Training with Petroc

At Petroc, we’re proud of the South West’s outstanding reputation in the Engineering, Manufacturing, Digital and Business enterprise sectors; and how North Devon, in particular, 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. 

But what the South West needs is the professional-skills development, and industry-focused training, to match the ambitions and operational requirements of our region’s businesses.

At Petroc, we provide innovative and industry-led education, to help deliver a skilled local workforce, economic growth, and prosperity to the South West. We monitor the regional, national and international job market to understand what future roles will need to be filled, and we ensure our students are trained to fill these positions.

Every student has their own past experience of education, their own goals and aspirations, their own set of circumstances outside of work or study, and their own level of proficiency in their chosen subject. That’s why we offer such an expansive range of qualifications – from Entry Level Maths and English to Honours Degrees – and can provide a variety of delivery methods and course durations, including part-time college-based study, remote distance learning, and workplace apprenticeships. And, of course, our educational programmes are specifically designed to cause minimal disruption to your business operations and output.
