Our partners

At the college, we understand the value of partnerships, and this is borne out in the Consortium.

We value the uniqueness and expertise of our partners, and we genuinely seek to work as equals. The partners listed below deliver high quality provision, and have a proven track record. Some are current partners, while others have a limited, time-bound contract due to expire.

All our partners delivering employer-related provision can help businesses get the training they need to flourish. Some specialise in certain sectors (like care or hospitality), while others cover a broader range (such as further education colleges). All will be able to help businesses identify and locate the training they need, either from within the Consortium or through other partners.

Our partners also cover training for the unemployed and other ESFA and ESF funded provision and have a depth of experience and expertise with which they tackle ‘head-on’ some deep-rooted social issues, such as youth and adult unemployment.
