Want an Apprentice but can't eat a whole one... why not share?

CoTrain helps Contractors to meet training targets on short-term developments and schemes. Contractors can ‘host’ an apprenticeship placement for an agreed period of time (minimum of 26 weeks) providing the help you need only when you need it. Click here to find out more.
