- Business and Administration
- Customer Services
- Team Leading
- Children and Young People Workforce
- Health and Social Care
- Cleaning and Support Services

- Construction Skills (Brickwork, General Construction, Plastering, Floor and Wall Tiling, Joinery, Painting and Decorating)
- Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools
- Food Production and Cooking
- Laundry Operations

Short Courses

We offer a range of short courses (both accredited and non-accredited) throughout the year. These can be tailored to suit the needs of your employees, for example specific industry requirements. Courses can usually be delivered in one day and in some cases just a few hours!
