Colleagues discussing their ideas

enabling businesses to build highly-skilled workforces

At Petroc, we’re proud to provide bespoke courses, industry placements, certificated qualifications, and workforce planning for employees and businesses across Devon.

The South West has an outstanding reputation in the Engineering, Manufacturing, Digital and Business enterprise sectors; and our region finds itself home to global players in the pharmaceutical, agri-tech, aeronautical, marine, FMCG, filtration, and electronics-based manufacturing and engineering industries. 

Add to this our excellent Health & Social Care and Education provisions - alongside our thriving Hair & Beauty and Hospitality & Catering sectors - and it’s clear to see that we have the infrastructure for major economic growth in our region. 

Petroc is passionate about developing skills and providing industry focussed training to match the ambitions and operational requirements of our region’s businesses; particularly the small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector – that is the lifeblood of our local economy.   

As one of the South West’s leading providers of Further Education and Higher Education, we want to build long-standing relationships with our local businesses; to develop and nurture local talent, support operational innovation, and create the fully qualified, well-trained, and highly skilled workforce of the future.
