Derby-based EMA Training opens Leicester apprenticeship hub

Derby-based apprenticeship provider, EMA Training, is set to swing open the doors to its city centre Leicester Hub on July 1, 2024, welcoming students and business partnerships from across the county.

EMA Training, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, was founded in 2013 by managing director, Tracey Mosley. EMA has since built a very well-respected brand across the East Midlands. It has become renowned for its high-quality approach to providing students with apprenticeship training across finance, marketing and data technology.

A new regional director

Gemma Orton, also well-known for her work amongst the business and charity community across Leicestershire, joins the team as regional director for the Leicester Hub. Gemma comments: “I believe there is a huge gap across Leicestershire for the provision of high-quality apprenticeship training. Also, it's very important for businesses to collaborate with a local apprenticeship provider who genuinely cares about supporting them in growing the next generation of our business community. “Tracey and I met when we were 16 years old - both of us commencing on our apprenticeship journeys at the time. I’m a huge ambassador for apprenticeships and the opportunities that can come from this chapter for both student and business. "I’m so excited to be working with Tracey. Our vision and values have always been so well aligned and I think it can only mean really positive and exciting stuff for the future.”

An ambitious step

This ambitious step results in EMA Training becoming the only face-to-face classroom training provider in the city, for its finance apprenticeships. The team at EMA have always been passionate about this hybrid approach to their apprenticeship offerings. A typical week for an EMA student is 4 days a week ‘in the business’ with their employer. They then gain vital first-hand experience and one day a week at a refreshingly designed, EMA Training Hub. This allows learners to benefit from collaborating with other learners, sharing their experiences, meeting experts in the industry and generally enjoying the modern and great space which each Hub has to offer. Tracey Mosley, Managing Director, comments: "We have been frequently approached over the years by businesses, parents and school leavers, to bring our brand to Leicester. "Timing is crucial and we needed to ensure we had a regional director capable of driving this initiative forward successfully. I believe that Gemma Orton is that person. “With her established relationships in Leicester, her drive, ambition, and proven track record, she is the ideal fit for our future plans. In the 20-plus years I have known her, she has excelled in everything she undertakes. This excites not only me, but the whole of the EMA team.”
