Our goal

To help companies close the skills gap in their operations.

We know from experience that a company offering structured training programmes attracts talented individuals into employment.

Giving them the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills through training helps retain them.

Mission  & Code

Mission & Code

Our mission is to empower individuals and organisations to reach their full potential by delivering high-quality innovative and effective learning experiences.

To assure the mission, Didac has adopted the Code of Good Governance devised by the Association of Employment & Learning Providers

The Code is based on the following expectations of good governance, which illustrate the values and beliefs of Didac’s governance board and directors.

  • Putting the learner, apprentice and employer first
  • Promoting high expectations and ambitions for learners, apprentices and staff
  • Listening to learners, employers and staff
  • Promoting inspirational training, teaching and learning and assessment
  • Creating a safe environment for learners and apprentices to train, learn and develop
  • Providing strong strategic leadership and challenge to the senior team
  • Demonstrating accountability to all stakeholders, including publishing accurate and timely information on performance
  • Ensuring the achievement of equality of opportunity and diversity throughout the organisation

Adopting the Code provides the framework to rethink and refresh approaches to governance as a member of the community of independent training providers that strive to be at the forefront of best practice in apprenticeships and government-funded training.

Our Appoach

Our Appoach

We provide a first class ‘hands-on’ experience on every course we deliver, whether that be a short course or apprenticeship.

We do this by providing the materials, equipment, a qualified and occupationally experienced trainer, access to on-line learning, classroom sessions, one to one support, off the job training, work place observation and feedback from live work situations.

It’s blended learning at it’s best and contributes to our learners excellent achievement rates.

Last academic year our achievement rates were 64%, which is 12% above the national average.
