Enhance your knowledge

Our qualifications provide an excellent foundation to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed for success. Whether you’re just starting out, or seeking to progress in your current company, our business qualifications can help you achieve your career objectives.

Our nationally recognised qualifications are entirely work-based, allowing you to gain practical experience whilst being employed and earning a wage. We provide information, advice and guidance to support you in achieving your goals and training is free, funded by the government and your employer. Our team of Trainer Coaches have demonstrable experience within the business sector and will support you throughout the duration of your programme.

Functional skills

When you begin a qualification with us, you may be required to complete Functional Skills qualifications in maths and English. These are a mandatory part of apprenticeships in England, unless you already hold a qualification in these areas at this level.

Functional Skills lay the foundations for a successful career. For those undertaking business apprenticeships, day-to-day tasks call for a basic understanding of Functional Skills, for example English is essential for tasks such as drafting emails and creating presentations. Mathematical skills are crucial for tasks like budgeting, financial record-keeping, and data analysis.
