Why We Choose Apprentices

OPRA's Apprentice Journey

As apprentice employers ourselves, we recognise and champion the benefits for both individuals and businesses.  We offer apprenticeships to all of our employees, irrespective of their level of experience or area of interest, this has also allowed our staff to grow personally and professionally, and maintained an engaged workforce.  Using apprenticeship programmes as a further development tool has meant we have been able to adapt and grow the business, offering additional services to our clients’ ever-changing needs.
