Empowering the next generation with the vital skills they need to help them into work is key to both their and business success, so I am thrilled Sodexo is enabling this through our new partnership with Collab Group.

Sue Davison
Head of Apprenticeships

We are excited to partner with Collab to deliver our Technical apprenticeships. The partnership will help us to be able to provide more apprenticeship programmes nationwide including remote areas of the UK. Having all our Technical programmes under Collab’s colleges will allow us to be closer to our learners by streamlining our reporting into one system. We will know exactly where everyone is on programme and be able to provide additional support as and when they need it.
