Read how Co-op are utilising technology to modernise the way apprenticeships are managed

Learn how Conveya supports Co-op in managing the progress of 700+ apprentices.

The Background

The team at Co-op have approximately 750 apprentices being trained by over 25 different external training providers who are spread up and down the country.

Effectively managing the growing programme with limited resources meant thinking outside the box…

Outside of that box sits Conveya.


The Challenge

Co-op invest in hiring and upskilling colleagues through a range of apprenticeship programmes.

Colleagues can earn while they learn, and new recruits are developing accredited skills from the start of their new roles.

It’s important for Co-op to maintain high retention rates and ensure that the colleagues  they bring into the business have a positive experience.

Co-op’s Apprenticeship Team was looking to find a way to reduce the time taken on administrative tasks so that more time could be spent actually supporting the apprentices.


The Solution

Since 2020 Co-op have invested in our innovative apprenticeship reporting platform – Conveya Report.


Report allows the 25+ external training providers that Co-op partner with to report data directly into centralised, tailored dashboards.

·      The team can immediately identify who needs support by clicking a button.

·      Reporting internally is quick and easy  

·      A complex array of spreadsheets is no longer needed.

At Co-op we have approximately 750 apprentices with over 25 different training providers. We were receiving monthly reports in all different formats, on different dates, and needed to find our  own resource to consolidate reports into one meaningful report for our whole business every month.  We were searching for a solution to buy in. We met with the team at Conveya and realised that their product would work well for us, and it does.” -Louise Timperley, Apprenticeship Manager
