The Apprentice Training Agency (ATA)

Leicester College’s Apprentice Training Agency (ATA) supports employers who wish to take on an apprentice.

Each apprentice is directly employed and managed by the ATA whilst they are working for you. We simply require a payment based on the agreed wage and our management fee.

We will deliver continuous support to both you and the apprentice, dealing with any potential issues such as absence or performance management on your behalf.
