You will get a free consultation with a BE Skills Advisor to establish your business needs. If there is not a suitable off-the-shelf product to meet your needs we will work with you to produce a tailored solution. This can be as simple as converting a standard course using your own business terminology, people and processes to a brand new course developed for you.
The College has helped hundreds of local businesses increase sales and profitability, productivity and efficiency, reduce staff turnover and make cost savings.

It’s not just about training and Apprenticeships. Businesses have engaged with us over the years in a variety of ways to everyone’s benefit. Our Business Sector Forums give us the opportunity to listen to employers who in turn help us shape and modernise our provision to improve the employability of our students. Local business partners are supporting our staff and students to provide work placements and professional updating opportunities, mock interviews, talks and tours and they provide real-life student projects.
