Work-based training

We provide a comprehensive range of work-based training courses. These result in vocational qualifications such as Certificates, Awards and Diplomas.

Work-based training is flexible. It is suitable for people who already have skills they would like to develop as well as beginners.

These courses skill people in a particular field to national occupational standards.


Apprenticeships comprise several aspects. You can adapt these to reflect an employee鈥檚 job and the skills they need to perform. Each apprenticeship is based on national occupational standards. Employers will learn the knowledge and understanding needed to be effective in the workplace. They will also learn current best practice as well as how to adapt to meet future requirements.

Assessment for an apprenticeship takes place in the workplace. It fits into the working day so employees do not need much time away from work. Skills are assessed through:

  • Work-based collection of evidence
  • Workplace observation
  • Investigation of skills by a College assessor
  • There are also end point assessments.

Professional short courses

We also run a full programme of short courses for professional development. These can build the skills of workers and cover a variety of subjects across all sectors.
