About The Opportunity Group

How we support learning for all

Our story

It was the day after the EU referendum, in 2016 the country was reeling and wondering what was next. Our co-founders, Kate and Michaela were speaking at a conference in Manchester feeling a little uncertain and deflated. They met at the lunch buffet over a shared frustration of the conference format being the same old content delivered by the same people year after year but the real story began over a glass of prosecco at Kings Cross Station a year after first meeting. They decided to build their own apprenticeship training provider having kissed a few frogs in their search to find the perfect registered training provider to collaborate with. A shared purpose of believing in the power of apprenticeships and development, they had experienced first-hand the challenges of being in-house and trying to find a way to utilise the apprenticeship levy and development in an innovative and impactful way.

Combining their shared vision and complimentary skillsets, they merged their two businesses (a commercial training company ‘Gradvert’ and apprenticeship consultancy ‘Aequalis’ ) to create The Opportunity Group.

Our purpose is to change the perception of apprenticeships globally.

We want to share the important message about how apprenticeships can transform your organisation using government funding in a creative and strategic way.

Are you tired of the challenges of talent acquisition? and want to upskill your people for the changing work environment?

We want to show you that maximising apprenticeships is a high value way to develop your people for better workforce planning and profitability.

Through learner stories we will share with you how to develop human potential by creating the behavioural change that allows you to develop and celebrate diversity.
