As a Tiro apprentice, you could join them.

Your next step on the career ladder

We support all of our apprentices and their employers to decide on their next steps. 

Most of Tiro’s employers are keen to see their apprentices develop into permanent employees. That means they can keep hold of all the skills and knowledge you’ve developed throughout your training. 

There’s no guarantee of a role, but nor are you obliged to stay put. Some apprentices prefer to move on to pastures new, once they’ve completed the programme.

If you do part ways, you’ll be moving on with a nationally-recognised apprenticeship under your belt. Our programmes are all developed in consultation with employer groups and designed with employability in mind. The skills, behaviours and knowledge you’ll develop throughout your apprenticeship are sought after by many fantastic organisations. 

So you’ll have plenty of options. 

Check out the programmes we offer to explore the kinds of careers they can lead to.

Lifelong learning 

Your training and development don’t have to end after an apprenticeship. Ongoing learning is a vital ingredient in career growth, whether that’s in the form of learning on the job, or a more academic route. 

It’s not uncommon for an apprentice to complete a programme and then progress to another apprenticeship at a higher level, even up to a degree.  

Apprenticeships are just one way to keep learning, and you might choose to pursue further qualifications through your employer, or embark on further training and qualifications elsewhere.

84% of our most recent apprentices continued working with the same employer, compared with a national average of 65%
