Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to develop skills and knowledge in a real working environment, suiting new apprentices to a company of existing staff members who are looking to upskill. Our programmes can be tailored to suit your business' needs and a knowledgeable tutor will support your apprentice throughout their apprenticeship with all elements of work and assessments.

Distance Learning:

Our distance learning courses are available to anyone over the age of 19, and all Level 2 courses are available free of charge as long as they are completed within your given deadline. There is a £25 fee should you wish to complete the course paper-based.  There is no need to formally attend college; these courses can be completed online at home at a time that suits you. You will be provided with a knowledgeable tutor who will support you throughout the course, providing feedback and guidance where necessary.

Short Courses:

Our short courses aim to improve employer skills and range from first aid in the workplace, to food safety courses. Each course runs multiple times throughout the year, and some courses can be delivered to you in your workplace for a minimum of six people. These courses are typically delivered at Selby College and are provided at very competitive rates.

We have a reputation for delivering high quality learning courses, whether you are a small or medium enterprise, just starting out, or a large organisation, a well-trained workforce is proven to put you ahead of your competitors.
