Providing Skills For Individuals & Businesses

With our extensive network of training centres across Greater Manchester and beyond, we are one of the largest providers of work based learning for young people and adults in the North West.  

Our provision ranges from programmes for young people who need additional support to reach their career goals, to honours level degree courses.  

Apprenticeships are a key aspect of our offer, and in addition to the traditional Apprenticeship routes, we are constantly introducing new Apprenticeship opportunities in areas such as Banking, Insurance, Enterprise and HR.  

A growing number of entrants to our Higher Education courses have progressed via the Apprenticeship route.  

We also provide support to employers who want to raise the skill level of their existing workforce, and offer a wide range of customised or off-the-shelf short business courses.

The Skills Company delivers an extensive programme of courses covering everything from regulatory training to leadership and management and international trade.
