How We Can Support Your Organisation

Edinburgh College is a publically-funded training centre with a variety of industry expertise. This allows us to provide different options for businesses big and small to take advantage of, whatever their budget.

We offer scheduled training. These are courses which usually begin in January and September each year. Delegates have the opportunity to apply and sit these courses with classmates from different organisations providing a reflective and engaging experience.

Bespoke training

We also offer bespoke training which is specific training that we can deliver to your organisation to suit your business needs. This can consist of units from particular qualifications or training which is built from the ground up for your business.

How our training is delivered

Our training is designed to be accessible and flexible for your business. We can deliver teaching:

  • Virtually via Microsoft Teams and Zoom
  • On-campus
  • At your workplace

How our training works

When training with the College, the first step is to meet with a Business Development Advisor from our Commercial Development team. These members of staff are experts in working with employers across Scotland to identify skills gaps in their organisations and to build packages of relevant training courses for their staff. An initial discussion may include ideas the employer has about required training, documentation of a skills analysis which has been carried out, and suggestions from the Business Development Advisor about similar training taking place in other organisations.

Following this discussion, your dedicated Advisor will provide you with a proposal for training and costs. They will also inform you of any funding opportunities available through the College and assist in applying for these. Many employers also find it useful at this stage to speak directly with a College trainer or lecturer to discuss the technical details of the proposed training and how the training can be adapted to reflect the needs of your organisation. Our staff are very experienced in their fields and will work with you to ensure your training package suits your requirements.

Once training has been agreed upon, your Business Development Advisor will become the Account Manager for your training, giving you a fixed point of contact with the College. This ensures that your training runs smoothly from beginning to end and ensures smooth communication throughout your training programme.

Your training will be run by one of our experienced lecturers or trainers who you will have had the chance to speak to beforehand. Training will take place in a virtual space which suits both your organisation and the trainer. Once face-to-face becomes possible again, training may also take place at your business premises or at a College campus.
