Whether you already have someone in mind for the role, or need to recruit, ProCo provides a complete recruitment, training, assessment package.

Our commitment to you

ProCo has a well established history of helping businesses identify young talents as they progress on on their journey from enthusiastic apprentices to the business leaders of tomorrow. Over the years, we have worked with a range of companies, of all sorts of sizes, and can help make sure that when you hire an apprentice, it will have a long and lasting positive impact on your business. ProCo continues to deliver high quality education to it’s learners, and has a proud history of working in partnership with employers.

Having been put in touch with a number of learning providers that couldn’t assist the business, it was a great relief to deal with ProCo especially as this was our first time sourcing an apprentice.

ProCo provided clear and detailed knowledge of the process and the course we required. They were very understanding of our needs resulting in an enthusiastic apprentice starting their career with us.

During each stage of the process we received guidance to ensure that the experience for both the business and our apprentice was seamless.

I am confident that should we have another apprentice vacancy in the future that ProCo will be our first port of call, not only for the provision of the course, but in selecting the right candidate for the role. Simone Braybrook
