Information For Employers 


Shape the growth of your organisation's future by investing in new skills and develop a motivated, highly trained workforce through apprenticeships and standalone qualifications.

We have a Strategic Approach to Training

We do it in three stages

Fact finding conversations in which we discuss with you what you are looking for, what are the needs of your organisation and where there are benefits to your team from all aspects of a Training Needs Assessment

Stage 1

An analysis, by our expert Assessors and Coordinators to design a Training Plan which fits in with the Training Needs Assessment and delivers a rounded course which can be followed with a minimum disruption to the working patterns of the organisation

Stage 2

Agree with you and your staff the delivery of the Training with defined timescales, realistic goals and to confirm the personal relationship with the members of out team who will be the supporters of both you and your staff.

Stage 3

Our method works well and provides an interactive and dynamic approach to the training needs of your organisation and its staff. We tailor the process to provide the best and most appropriate outcomes for you.

This is a comment from one of our employers:

“Universal Learning Streams (ULS) have been our preferred provider for Residential Childcare Advanced Apprenticeships and Level 5 Residential Childcare Management Diplomas for 5 years. We have found them to be proactive, flexible, reliable and they have successfully completed in excess of 100 Apprentices for our company, with a further 100 still working towards successful completion of their Apprenticeships within promised timescales. ULS are a friendly and accessible company with whom we have built solid relationships over the years. As a levy payer it is important to us that any provider we work with is able to not only accept levy paying clients but also manage the systems smoothly, and Universal Learning Streams do this well. They never fail to provide us with excellent service for competitive prices. We have had very few issues during our longstanding relationship, and those that have arisen have been dealt with professionally and courteously. I would wholeheartedly recommend the company as a provider of Apprenticeships and qualifications for your staff.”
