GROW is The Salvation Army’s Apprenticeship scheme which aims to utilise and promote apprenticeships as valuable training options. It is a great way to develop our existing workforce. The apprenticeship scheme also offers managers the opportunity to attract fresh talent to our organisation.

The new apprenticeships standards have be designed by industry experts to ensure apprentices that complete these work based training programmes, acquire the modern and essential skills needed to thrive in the work place today.

The apprenticeships are delivered in the workplace by a range of external training providers, colleges and universities depending on the level and subject of the qualification. Once you enrol onto an apprenticeship you will be assigned a trainer or coach from the provider who will support you throughout the qualification.
