The College has partnered with a host of local, regional and national businesses to create our award-winning Employer Skills Academies.
An exclusive innovative teaching and learning programme, the academies aim to provide an outstanding technical and professional education for our students.
We currently have 21 active Employer Skills Academies with 18 different employers. The academies cover a variety of sectors and subject areas from construction, IT and catering to professional makeup, business and sport. Two of our Employer Skills Academies have been built to support all of our 15,000 College students.
We have previously partnered with Liberty Speciality Steels and PJ Taste from 2019-2021, and UNIHEADS from 2020-2022, you can find more information about those academy partnerships by clicking the link below.
Each Employer Skills Academy has its own designated space within the College that is branded by the employer sponsor, creating a professional business environment for our College students.
