Employer Skills Academies

The College has partnered with a host of local, regional and national businesses to create Employer Skills Academies. An exclusive innovative teaching and learning programme that provides outstanding technical and professional education for college students. 

Employer Skills Academies

OUR ACADEMY SPONSORS

We currently have 15 Employer Skills Academies with 13 different employers. The academies cover a variety of sectors and subject areas from construction to professional makeup. Two of the academies have been built to support all of our College students.

Each academy has its own designated space within the college that is branded by the employer sponsor, creating a professional business environment for our College students.

Please select one of our academy programmes to find out more about that Employer Skills Academy, including any press releases, news and employer quotes.
