Off the shelf training

We offer a wide range of off the shelf training for you and your staff to take advantage of.

Your staff can learn new skills with our learning programmes, which can be about gaining qualifications, or just general courses.

Training can also take place at your business premises or at one of our nine training centres across Kirklees.

We can advise on funding your courses, including capitalising on the latest funding through the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership’s Sills Service of which Kirklees College is a ‘registered provider’.

Bespoke training

Bespoke training lets organisations take elements of ‘off the shelf’ training one step further by tailoring training courses to their specific business needs and goals.

Unique training packages can solve specific organisational problems; it may be some of your training is non-accredited and doesn’t result in a qualification but helps you achieve your business goal.

If you need bespoke training get in touch with us!

Packaged for you

Regardless of what training requirements you have, we can come up with a bespoke package for your company.
