What makes us stand out from the crowd?

For industry/employer-education collaboration to work it must be consistent and purposeful, that is why we value all our clients and understand the importance of developing long-term relationships built on mutual trust and transparency. We pride ourselves on providing a quality customer experience right from the very first time you speak to us because we understand that you need to be assured that involvement in education can be a benefit to your business and not a drain on time and resource.

What we offer

One point of contact
You will be allocated a dedicated account manager to act as one point of contact to deal with all of your training requirements and general enquiries.  

Access to expert advice and support
We'll provide practical support to identify the training issues you want to address and design a tailored programme to meet your precise needs.

Training where and when you want it
We will train your staff at a time and location to suit you, whether that is at your workplace or ours.

Training tailored to your industry
With access to a large bank of qualified assessors and trainers, you can rest assured that the person who trains your staff will have a pertinent knowledge base of your industry to make the training relevant to your particular business.

Real value for money
Unlike some training providers, we can access a much wider range of funding so you can get more for your training budget.  We'll source the funding for you and deal with all of the red tape so that you can concentrate on your business.  We are also a government approved provider for the Apprenticeship service, which enables you to grow your own talent.

One-stop shop
With the backing of a large further education college which delivers courses to over 16,500 people each year, we are able to offer you a massive range of training programmes covering most industries.  This means you won't have to spend time and money looking for lots of different training providers to meet your needs. Many of our courses can be customised and tailored to your particular needs or industry, we have considerable experience in developing and delivering a wide range of bespoke courses and programmes. On the rare occasion that we can't meet your training needs, then we can put you in touch with someone who can.

We would welcome the opportunity to connect with your company to discuss any training issues you want to address and/or any opportunities to work together.
