Improving your bottom line

We have businesses and their skill requirements in our line of sight. Fresh from undertaking a £22 million investment in our campus facilities and services, we now want to show businesses how we can make a real difference to their bottom line by supporting them to recruit and train their workforce of the future. We do this with a range of innovative services provided by a top team of sector experienced professionals.

Growing economy

Business is growing in Greater Manchester, it’s on an upward curve and Oldham College is ready and able to help your business profitably exploit market opportunities.

Do your staff need training to handle the demands of a growing business? Is recruiting people with the right skills a problem? Could a better-skilled workforce help with productivity, competitiveness and costs? Would apprentices help counterbalance an ageing workforce? These are some of the reasons businesses work with Oldham College's development and training specialists.

Learning for real

National and regional changes in vocational education and training policy are now placing a much stronger emphasis on technical competence and academic rigour, including a strong focus on English and Maths. Oldham College’s mantra, on “learning for real” is about preparing their students for what they need to know and what they need to be able to do to enter work and apprenticeship, enabling them to become skilled in their chosen occupation or profession.

Expert advice

Specialist staff are central to the our work, focusing on vocational skills and training, apprenticeships and recruitment. We have developed our business services by listening to what businesses want. We also utilises labour market intelligence and Employer Advisory Boards also advise on curriculum design to ensure industry expertise improves teaching and learning and enhances student and apprentice experiences.
