Part Time and Short Courses

Highly experienced vocational teaching staff deliver part time and short courses that offer practical skills to develop your workforce. These can be delivered at the college or in the workplace.

Part time courses cover an assortment of vocations and are run both during the daytime and during evenings. Many courses lead to nationally recognised qualifications so your employees can meet industry standards. The selection of courses is regularly updated but usually includes popular vocations such as beauty therapy, catering, engineering, hairdressing, and health and childcare.

Short courses last from several weeks to a half day and can help your workforce meet statutory requirements or keep up to date with legislation. Courses include subjects such as CISCO, electrical installation, food safety and more.
