New business school to support county businesses

Gloucestershire College is launching a business school to support county employers and help them achieve their business goals and growth targets.

The business school is an extension of the GC Business Hub and will deliver a complete training solution for all industries, incorporating a range of accredited leadership, management and professional qualifications.

Courses are designed to be flexible so employers can choose how and when staff train - online, on-site or on campus. They will be taught by industry experts and supported by state-of-the-art learning technologies across GC's three campuses in Gloucester, Cheltenham and the Forest of Dean. Designed by leaders from across the business spectrum, they aim to be practical, challenging and motivating.

Since the changes to apprenticeship funding earlier this year, all employers now have access to funding for new and existing staff training, resulting in an increased need for tailored training packages and apprenticeships that upskill workforces across all sectors.

Andy Bates, Chief Financial Officer of GC (pictured), said: "We are excited to launch the Business School in order to make a measurable impact on businesses and learners.

"For individuals, the Business School will nurture professional development, boost your professionalism and credibility, and help you to build relationships and confidence networking with peers and influential stakeholders.

"We already work with hundreds of Gloucestershire's best businesses and look forward to strengthening these relationships - and nurturing new ones - through the Business School."
