students in classOur specialised qualifications

When we started in 1989 it we quickly found that there were no suitable off-the-shelf qualifications available that could teach the new working practices and technologies, so we wrote our own specialised City & Guilds courses that address the exact needs of students. These qualifications are written in such a way that any new industry working practices and technologies can immediately be taught. They are challenging, require dedication and hard work and equip students with essential knowledge and skills. Read more here
