Developing talent
We are experts in the development of early talent, specialising in providing experiential learning and development programmes for apprentices and graduates. We work in partnership with our clients to identify, develop and change behaviours in line with organisational needs. The Trust?s experiential learning methodology goes beyond knowledge and theory into practical application, ensuring that our programmes continue to be relevant to society and business whilst remaining inspirational, challenging and motivational for individuals.

Supporting the chemicals industry
The Trust are a Cogent Skills assured provider and have worked closely with the Science Industry Trailblazer Group and the Science Industry Partnership to design and deliver programmes that support the development of the agreed trailblazer behaviours. We are currently supporting early talent at companies including GSK, Pfizer, SABIC Petrochemicals, Syngenta and Unilever. Because of our wider charitable work, we are also uniquely placed to deliver the sustainability agenda and have a proven, published record in accelerating positive social change.

Skills and behaviours
As experts in the provision of behavioural skills development one of our current focus areas is the apprenticeship levy. If you would like updates from us on the levy or are interested in joining one of our networking forums to discuss this topic please get in touch.
