James Stafford commented “I am absolutely delighted to be joining the team at EMA Training. With our core focus on high quality, high impact training, Tracey and I are confident that we can achieve our shared vision of becoming the apprenticeship provider of choice in the East Midlands for professional services apprenticeships.

From January 2020, SMEs will be able to select their apprenticeship training from all main provider organisations and institutions that remain listed in the register of apprenticeship training providers (RoATP). We needed to strength the leadership team to engage with local businesses with their apprenticeship recruitment needs. I am delighted James and Matt have joined the business to support us with this”.
