Apprenticeships and Long-Term Development Programmes

Happy's apprenticeship schemes are open to existing staff of any age, or we can help you recruit and support a new member of the team.

As an approved apprenticeship provider, all programmes can be funded through the Apprenticeship Levy or the government's co-investment scheme.
