It's a privilege to be part of an organisation that is the go to provider of apprenticeships and the top education and training company to work for.
Educ8 Training was established in 2004 by Chairman, Colin Tucker, to provide fully funded apprenticeship programmes and training across Wales. We are passionate about lifelong learning and are one of ten prime contract holders with Welsh Government, responsible for delivering fully funded apprenticeships.
Supporting learners and employers from SMEs to global multi-national organisations, our success has led to us growing considerably. We now employ nearly 300 staff.
We listen to the marketplace, making sure the apprenticeships we offer meet the needs of employers and learners. With the acquisition of Haddon Training and Aspire 2Be, Educ8 Training Group offers learning and training opportunities in Wales and across the UK.
As no business or learner is the same, we tailor our support to maximise the quality of our service delivery. For businesses, we guide you through every step – from advertising your apprenticeship vacancy to supporting your training and development needs to fill your skills gaps. If you’re a learner, you’ll benefit from our Estyn-recognised, blended learning model. This allows you to learn flexibly and fit your training around your home or work life. You’ll be supported by our industry expert trainer coaches on a one-to-one basis, to help you boost your career.
Our people mean everything to us. It would be impossible to achieve the successes we experience without our dedicated workforce. We’re proud to hold Investors in People platinum accreditation and to have been listed in the Sunday Times ‘Top 100 Best Companies To Work For’. In 2022, Educ8 was recognised as #1 ‘Best Organisation To Work For in Education and Training’, and we also made the ‘Top 5 Best Mid-Sized Companies To Work For’.
Educ8 is run with an ethos driven by the values of honesty, integrity, respect and positivity. This runs in parallel with a passion for ensuring our learners, employers and staff reach their full potential.
In 2022, in recognition of the commitment and hard work of our staff, we implemented an Employee Ownership Trust scheme. Our staff are now majority shareholders and collectively own 51 percent of the business – ensuring that our employees are always at the heart of our business.
