Learning with us

We will create a learning environment where you can learn where you like, in a style that is right for you.

We are a training provider that can support you in achieving your educational goals, whether that is an apprenticeship or a short course to give you a better understanding of a subject or to just sharpen your skills.

Training Programmes and CPD

We offer a range of specialist courses and workshops to support across the whole school. Including courses and workshops whether you are a staff member, parents or pupil.

All of our courses can be taken outside of the classroom on desktop, tablet, and mobile and can be accessed anywhere at any time.

We’ve partnered with specialists in education to make sure our training and resources are up to date with industry changes, and provide you with the relevant knowledge and actions to take forward in the classroom.



Apprenticeships are a great way to earn while you learn and provide you with the skills you need for your chosen career. They are available to you in hundreds of sectors and now go all the way through to degree level.

The other beauty of apprenticeships is that if you are already employed you can still access the training that is offered without having to change your current employment status. It also doesn’t mean that you are going back to the first run of the ladder, many managers and business owners access apprenticeship training for their own development.

The possibilities are endless and we are excited for you.
