Support for those seeking employment

If you have been made redundant recently or are at risk of redundancy in the near future, we can support you with courses especially designed to get you back into work as soon as possible. For further details visit our Employability page.

If you are already out of work and feeling discouraged by the shortage of opportunities, a brush up on your skills would enable you to be more successful at getting interviews, see our intensive programme to get you started on the pathway to success.

Skills training for those in work

The workplace these days is a rapidly changing environment and it pays to maintain your skills and gain qualifications you always wish you’d had. Our Skills for Work programme offers a wide range of work-related training from short courses through to NVQs and other qualifications. For further details visit our Qualifications and skills for work page.

If you need GCSE English or maths to take your training options forward into higher education or other professional avenues please, visit our GCSE page for further information. GCSEs in English and maths are free to those who have not yet achieved above a D grade in these subjects.
