MITO’s Training Advisors support you and your employee throughout the duration of the training programme and you can contact them at any time with questions.

When your employee signs up for an apprenticeship or training programme, your local Training Advisor will visit you to do a Training Capacity Assessment of your workplace to ensure your business can support your employee's training programme.

The assessment covers areas such as:

  • The equipment and range of work you have available
  • The qualifications and experience of the people at your business
  • Your commitment to supporting your employee achieve their qualification.

Once this is complete, they will explain the training process to you and your employee. Your Training Advisor will then visit you at least four times a year to:

  • Develop and update personalised training plans
  • Provide you with up-to-date reports on your employee’s training activity
  • Set goals with you and your employee to help them achieve their qualification.

Please note that under the RED COVID-19 Protection Framework setting face-to-face visits are possible if the learner and supervisor hold a current and valid My Vaccine Pass and at least 1m distancing can occur. If this isn't possible, then the Training Advisor visit will be conducted online. 

In some instances your employee may be required to attend a polytechnic or training provider block-course. This is either because it’s part of their training programme, or if your workplace cannot support a particular part of their learning. If this is required, then the employee will be required to hold a current and valid My Vaccine Pass to enter the premises of the polytechnic or training provider. It is best to enquire about this at enrolment to ensure that this doesn’t limit their ability to enrol or complete the training.


Along with your MITO Training Advisor, you will be the main support for your employee during their training. You will facilitate their training in your workplace, sharing with them the necessary skills of the job, oversee their learning and set the standard for their training.

Most of MITO's programmes have the theory component delivered online as eLearning. This allows you to access online learning resources, including videos, interactive simulations and online theory assessments, at any time and from any device – mobile phone, tablet or computer. Real-time results and progress reports are available through MITO’s online Portal to both you and your employee.

You and your employee will receive the log-in details upon enrolment.

If the training programme is not delivered through eLearning then your employee will be provided with a folder of their training materials.

Your MITO Training Advisor will conduct an induction session with you and your employee so you’ll all be set up to go in no time.
