“The relationship between myself and CA and Assessor works really well. All communicating very well, and the support given by all at CA is great and has really benefited me in my personal growth working with apprentices.”

“Regular engagement with Creative Alliance is what makes it work. They allow us to get on with what we do. They have supported us and helped us through every phase of the apprenticeship process. With that, it’s not been a resource-heavy experience and we have a great apprentice who is now a full-time employed member of the team.”

Drew Burtenshaw | The Partnership

“Creative Alliance made the whole process very straightforward, ensured that we selected the correct candidates and provided us with peace of mind knowing that they are only a phone call away for any ongoing support we need. All in all an excellent service.”

Simon McCarroll | PrintBots

“I have had four apprentices and have worked with the Creative Alliance for over 3 years. They are incredibly supportive and open-minded, always there to provide help and guidance not just for the apprentice but also for the employer. Their focus and mindset is in the creative industry and they fully understand the nature of what organisations like mine do and the constraints and pressures that we work under; and as a result working harmoniously in partnership with us and our young people.”

Guy Marson, Creative Director | Modus Creative
