North East

We have two centres in the North East; Stockton and Newcastle. We offer pre-employment training and Sector Based Work Academies (SBWAs) in conjunction with the DWP.

All of the SBWAs offer our learners the opportunity to undertake training relevant to vacancies being advertised with a guaranteed job interview on completion of the course. Work experience placements are also available.

Our courses are comfortable and welcoming whether in a classroom environment or through distance learning which allows you to complete the training within the comfort of your own home, with regular contact from one of our tutors.

Our Skills centres have been designed specifically with learners in mind, aiming to create safe and positive learning environments. Should you choose a course that is in a classroom environment this will be delivered in our centre which is open Monday to Friday 9.30 – 16.00, with access to free tea and coffee.
