Since opening our doors in 2007, we’ve trained over 3,000 students and helped launch over 1,000 businesses. That’s quite an achievement and something the whole team is very proud of!
We’ve also achieved our goal of becoming Scotland’s first independent training centre offering nationally-recognised trades qualifications to adult learners, filling a gap in the market.
We currently offer courses ranging in duration from 1 week to 6 months incorporating SQA Professional Development Awards, City & Guilds Diplomas as well as NVQ/SVQ vocational qualifications. But never known to rest on our laurels, we’re busy planning new, more advanced, courses for experienced tradespeople as well as bespoke training for established trades businesses. Watch this space!
Then, as now, our ethos is to provide technically-advanced training of the highest quality to help people launching new careers, leaving the armed forces, or following on from redundancy.
We believe that one of the key elements of our success is the business training and technical support we offer (both during and after the course), ensuring every student is given the best chance to move on to a career in their chosen sector, or to start their own business.
Gillian, our Business Development Director, said: “What I love most, is seeing students transition into their new careers, feeling confident and empowered. Over the years we've built up a fantastic community and our after-course support is something we're proud of. We often receive messages from students, sometimes months or years after they leave, thanking us for helping them change their lives.”
