We have established relationships with employers and universities to create a connected community that provides you with strong links to work or further study. We are committed to ensuring our students are prepared for successful careers through work placements, internships and connections to industry.

Your team can undertake training with us either as a trainee within a scheduled course or our expert lecturers and associates can deliver a bespoke training programme to meet your business needs.

Training can take place on-campus, at your place of work or virtually via Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

Community Impact Initiative

Learning and Development is a tool for positive change and Edinburgh College is committed to supporting communities around Scotland.  We work with a wide variety of SMEs, charities, and non-profit organisations to deliver training which has a critical impact on the ability of businesses to respond strategically to challenges faced in society. The benefit this brings to communities most in need is central to the purpose of the Community Impact Initiative, and the college’s core values.

As a result, we have been able to continue offering online Mental Health and Wellbeing workshops to our employees, which have been very well received in these difficult times
