How Can We Help?
Staff Recruitment Service
We can support your business to find you the best people to meet your employment needs, providing a completely free in-depth recruitment service to save you time and valuable resources.
Maths, English and Digital Skills
Maths and English are fundamental skills required for the workplace. Almost every job requires staff to be able to communicate confidently and effectively and calculate problems efficiently. Our maths and English programmes develop the practical skills required in work, education and everyday life.
Upskill your Workforce
Continuous development in your workforce ensures that your employees are equipped with all the necessary knowledge and skills they need to carry out their role effectively.
Distance Learning courses are completed independently around work, leisure and family commitments. Learners will have access to online study materials to complete at their own pace and in any location, in line with their agreed individual learning plan. A personal tutor will be allocated to support individuals and mange progress.
