  • As a business owner I require a very high standard from anyone who works at my company and Stoke on Trent College have been able to fulfil this request. Like many industry professionals, I was coming across more and more people who had gained the relevant qualifications but couldn’t deliver what I needed them to do.  As a former student of Stoke on Trent College I approached the College because I know the teaching staff are serious about what they do and I can rely on the standards of those who come and work alongside my full-time staff. The relationship I have with Stoke on Trent College is very important to me. I strongly feel it helps nurture the future of beauty therapists coming into the industry and maintain high standards. They know exactly what I’m looking for and we share the same vision.  At Bespoke Beauty we are serious about what we do and so are the team at Stoke on Trent College.

  • Over 50% of our team have come through the apprenticeship programme and continued to develop their careers with Smart Assessor. They have helped our company innovate and grow, they are digitally skilled and use modern technologies to reduce the cost and time of delivering client projects in a fresh and innovative way. I am absolutely convinced that without our apprentices Smart Assessor wouldn’t be the amazing success story it is.

  • Port Vale FC Foundation would highly recommend the services provided by Stoke-on-Trent College and all the team behind the recruitment of apprenticeships. We have recently been involved with the process and found the whole team extremely helpful and professional throughout. We were first attracted to the college through the new institute of sports and also the college is our nearest provider with the current links already it made sense to extend the partnership we have in more depth. The support we received throughout was fantastic with the flexible work around the specific needs of our business enabling us to recruit the ideal course and candidate for the role. The dedication of the support from the moment we got in touch, information and guidance throughout and involvement on the day was beyond the expectations we had. All the above prompted us to use the services again and take a second apprenticeship on board.
