Why choose Tiro? 


There’s a skills shortage in science and technology, and the answer lies with apprenticeships. 

Here at Tiro, we love helping ambitious employers to grow their teams. We put them together with the most accomplished apprentices, and support them both to flourish.

Talk to Tiro

Tiro has helped some of the UK’s leading organisations to staff up for major projects, and helped micro-businesses become SMEs. We’ll help you grow too. 

Give us a call to explore what apprenticeships can do for your organisation.

Bespoke training, written and delivered the way you want it

Every business is different. That’s why Tiro develops flexible, bespoke training to address your unique skills gap. 

Our expert Tutors can assemble a training curriculum based on the needs of the industry and you the employer. We develop new modules from scratch and combine them with existing ones, to create something that works for you. 

We manage the whole process to ensure your programme meets the required standard and becomes nationally recognised. Just like our Concrete Science module, which now forms part of the Materials Testing Technician Apprenticeship programme, and is endorsed by the Concrete Society.

Partners, not suppliers

Tailoring your training content is just one of the things we do differently at Tiro. Every aspect of our apprenticeships is developed in partnership with our clients. 

From winning senior buy-in for your apprenticeship scheme, to training future mentors. From selecting the best possible candidates, to delivering training how, when, and where it suits you. 

We’ll get to know you and create a unique programme to add value fast. It’s a method that really works. Without fail, our clients are shocked by the impact our apprentices make, and how quickly.

What else makes us different?

  • End-to-end recruitment service – Our experienced recruitment team can do everything from advertising vacancies to running assessment centres, to find your ideal candidates. 
  • Expert Tutors – Our training team has real-world science and technology experience, academic qualifications up to PhD level, and a wealth of teaching expertise. 
  • Science and technology through and through – Our clients work on everything from earthworks to networks, and from cancerous cells to concrete. 
  • Evangelical about apprenticeships – Many of our new recruits, our senior team, even our kids, are working towards apprenticeships at all levels. We tell everyone we meet about the power of apprentices.

“Apprenticeships are not ‘one size fits all’, and Tiro really listened to our requirements rather than telling us what we needed. You’re entrusting the future development of your team to someone over a number of years, so our strong partnership with Tiro has been the key to the scheme’s success.”

“Seeing apprentices reach their potential is what gets me out of bed in the morning. I'm a card-carrying apprenticeship fan and I think it changes people's lives."
