Skill Centres

Our Skill Centres, based in the North East and Yorkshire, ensure the teaching of skills that last a lifetime. Courses specialise in construction trades, such as joinery and bricklaying, and in uniformed services preparing learners for the Armed Forces.

We also run a variety of short courses to boost employability skills. We offer routeways in retail, call centre, IT, childcare, administration and many more. Courses, which last from two to eight weeks, help you gain the knowledge, skills and experience needed to progress in your desired career.
