Why choose Skills & Learning?

Bespoke, discrete, flexible courses

Our vast range of subjects means we can support your business in many ways through education. Our team of highly qualified and experienced tutors will be sure to deliver a 5* service to your team.

No hard sell

One of our Business Outreach Officers can work with you to understand your requirements and provide a free no obligation quote for any of our courses bespoke to your staff needs and availability – we never employ hard sales tactics.

Our track record of success

As BCP and Dorset Council’s adult education provider, we have been supporting businesses for over 13 years. You can trust our track record of satisfaction and success.

Bespoke training sessions

We offer bespoke training courses for organizations. Whether you have a group of staff you’d like to train, or you would like to update your whole business’s knowledge, we can help. We can come in to your workplace, welcome you to one of our centres or deliver training virtually.

Our course search page lists all the current courses we offer. If you’d like to train a single member or very small group of staff you can book and enrol onto a course online. However, if you’re looking to enrol a larger group of people on a course (5+), please contact us for a simpler booking process.

We are always looking to expand the types of training we offer so do ask if you can’t find something listed here but you think it would benefit your organisation. If we have the staff with the right skills and qualifications, we’ll do all we can to deliver a course to meet your needs. If we can’t, we can signpost you to someone who can.

Distance Learning Courses

We offer many distance learning courses across many subjects. This is the perfect way for your employees to enrol on a course and learn when suits them – there are no set class times or schedule, as distance learning courses are self-paced.

You will be provided with online or paper-based learning materials and guidance on how to use these. You will be allocated an e-tutor who will support you through the qualification. You will complete reading, activities and assessments online. You will have assistance from your e-tutor who will give you feedback on your work, help you if you are struggling and let you know when you have achieved learning outcomes. You should aim to complete your distance learning course within 6-9 months.
