Hampshire County Council Apprenticeship Case Study Fareport deliver various apprenticeships for Hampshire County Council including Level 3 Business Administrator, Level 3 Team Leader / Supervisor, Level 4 Associate Project Manager, Level 4 Commercial Procurement and Supply and Level 5 Operations / Department Manager. To their Health and Social care teams we offer courses at Level 2, 3, 4 and 5. We provide training for mentors to enable them to best support their apprentices. We support briefing days for all learners and managers interested in a programme and created a managers handbook to ensure buy in. Our account manager works very closely with the apprenticeships team to resolve any queries quickly, as well as providing regular progress reports and evaluations from all group training days. We created a bespoke report to monitor progress which Hampshire have now rolled out as a template to all other training providers. Due to our positive relationship, Hampshire have recommended us to other employers in their framework agreement such as schools, unitary authorities and the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service. They have also provided us with levy transfer funding to use with our SME employers in Hampshire which have enabled us to sign up 50+ learners over the last 6 months

The training is to a high standard and has made a real difference to our people. We are continuing to roll out new cohorts and programmes across the council. I would highly recommend Fareport to other employers.”

Laura Winfield - Associate Project Manager Level 4
"I really enjoyed the contextualisation sessions which helped put the learning in to practice. I have also found it helpful to have the option to go in to college on study days for some additional support to complete work. My tutor was very supportive and ensured I got through the course. It was helpful to be able to access support face to face and over the phone/ zoom."
