VQ Solutions Ltd was established in 2008 and has provided a range of services in the delivery of vocational training in the UK and internationally. Through consultancy, international governments and blue-chip organisations, our team members have advised on the implementation and development of technical and vocational education and training.

Quickly establishing itself as a quality training organisation, VQ was awarded a direct contract with the Skills Funding Agency to deliver apprenticeships.

Since then, VQ has expanded its apprenticeship offering. It is now the largest provider in England for Network Cable Installer apprenticeships. It also offers a range of other apprenticeships, including business administration, digital marketing, network engineering, management, and HR.


  • We care about providing the right information to potential apprentices and employers. Many people are new to becoming or hiring apprentices, and we make sure we are always available to support them.
  • We care about recruitment because the success of an apprenticeship stems from this process. The business has to be right for the apprentice, and the apprentice must be right. It’s not a numbers game.
  • We care about delivery. Our programmes are innovative, and we embrace the use of technology. Learning has to be focused, fun and functional.
  • We care about the welfare of our apprentices and our staff are on hand to respond, support, guide, advise and ensure your apprenticeship is a success.


We offer a free recruitment service for all of our employees. We believe there is a very clear correlation between the robustness of the recruitment process, the quality of candidates and the success of the apprenticeship.


We offer responsive delivery for all of our employers and apprentices. This includes highly engaging workshops and online webinars. We deliver training nationally and work with training partners to meet all employer needs.


We like to be innovative in all aspects of our delivery. We have an outstanding eLearning portal, and we have developed a unique curriculum management and quality assurance system. We also develop engaging eLearning content.


Our relationships with our employers are incredibly important. That is why so many come back to us year after year to support their apprenticeship programmes. If we can't deliver a programme for you, we will find an alternative provider at no cost.


We were inspected by OfSTED in February 2020 and were rated as GOOD. Some of the key findings were:

Apprentices receive good support from staff. Staff know their apprentices well and use this knowledge to provide useful learning activities that enable apprentices to develop their knowledge, skills and behaviours.

Managers carefully recruit apprentices, enabling them to settle well into their job roles and quickly develop their confidence and independence. Employers are impressed by apprentices’ willingness to innovate and take on increased responsibility early in their apprenticeship. For example, apprentices in business management who previously would not have put themselves forward now take the lead on ‘time to talk day’, which promotes talking about mental health in the workplace.

Apprentices demonstrate high respect for staff, peers and colleagues at work, contributing well to a positive workplace culture. Apprentices enjoy the opportunity to work with their peers at workshops to share experiences from their workplaces.

Apprentices feel safe at work and in the learning environment. Most apprentices understand fundamental British values, staying safe online, and the dangers of radicalisation and extremism. Apprentices, particularly those based in larger towns and cities, understand local risks, such as the dangers of knife crime and county lines.
