Learning & Apprenticeships

Halifax Opportunities Trust is a well-established and highly regarded work-based learning provider in West Yorkshire. We are registered with the ESFA (Education & Skills Funding Agency) to deliver work-based apprenticeships.

We are currently working with a range of employers, including early years providers, primary and secondary schools, across West Yorkshire. Here we deliver qualifications in learning support, early years and business administration.

Our Apprenticeship team are now directly registered with OFSTED for the apprenticeship provision.

Why choose us?

Blending theory with hands-on practical skills and experience, the apprenticeship package will provide a nationally recognised qualification in the subject area along with functional skills where these are a requirement of the apprenticeship standard. We have developed high quality training programmes that incorporate Intermediate (2) and Advanced (3) levels of the framework.

We were also delighted to retain our Matrix standard for the 7th year in a row. The Matrix Standard is a unique quality standard for organisations to assess and measure their advice and support services, which ultimately supports individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals.


The Apprenticeship offer is open not only to new staff who may be joining your teams but also to existing employed staff. There is currently no upper age limit on undertaking an apprenticeship and employers can benefit from a £1000 incentive for taking on a 16 – 18 year old apprentice, paid to them by the Government.

Are you a school leaver?

There’s much more to further education than college and sixth form. Apprenticeships give you the freedom to learn, work and earn, in a career path that suits YOU.
