Working in partnership with leading businesses in the region.
With our operations being based in the heart of Devon, we not only witness the support and training requirements of our region’s businesses – but we experience them ourselves.
It’s this localised knowledge, combined with our extensive network of professional partners, that puts us in the ideal position to provide an educational curriculum that works for you.
Our courses are specifically designed to tackle the current skills shortages in our key regional industries – particularly those experienced by rural regions – and are in line with Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) priorities.
We’ve drawn upon applied research to anticipate your future skills requirements, and provide a learning provision that is tailored to the needs of employers throughout Devon and the South West.
