We focus on supporting and developing our team members and providing them with a great place to work. Our frontline teaching team are not only sector experts, but also qualified to at least level 4 in teaching and many are mental health first aiders too.

We support over 4,500 people either into work or to develop their careers through vocational qualification programmes and continuing professional development. We train dental nurses, early years educators, and care professionals as well as their managers to gain the knowledge, skills, and behaviours to perform in their roles at their very best.

We specialise in Dental and Care and so we are well-placed to support these sectors with their unique recruitment and training requirements. We even support other training providers and FE colleges by supplying best-in-class curriculum and resources for their students.
