Our vision is to continue to be the training provider of choice for businesses of all sizes in South Cumbria and the Furness Peninsula, offering a professional and friendly approach to training and development solutions.  

With a changing landscape around Apprenticeships and qualifications, it’s important you seek out professional help to understand what the changes could mean.

The way Apprenticeships are funded is changing in May 2017 and will help you through every step of the journey, from recruitment to placing; offering an end to end service to help your business take on apprentices and manage the apprenticeship levy. Contact a member of our Business and Employment Support Team who will be happy come and visit you to talk about the help we can provide.

Our Apprenticeship programmes provide young people and adults with the skills required for local business needs, helping them to become skilled workers for the future. Taking on an Apprentice can make a real and positive contribution to your organisation. By training over 700 apprentices each year we have the experience to support our local business community, many of whom may be taking on an apprentice for the first time. We can also provide information on the changes to apprenticeship which will come into force in spring 2017.

We recognise that all organisations and businesses are different and they require individual training solutions to help them achieve their goals, we want to work with them developing professional relationships and working together, help to respond to business needs. 

Our reputation throughout the region as a leading provider of industry training has grown largely out of high quality provision with a strong emphasis on employer responsiveness. We have an experienced team of advisers, who will work with you to develop a package of training ideally suited to your individual business needs.

We can also provide a range of programmes from short courses through to full degrees. Many courses provide flexible training solutions that can fit around the workplace and can be provided in house.

Furness College works in partnership with a broad range of businesses and organisations in the area including large companies, SME owners and people who are self-employed and may be recruiting for the first time.
