If you’ve always wanted to learn a new language to use on holiday or with friends and family, now you can from the comfort of home, thanks to the launch of Gloucestershire College’s new remote courses for beginners, which are fun, flexible, affordable and accessible to all.
Our teaching teams are very busy getting ready to settle students into their new course and designing exciting new learning activities. Whilst they’re planning for excellent face-to-face delivery, they’re also preparing for all eventualities; using a wide-range of delivery methods that support remote learning - if required.
As part of their commitment to developing the next generation of cyber and IT talent in the region, Gloucestershire College is delighted to announce their partnership with local cyber group CyNam as academic sponsor. The College’s strategic partnership with Cheltenham’s influential cyber group will give more students the opportunity to enter this cutting-edge industry. Moreover, it will provide more local employers the ability to access the College’s specialised cyber and IT courses and apprenticeship training, and outstanding talent pool of readily available cyber and IT candidates.
Undeterred by the current climate, Gloucestershire College continues to forge alliances with local businesses to support the wider economy, and is delighted to announce the next step in a growing partnership with Bamboo Technology Group, a leading IoT, connectivity, data, IT and cyber security solutions provider.
Traditionally for some apprenticeship areas such as Engineering and Construction, Gloucestershire College have only allowed new starters to join in September. The College will now have two entry dates for the next academic year, allowing apprentices to start in both September 2020 and January 2021.
