We fully support the concept of lifelong learning and the recognised benefits of keeping up with changes in business, greater job opportunities, and enrichment that it brings. With our provision of apprenticeships, short courses and qualifications that's exactly what we can deliver.

Learning as an adult is very different to learning at school and you'll find the collaborative approach, tailored to your needs, quite refreshing. Our focus is on ensuring that you can achieve and progress within your career, whether you are just starting out or you are looking for promotion within your sector. We are also Matix accredited and can therefore provide high quality career advice and guidance - you can read about our policy on information, advice and guidance here.

You can gain the vital skills needed to find work and and progress your career through an apprenticeship, or use the Government's Advanced Learner Loan scheme to complete a qualification.

Advanced Learner Loans

We are approved to administer these loans for people who are 19 or older on the first day of their course. The course must be for a Level 3, 4, 5 or 6 qualification, for example, an A Level or graduate certificate.

Please contact us for further information.


Apprenticeships are available for people aged 16 and over. Apprenticeships can only be completed in work. They are suitable for people who are new to the job, or for people to upskill within the workplace.

They are designed by industry to support people within work to gain the skills that are needed to do the job. They can last from 12 months to 4 years, and complete once the End Point Assessment (EPA) is completed and achieved.They start at an equivalent to GSCE level (Level 2) and progress through to degree levels (Levels 6/7).
