"No Limits has worked with Fareport for some years now and our relationship has always run smoothly.
Our correspondence is always responded to quickly and paperwork when enrolling new Apprentices is also very timely."

"I would like to say that I like the way that I can be involved as much (or as little) as I like with the Apprentices. Communication and the support I receive from the Assessor and Fareport is very good and I feel involved every step of the way. This is extremely important as I have to report to the Board on Apprenticeship and programme success as this will influence how we go forward with the programme in the future."
Kerry Gregory, No Limits

“Extremely happy with Fareport Training. Easy to contact, staff are well supported, even those that have struggled. Fareport have been really good, very happy and I have recommended Fareport to a friend of mine who will be looking at needing levels 2 and 3. Fareport’s training has had a massive impact on enhancing staff’s knowledge in relation to safeguarding, quality care and all round knowledge on Social Care. I have better trained staff which has 100% improved quality of care for our service users."

Theo Paphitis Retail Group
In the Summer of 2014 the Theo Paphitis Retail Group (TPRG) committed to offering Apprenticeships to all of their young employees and new recruits. To date nearly 200 Apprentices have started on a variety of programmes including Retail, Warehousing and Leadership and Management.
TPRG is made up of 3 brands:
The Theo Paphitis Retail Group are so convinced about the quality of our services that they are offering training and Apprenticeships at all 357 of their UK stores.
'Fareport Training have an excellent reputation for delivering tailored training and Apprenticeships that will make a real difference to our future success'.
Theo Paphitis, Entrepreneur and Chairman, Theo Paphitis Retail Group Ltd
Fareport worked closely with Mike Winstone, Director of HR, and his Training and Development team to design an Apprenticeship training programme tailored to their needs while meeting national standards. We ensure that all company training programmes are mapped against the Apprenticeship standards. Those colleagues who are not eligible for an Apprenticeship are offered a full in house programme by the business thus ensuring that everyone is developed in line with the operating requirements of their store.
The Group believe that apprenticeships are an investment in their staff that will ultimately improve retention, progression and productivity in this business.
In a recent Quality Assurance survey, Mike described Fareport's assessors as 'second to none'. The business values the assessment and external scrutiny afforded to the Group from using a high quality independant training provider rather than just offering the training in house. The Group noted that doing all training and assessment in house would be akin 'to marking your own homework'.
The team at TPRG meet with Fareport monthly to review the progress of all their learners and to discuss upcoming recruitment to the Apprenticeship programme. The partnership between Fareport and TPRG means that there is full integration between the Apprenticeship programme and all aspects of internal training, thus ensuring a highly effective approach and value for money.
