The Academy specifically seeks to deliver high quality, up-to-date and value for money learning & development opportunities to enable us to meet our key objective of “developing our people to be the best”.

We strive to provide excellent learning opportunities to everyone who attends the Academy and in context to their work / learning environment, whether that is our own employees, members of the public, partner organisations and/or neighbouring businesses.

We are also proud to offer a wide range of work placements, traineeships and apprenticeships, as well as a highly successful volunteer programme to our local communities. All these supported programmes provide structured pathways for continuous development and enhanced employment opportunities.

We have a number of other training and development opportunities in development which will be available later in the year. Our Academy 2015/16 course brochure will also be available soon.
