Five reasons to choose us

Hire an apprentice

Our learners have worked on live projects with our partner organisations like Microsoft and CCL Evidence Talks. They’ve even worked with Sainsbury’s and Domino’s Pizza to hone their digital skills. They’ve got to grips with the issues that impact real businesses, working with industry experts and making connections. Plus, they’ve had the chance to work with local businesses and have an impact on the community – now it’s your turn.

Student receiving support from a coach

We know a lot of education institutions say this – but we really mean it. We have a range of staff to support you on your journey, from our Dual Professionals, who have a wealth of industry experience, to our experienced teaching staff, student support team, admissions team and guest lecturers. They’re all here to help you achieve your goals no matter how big they are.
