Awards and Recognition
MITSkills are proud to have been awarded the Most Supportive Apprenticeship Provider 2023 award as part of the seventh annual Greater London Enterprise Awards 2023.
This year, Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, renewed MITSkills prestigious quality mark relating to the Mayor’s Construction Academy to assist house building and enhance stand-alone skills within the construction industry.
Within the award notification, the Mayor commented, “This is a significant achievement that recognises the high standard and industry- relevance of the construction skills training that you offer to learners.”
MITSkills have again met the Matrix quality standard for information, advice and guidance this year. During our report it was highlighted that “MITSkills is one of the few organisations actively promoting its IAG service as a standalone.”
A UK government body responsible for the quality of education and training for adults and young people named MITSkills as one of the top training providers for apprenticeship training in the country.
At the launch of his annual report, the Chief Inspector said, “I am delighted to be able to name MITSkills as one of this year’s outstanding providers for apprentice training. They have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to achieving the very highest standards within the industry.”

Leaders have designed a curriculum that provides learners with the skills they require to meet their ambitions to become footballers or move on to sports-related careers.
As a result, the majority of learners progress on to sports related degrees, apprenticeships or employment.
Staff provide a range of activities for apprentices and learners which extends the curriculum and provides for their broader development.
Apprentices attend trade fairs to help them to keep up to date with developments in their sectors.
Apprentices and learners feel safe and know how to keep themselves safe.
They receive training which ensures they are confident in reporting any concerns about their welfare or that of a colleague or team member.
Teachers are aspirational for their adult learners. They help learners to plan ambitious targets that include three- to five-year career goals.
Consequently, learners successfully complete their qualifications and most progress into employment.
I like doing the work experience side of the traineeship because I’m learning with my hands instead of reading books. I think this helps me learn better as there is more communication between everyone.
I’ve always enjoyed working in a hands-on environment and doing practical work. I feel like I’m progressing everyday with MITSkills.
I found the practical work during my traineeship very helpful as it was a hands-on experience that I haven’t done before. I had a lot of fun learning new skills that I will be able to use in the future.
I felt really settled-in after only a couple of days at MITSkills. I’m really looking forward to starting my course.
I recommend coming to MITSkills for an apprenticeship because the staff are really nice and are always there to support if you’re struggling.
The MITSkills course has helped me to think outside the box and meet new people.
The course ( business administration) has helped me develop in my career from being a school leaver and not knowing what I wanted to do as a career to now finding my feet and flourishing in my job.
I could not recommend you and the course enough! The course has been a wonderful platform for me and I can now use and adapt the skills I’ve learnt as everyday practice in my role.
Leaving school I was unsure of what career I wanted to take up so I contacted MITSKILLS to start an electrical apprenticeship.
With no work experience what so ever they helped me find a job and eased me into it.
Further down the line I have now fully qualified and I am very thankful, I fully recommend the course due to the helpful staff and tutors who got me through it.
I am going to now continue my career and develop new skills on the way
