Fresh Start employer


As one of the fastest growing College’s in the UK and with 30,000+ students enrolled annually, we help over 1000 employers across 50 vocational sectors bridge important skills gaps to thrive and grow.

As a Queen’s Award winner for Inclusive Practice, we also know that there are a growing number of success stories from employers who have recruited some of their best talent from those with disadvantaged backgrounds who just needed a 'fresh start’ – achieved by a supportive employer who has looked at their CV and circumstances with an open mind.

As an employer, we understand that some people struggle to return to employment after various life events e.g. illness/mental health/disability, exiting prison, being homeless, caring for children/elderly relatives, transitioning from the armed services and more - therefore our pledge is that we will always look at CV’s for job applications with an open mind.
