best Educational and Training Company and Best Mid-Sized Company to work For in the whole UK, 2021.

Educ8 is run with an ethos driven by the values of honesty, integrity, respect and positivity and a passion for ensuring our learners, employers and staff reach their full potential.

Founder and Chairman Colin Tucker has said:

“It is a privilege to have been part of a journey that began 16 years ago: an organisation employing 14 people has evolved into the go to provider of Apprenticeships. We’re lucky at Educ8 to have, what I think, is a world class Board of Directors. In Grant Santos I truly believe that I have a leader of the highest quality, his leadership during the pandemic has been exemplary and his commitment to the ethos of leading a values driven culture and environment are fundamental to our success. Grant is supported by his fellow board members, Steve Lewis CFO, Jude Holloway (Director of Operations), Kathryn Wing (Director of Quality), and Ann Nicholas (Customer Account Director). In my humble opinion, we really do have a Board of Directors that is sector-leading and genuinely reaching for the stars."
