Competency based qualifications (NVQs)

If you want to improve and certify the skills of your workforce, then our assessors can work with you to develop your employees in the workplace and assess their competence as they develop.

Distance Learning

We offer a wide range of distance learning qualifications which are nationally recognised and provide you with a cost-effective and flexible way of increasing the knowledge of your workforce.  At the present time, the majority of the qualifications we offer through distance learning are free.  For more information click here.


Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes where the learner studies on the job and is supported by the College Apprenticeship Team. We work with employers and employees to find the right Apprenticeship, agree a training plan and manage the training and its evaluation.  Apprenticeships are available in a wide range of subjects and there are funding options for both young people and adults, new and existing employees.  Apprenticeships are only available to people who are working, either full or part time.

Short courses

Short courses are typically classroom based with learning lasting one or two days. They are designed to provide knowledge on a single subject. These courses are typically held during the working day at one of our sites. We regularly add new courses, for details of courses starting soon please click here or contact the team.

Professional qualifications

We provide a range of recognised qualifications from industry-leading awarding bodies such as BTEC, NCFE, AAT, CMI, ILM and NEBOSH. Qualifications are a necessary requirement in many industries and we ensure that we provide the most up-to-date provision. Qualifications can be delivered in college, or in some cases, by a blend of distance learning and classroom study. Our tutors are experienced industry practitioners who focus on enabling our learners to achieve the employment outcomes and results.

Bespoke training packages

Many of our courses can be delivered as part of a tailor-made programme for your business or employees. We are happy to deliver courses on your premises at times to suit you and your organisation or to develop distance learning packages that fit around your working day.CALL: 01782 603603
