Workplace Learning

This form of training ensures that there is no interruption to the day-to-day running of your business or organisation. And the good news many of the courses are free.

Workplace learning can be offered to any staff, aged 19 or over, who wish to gain a formal and recognised qualification such as an NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) - adding value to the job they do for you.

A properly-certificated workforce can be the difference between winning and losing tenders.

We carry out all the necessary assessments in your workplace. The qualification is then completed by written assessments and assignments.

Courses take between six and nine months and the College adds funding in many instances to reduce the cost to employers to zero. In a small number of cases, an employer contribution may be required. 

Courses include:

  • Business Admin Level 2, 3 & 4
  • Customer Service Level 2 & 3
  • Health and Social Care Level 2, 3 & 4
  • Horticulture Level 2
  • Manufacturing Level 2
  • Team Leading Level 2
  • Trowel Occupations Level 2
  • Warehousing Level 2
