Humber Apprenticeship Brokerage Service (or HABS, for short) can tell you everything you need to know about apprenticeships in the Humber. Don’t worry, though, we won’t drown you in industry jargon and information. Instead, ours is a simple, impartial and effective service with one aim: to connect apprentices, employers and training providers.

Intended to boost skills levels and productivity, HABS aims is to simplify apprenticeship uptake for Humber employers and candidates, providing free information, guidance and support. Funded by the European Social Fund and Skills Funding Agency, HABS follows a successful Humber LEP pilot last year that saw 157 new jobs created in 12 months.

Inclusive of apprenticeship providers from across the region, we want everyone to get involved. Engage with us and you’ll gain in all sorts of ways.


The HABS team knows everything there is to know about apprenticeships in the Humber region and we’re a friendly bunch too. From us, you’ll get the guidance you need to make the right choices for your future. We won’t drown you in information; instead, we’ll listen, answer any questions and get to know you.

Once we understand what you’re hoping for, we’ll share relevant information, including which local training providers and employers may be a good match. When you’ve considered the options, and made your choice, we’ll refer you.


Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to boost your business and inject new skills and talent into your organisation. They can support your future growth and business success.

HABS offers a single point of contact for all your apprenticeship needs. There are 1500 job roles covered by an apprenticeship and we can help with every single one. We provide impartial, free of charge support for your business.

We’ll tell you everything you need to know about apprenticeships but we won’t drown you in information. Instead we’ll listen, we’ll answer any questions you have and we’ll share information that is relevant.
