Swarm Apprenticeships is proud to be a Community Interest Company whose mission is to develop a more enterprising, compassionate and purposeful business community across the UK and beyond.
Our enterprising and compassionate business values are at the very core of the Swarm brand. At Swarm Apprenticeships C.I.C, we focus on making sure we work collaboratively with the learner and employer to make sure they have the best possible educational journey and feel supported in achiving success.
In our apprenticeship training, we know that to succeed today, you need more than ever to focus on developing your managers and leaders to have the right mindset, skills and behaviors which enable innovation, enterprise and growth across your organisation. Above all the training has to deliver results and demonstrate a good return on investment.
Being a social enterprise we know from experience that social and community impact can boost profitability, grow staff loyalty, and make work much more than just a job. We encourage our learners to demonstrate their impact on profitability and to do this in a way that is ethical, honest and fair.
