Over the years we have had the honour of working with some fantastic small and large businesses both locally and nationally, they have helped deliver exceptional work experience, apprenticeships, live briefs, industry master classes and donations of time and equipment.
Many of the businesses were nominated by staff, students and apprentices. Collaborations like this help continue to up-skill city and county residents and positively impact upon local communities and the economic landscape. Our partners have provided important employability skills for our students and apprentices that are crucial in today’s job market.
