It further commends our unwavering commitment to quality service, which has consistently received exceptional feedback from all quarters.

City & Guilds Centre of Excellence Award for GLP Training

Our CEO, Gemma Parsons, eloquently spoke of the significance of this milestone. "It is a wonderful achievement to have our teams recognised by City & Guilds. It is a credit to the excellent work and training provided by our tutors and the fantastic achievement and development of our apprentices," she expressed, clearly brimming with pride.

Gemma’s enthusiasm about the award only echoed the pride that resonates across the GLP Training team. She continued, "I'm tremendously proud of our success in delivering such a high standard of apprenticeships at GLP Training and this recognition further supports our grade 2 OFSTED rating."

This prestigious accolade reflects our continued dedication to the professional development of our apprentices, a commitment that has now been recognised at a national level. Our team of dedicated tutors has consistently delivered an exceptional level of training, transforming novices into skilled professionals, eager and equipped to make their mark in their chosen field.

The City & Guilds Centre of Excellence Award further serves as a testament to the hard work, determination, and high levels of expertise showcased by our team, as well as the diligence and talent of our apprentices.

The Core of Our City & Guilds Centre of Excellence Award: Focusing on Key Apprenticeships

In the heart of our recognised Centre of Excellence, we are proud to offer our core apprenticeship programmes, that have played a key role in this accomplishment - Property Maintenance Operative, Building Services Engineering Service & Maintenance Engineer, Carpentry and Joinery, and Advanced Carpentry and Joinery. These programmes encapsulate the essence of our award-winning quality of service and high standard of apprenticeships.

Our Property Maintenance Operative apprenticeship programme offers a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of property maintenance, equipping our apprentices with the skills necessary to maintain and repair the fabric of modern buildings.

Our Building Services Engineering Service & Maintenance Engineer apprenticeship lays the groundwork for a career in building services engineering. It delves into intricate aspects of maintaining and servicing complex engineering systems, a cornerstone in the modern built environment.

Additionally, our Carpentry and Joinery apprenticeship programme is designed to teach apprentices the art and science of shaping and connecting pieces of wood. This programme, coupled with our Advanced Carpentry and Joinery apprenticeship, takes these skills to the next level, preparing apprentices for more complex tasks and senior roles within the industry.

These core apprenticeships, offered within our Centre of Excellence, reflect our commitment to providing comprehensive, industry-focused education and training. We firmly believe that these programs, alongside our other offerings, have played an instrumental role in the success of our apprentices and, ultimately, our recognition as a City & Guilds Centre of Excellence.

As we move forward, we continue to focus on these fundamental apprenticeships, consistently striving to enhance the content and delivery of each program. Our aim is to ensure that GLP Training continues to be a beacon of excellence in apprenticeship training, providing the best opportunities for our apprentices and contributing positively to the industries we serve.
