Ginger Nut

About Us

In early 2011 we were born as an ambitious media company Ginger Nut Media

From here we grew to win brands like The Times, The Economist, RSPB and many more.

Working out of a spare room we moved into our first office with three directors.

We wanted to expand. Having met with our local MP at launch and been the happy recipients of free government business training and advice.

We hired five apprentices!

Many people in the industry thought we were mad, except Essex County Council and the National Apprenticeship Service. We had a huge amount of help along the way and were joined by five great apprentices.

We doubled our productivity within six months and went on to win many awards including Best New SME at the National Apprenticeship AwardsAll About School Leavers Best level of support, and were listed as a Top 100 apprenticeship employer three times. 

During this growth we continued to get more involved in apprenticeship stakeholder groups and assisted both the AELP and the ESFA through different networks. We were humbled to even chair an ambassador network full of massive employers who had hired thousands of apprentices.

After hiring near on 30 apprentices ourselves…

We decided, in 2014 that we wanted to take the next steps on the apprenticeship journey and launched our independent training provider, Ginger Nut Training.

Here we used the experience of managing apprentices within our business and our knowledge on stakeholder groups and consultants to build a provider that was different. We wanted to build a provider focused on customer service, the needs of employers and the desires of apprentices.

Fast forward now to 2021 - Ginger Nut Media is still going strong and Ginger Nut Training are registered with City and Guilds, BCS, APM, ILM, Highfields, and are training over 200 apprentices at some of the largest companies in the country!
