About – Apprentices & Graduates


Cogent Skills works alongside the leadership of sector employers to raise skills levels.

Our apprenticeship and graduate services have been supporting science industry employers to attract, retain and develop people who can contribute to business success since 2012.

We are fully registered on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers and the Register of Apprenticeship Training Agencies. We provide a range of services including apprenticeship training, outsourced employment, recruitment and consultancy. We specialise in apprentices, undergraduates and graduates, and our team have years of experience focusing on the requirements of the science sector, meaning we understand the industry and can provide a completely tailored service. We also pride ourselves on providing independent advice and guidance if you require a service we don’t currently offer. For these reasons, we are trusted by the largest science using companies in the world.

Our apprenticeship and graduate services are also part of the Cogent Skills parent body which has charitable status, and is a not-for-profit organisation. Cogent Skills also acts as the strategic partner to industry and provides support to the Science Industry Partnership (SIP) and the Nuclear Skills Strategy Group (NSSG) which are fully established membership forums.
