With over 25 years’ experience delivering government funded programmes to the education sector, GP Strategies provides a range of bespoke training courses for schools, academies and Multi Academy Trusts.

We understand the challenges and frustrations that organisations in the education sector face, and work in partnership with a number of schools, academies and trusts across the UK to deliver and support their apprenticeship journey.

We offer a range of flexible, high-quality training packages which are tailored to the individual requirements of each school or academy. These programmes can be used to meet your entry-level recruitment needs, or to upskill existing staff in a variety of roles including teaching support, management and administration.


“GP Strategies has provided a complete end to end service from advice and support for schools on appropriate apprenticeships for their needs, the recruiting of apprentices, delivery of a flexible, high quality training programme delivered by experienced skills coaches and support through the End Point Assessment. They have worked closely with the Trust to ensure systems, process and content aligns with our organisational needs. This has led to a significant increase in the number of Teaching Assistant Apprenticeships.”
