Apprenticeships are a great way to upskill, get qualified and get paid. They have come a long way over the years, with many employers offering more than the National Living Wage. You can progress into an apprenticeship with your current employer, or start your career in finance, business and marketing, HR, management, education and early years, engineering, dentistry, hospitality, construction and cyber. We work with over 1,200 local employers and provide bespoke support for your and your employer throughout the apprenticeship.

Professional and Short Courses

As the world gets busier, short courses enable you to gain the qualifications you need, whilst balancing your other commitments. Our AAT courses can set you on your way to fulfil your career in accounting, starting with entry-level right the way through to Level 4. We also offer courses in teacher training, counselling, access to higher education and more.

Just for Fun

Dark mornings and crisp temperatures; winter doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. Our Just for Fun courses can help you ignite your passion and give you something to look forward to in the evenings. From Christmas wreath making and creative writing, to interior design and languages, you can meet like-minded people and thrive in a fun, friendly environment.


No matter what stage you are at in your career, we can help. Our bespoke employability courses support those looking to start their career; equipping them with the latest knowledge to make them work ready. Industry experts teach our courses, covering everything from business, finance and care, to computer confidence, interview skills and more.

University LevelDid you know we offer full and part-time university level courses right on your doorstep? Not only are our courses budget friendly in comparison to a larger university; you won’t get lost in a sea of other students, meaning you will benefit from more one-to-one time with our industry trained lecturers.

College for Adults

College courses are not just for school leavers. We support thousands of adult students through their courses every year. Adults study with us for a variety of different reasons, whether that be a career change or upskilling. The best part is, you will gain access to all our industry-standard facilities and bespoke support teams, and most courses can be studied part-time to fit in with your life and commitments. There may also be student funding available, depending on your circumstances.
