CSR Group has been delivering quality scientific and healthcare Apprenticeships and training since it was founded in 2006. We are listed on the RoATP (Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers) and regulated by the IfATE (Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education). We are the country’s leading scientific training provider and are proud to work with some of the most innovative scientific product and service industries in the UK. CSR also has a solid and rapidly growing presence in the British Healthcare sector.
Our vision is to bring education and industry together for a brighter, safer world and to inspire the next generation of scientists and healthcare professionals. To do this we map our technical inputs to industry requirements and provide the highest quality of education possible to all our learners, supporting and enabling all of them to achieve their maximum potential. We are very proud of our current success rates which are greater than 90%.
We build trust and respect with our customers and partner with their HR and operational teams to advise them on how to build and embed exemplar Apprenticeship programmes to provide a healthy pipeline of talent for the future.
Our dedicated team of lecturers have strong industrial and academic backgrounds in the Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Biotechnology and Forensic sectors and our delivery team are passionate about learning and development.
We are very proud to be awarded accreditation from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) for our delivery of the Level 3 Laboratory Technician Apprenticeship Standard with the Level 3 BTEC Nationals in Applied Science (Chemistry Pathway).
Accredited status is a marker of quality for an education programme – assuring prospective students and employers that the programme is of a high standard. We are only the second training provider in the country to be awarded accreditation for a vocational programme.
The assessment criteria in our competence qualifications is mapped to the Science Council’s competence mark of Registered Science Technician (RSci-Tech) and Registered Scientist (RSci). This gives added value to our Apprenticeship qualifications, as it provides the vital rungs on the ladder for our Apprentices to become fully chartered scientists in their employment sectors.
Our aim is to give all our students a fun, interesting learning experience and enable them to access a meaningful career in the STEM sector of their choice.
