About us

We deliver Apprenticeship training from our Grimsby and Hull centres across the Humber, in a range of occupational sectors including Business Administration, Customer Service, Data and Digital, Hairdressing and Leadership & Management.

We deliver Traineeship programmes for young people who are not yet ready to undertake an Apprenticeship and have the facility to offer training through Advanced Learner Loans in the sectors outlined for Apprenticeships.

Our vision drives our passion and commitment to the sector: "To provide a dynamic approach to the delivery of high quality learner and employer centred learning and development"
