Which employers get top marks from the apprentices?


Launched in 2013, RateMyAppreticeship is well positioned to comment on pretty much anything to with do with apprentices. Every year, RateMyApprenticeship takes the reviews of over 4,000 apprentices to establish who the apprentices rate as their Top 100 employers. Their experiences were based on 10 questions covering everything from amount of responsibility given, to how valued they felt, the support they were given, the scheme’s structure, their salary/package and their day to day roles.

Despite never having appeared in the table up until this year, Anchor Trust – England’s largest not-for-profit housing association – came in at No.1 with a score of 9.23 out of 10. Apprentices praised the organisation for the rewarding work and high level of “support at every corner”.

Katie Rankin, Qualifications & Apprenticeships Manager at Anchor Trust, said: “We’re incredibly honoured to be voted the number one employer of apprentices through RateMyApprenticeship.co.uk, especially as it is our apprentices’ feedback which has got us here. At Anchor we’re passionate about developing future talent, giving young people the opportunity to gain new skills and make a real difference to older people’s lives.  We’re extremely proud of all of our apprentices; they inspire us and make us proud every day.”

The other two new entries in the top 10 were construction company Mace (3) and engine manufacturer Cummins (7), whilst BAE Systems came in second having climbed two places, with RBS rising 12 places into fourth. Leonardo remained fifth. RBS, ARUP, Virgin Media and CGI will no doubt be pleased with their impressive climbs. And the only fall is for J.P.Morgan – although when you’re ranked 9th there’s still a lot to be proud of.

Here’s the table in full:


Ollie Sidwell, Co-founder of RateMyApprenticeship.co.uk, said: “The Top 100 Employers table shows the diversity of options open to school leavers. With so many high scoring new entries and a wide array of sectors, it’s great to see the variety of options companies offer to young people who are seriously considering their alternatives to university.

“These results show how apprentices can experience the world of work with great rewards on offer. The reviews are also incredibly valuable in paving the way for companies to develop and improve their schemes to get the most out of young people.”
