New website section: The Who, What, When and How of Apprenticeships

We are very excited to launch a new section on our website for Apprenticeships. We feel that this new section addresses the "Who, What, When and How" of Apprenticeships and the most common questions that we get asked.

We have divided this new section into a number of subdivisions:

  • What is an Apprenticeship?
  • Why do an Apprenticeship?
  • What to expect?
  • Parents
  • Employers: What is an Apprenticeship?
  • Employers: Why choose Tempdent?

Below is just a small taste of what each section comprises of…

Employers: what is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are a tried and tested way to recruit new staff, retrain or up-skill existing staff. Also this can be done in your workplace, minimising disruption and maximising impact. We also find that hiring an apprentice is a great way of increasing loyalty as the learner has started their career with the practice and has more of a sense of duty to the employer who gave them their first start. Read more…

  • Tempdent provided me with the most amazing help and support during my training. My assessor, Lynn really helped me through my course, she was very easy to approach. She had some brilliant tips and hits when it came to revising for my exams and I managed to qualify in just over a year which I do not think I could have done without such a great tutor. When I was really stuck on a project Lynn would make an arrangement for a support call where she broke down the project in a way I could understand what I had to do
    Shannon Feguson - Student
  • I have just finished my course with Tempdent and they were brilliant! Especially my assessor Anita, she always contacted me to make sure I was happy and on target, and was overall a brilliant support!
