Corona Virus Impact (19th March 2020)

We are following Government advice for education providers and changes are emerging following the Prime Minister's daily briefings. Following the update  on 18th March from the Prime Minister to close all schools, colleges, nurseries etc as a private training provider we are following this advice too. The safety of our staff, trainers, clients and learners is a priority and therefore as a precaution, the following contingencies have been implemented:

For our Open Programme training courses, these have all been cancelled until 30th June 2020. All bookings will be carried forward to the next scheduled date and you will be notified by email. By way of reassurance, any cancellations you make during these difficult times will not incur any penalties.

Functional Skills Exams will still be available on a pre-booked basis, however before you travel to the training centre, please check with us by emailing us at to check the timing.

Apprenticeship Programmes will continue to be delivered using online methods and our trainers will use a combination of recorded webinar and live remote broadcast.
