"We are very pleased with the partnership arrangement with Boston College. The team are efficient and helpful. The workshops and other partner events are extremely useful."
- Coral Walker, Director
"Since starting the carpentry course, I have never looked back. I have found a renewed focus and aim in life in an otherwise dull existence. I have learnt skills I never thought I could possess, all of which will prove very useful as I progress towards ultimately finding a fulfilling career. The course is taught in such a way that is informative and interesting without being overbearing or oppressive. The tutor(s) are knowledgeable and well versed in their respective trades. I have also during my time here been able to buy materials and make toys for my daughter and other keepsakes for other family members, improving my skills on the way. It is a thoroughly enjoyable course and genuinely look forward to coming every day.”    
- Nick, Student

A non-accredited course, such as bespoke training designed to upskill your workforce around a particular business need or issue, may not lead to a final qualification but is no less valuable to your operation. It depends on what's right for your business.​
