As the College for Business we help you find the right solution for your staff development needs; whether that’s accessing funding or supporting you with recruitment or professional development training. And because every business is different, our experienced staff deliver flexible, bespoke programmes. From entry to degree level we cover key business areas, including construction, engineering, health, logistics, business & professional services, hospitality and the creative industries. We’re also a leading provider of digital and green skills.
We currently have over 600 apprentices enrolled on foundation and higher level apprenticeships. They’re a brilliant way of channelling new talent and developing your existing workforce.
Our dedicated team can help you with every step of setting up your apprenticeship. Finding the right programme, recruiting the right person or people, enrolment and accessing funding. Programmes cover construction, engineering, health, hospitality, digital and professional services and our tutors have vast industry knowledge and experience. Training is delivered at both purpose-built campuses, in state-of-the-art classrooms, and in the workplace.
Supporting Future Talent
Our 4,000 plus 16-18-year-old students are gaining academic and technical training, but also the skills they need to hit the ground running when they start work. Good news for businesses.
We educate young people from every background, helping them build on their potential and begin rewarding careers. Over 2,000 employers are involved in our future talent programme, providing work experience, helping deliver our T-Levels and traineeships, and sharing insights. By joining the scheme, you can make a social contribution to the region, but also get a head-start on future recruitment. Our dedicated team will oversee the arrangements for all placements, making sure they fit your business needs.
Developing Your Workforce
We run pre-employment training programmes and inductions as well as bespoke packages to re-skill or up-skill current members of staff. They can all help you create a more effective workforce.
We are registered regional and national provider of industry Bootcamp training and offer flexible, cost-effective programmes that can be delivered across multiple platforms. You can make use of our Professional Learning Academy or our virtual learning environment (e-learning). Or you might like us to deliver training in your workplace. We can even do a mix. In addition to the training itself, our Commercial and Business Development Team can do business reviews, give recruitment advice and perform learning needs analyses.
