We respect the right of the learner to determine what, when and how is best for them to learn.


We cater to the individual needs and preferences of every learner to optimise performance and improvement.


We are aware of our duties to our learners, employers, staff and wider communities, going above and beyond just doing the job.


We take our learners through their apprenticeships with specialised knowledge, precision and integrity. A successful end result only comes from an extensive, guided journey.


We enjoy working with others and believe relationships and partnerships are fundamental to the success of all.

“Through our core values we provide an inclusive environment for learners to reach their full potential
and achieve great results”

We are dedicated to delivering education and learning programmes and services that will
meet the needs of the people we train and the companies we support. We are committed
to providing a learning environment where people will feel encouraged to enjoy learning
and thereby improve their self-motivation, professional and personal development.
It is the intent and corporate goal of this organisation to ensure that the training we deliver
meets the expectations and learning requirements of every learner, as a result of which their
knowledge, understanding and skills will improve and enhance.
