Together Training

Together Training is a partnership between Oaklands College and West Herts College.

A joint venture launched in 2016, we specialise in meeting the apprenticeship needs of levy-paying employers.

By combining the provision available at two colleges, Together Training can:

  • Offer a diverse range of apprenticeship programmes and levy solutions
  • Provide bespoke solutions based on high-quality training and development
  • Keep it simple – channelling all services through a single account director

Our objective is to help clients cut through levy complexity, targeting productivity and growth to maximise your return on investment.


Our approach to training-needs analysis is thorough but flexible, whether it’s reviewing a particular set of skill requirements or a wider plan at organisational level.

Every project is tailored, with the key to success being our close partnership with you, to ensure we can identify potential opportunities as well as immediate needs.

In our experience, it’s these marginal gains that make all the difference – with inventive deployment of levy spend bringing significant benefits to training outcomes.

It’s here where the combined resources of two colleges – brought to you via a single account director – can make a real difference. Together we can build development strategies that combine apprenticeships with professional short courses and other bespoke features.

Our expertise centres on four priority skills areas:

  • Leadership and management
  • Construction and trades
  • Digital
  • Professional services

Why Us?

Apprenticeship Levy We have seen a steady increase in employers utilising their Apprenticeship Levy, with early adopters followed by a growing number of businesses across many sectors.
70 employers are working with us to support 144 apprentices – across both new recruits and the upskilling of existing staff.

allocating Levy spend

New flexibilities around allocating levy spend to supply chains is an interesting prospect, creating scope to funnel apprenticeships and training through SMEs.

Our apprenticeship retention rates are impressive, based on an approach to operations which is smooth and productive for employer and apprentice alike.

Feel free to speak to us about any of this, whether informally to share ideas or on a more structured basis.
