Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

Fully workplace based courses are an excellent way to recognise the talents in your workforce without having them spend time off-site in order to do so. This type of course is especially suited to existing employees within an organisation who have gained experience in the relevant industry and would like their skills accredited. It is also a great way to encourage staff who are already qualified to develop and achieve a higher level of attainment, or to gain a qualification as a stepping stone to an Apprenticeship.

By offering them the opportunity to be assessed at work, staff are able to show their commitment and competence and feel valued as a part of your organisation.

Learners will receive regular visits from an assigned College assessor who will ensure timely achievement of the qualification through target setting, ensuring their ongoing progress.

Introducing this type of training to your staff also means that your business is promoted as one that is dedicated to high standards among its competitors and can boast a fully qualified workforce, skilled and accomplished in their field.

As well as traditional NVQ qualifications, a range of Apprenticeships are also available for study in the workplace.

Where multiple members of staff undertake similar qualifications in a single location, pricing economies can be achieved, ensuring best value for money for a business.
