FAQs

What sort of private companies sponsor Career Colleges? Can any company get involved or do they have to meet certain criteria?

Private companies are being encouraged to engage in Career Colleges to advise on industry standards and the skills required to work in their sector. They provide practical advice on training requirements, mentor young people, support curriculum design and delivery, offer learning resources and provide work experience opportunities.

Support isn’t limited to private sector businesses: there is strong interest from public sector employers and charities, too – and 40% of members of Career College boards are local employers.
