Time’s running out to hire an apprentice with Step Forward this year

Step Forward is the award-winning apprenticeship programme delivered by The Challenge. We’re looking for our final few employers before recruitment closes, so get in touch now to ensure you don’t miss out.

We are particularly looking for organisations that can provide entry-level roles in: accounting, digital marketing and IT/software development.

Our apprenticeship scheme is an easy, cost-effective way to recruit diverse young talent. We have connections to 98% of secondary schools across London, attracting 17-20 year olds with a variety of skills and ambitions.

We’re experts in the sector and work with companies large and small across the capital, including Bloomberg, Goodgym, Marriott, Salesforce and Barnardo’s.

Over 92% of organisations that employ apprentices say they create a more motivated workforce. Hannah Jennings, Early Engagement Programme Manager at Bloomberg said: ‘Working with Step Forward to build our apprenticeship programme has been a huge success. It has allowed us to connect with bright, motivated and enthusiastic students and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.”

We carefully select our apprentices and equip them to become well-rounded, confident professionals, supporting them – and you – every step of the way, so they can offer maximum value to your team in just 12 months. We also welcome applications from your younger team members to develop their skills.
