About this Apprentice Employer
We’re WhiteHat, a tech startup democratising access to the best careers. There are almost 800,000 young people aged 16-24 in the UK who are not in employment, education or training. Research shows that, particularly at this young age, this can have a detrimental effect on physical and mental health.
At present, the typical apprentice is older than 24 and already in employment – and that needs to change. We believe apprenticeships should be prioritised as a way of empowering young people to build great careers, without first having to pursue 3 years of university education and absorb increasing levels of debt.
We match non-graduate talent with apprenticeship opportunities at some of the UK’s most exciting companies. By delivering training in partnership with world-class content providers, through a combination of 1:1 coaching and cutting-edge tech, we offer apprenticeships that genuinely rival the learning experience at elite universities.
We are a purpose driven organisation that believes apprenticeships are essential to driving greater opportunity. That’s why we work with a truly diverse and exceptional group of young people.
The introduction of the Levy has given a once in a generation chance for us to build an alternative pathway to an amazing career and ensure that a broad range of employers, where young people truly want to work, are engaging with this agenda.
We are a talent accelerator helping to create a diverse group of future leaders.
