“Because we understand the world of business, the challenges faced by companies in the Covid climate, we are able to offer real help to organisations in the SEMLEP (South East Midlands) area.

“This is great time for companies to come to us to help create the next generation of apprentices” said Gina.

Julie added: “We work very closely with employers and have a great relationship advising them on all the options now available to businesses from apprenticeship deals to a vast range of free up-skilling courses which can be accessed online allowing staff to still be ‘at work’ while gaining new qualifications.”

A wide range of full or part-time courses are available from The Bedford College Group online or at one of their many locations stretching from Bedford, Biggleswade, Kempston, Kettering, Wellingborough and Corby.
