South West College have an important and fruitful relationship with local employers. We understand that employers recognise apprentices as the exact type of highly trained, highly motivated employees they want, and we know that we can offer courses that allow for employees to retrain and upskill throughout their careers. As such, we work closely with many employers who regularly take on apprentices from South West College. We also listen intently to local industry when it comes to creating our courses, both apprenticeships and otherwise.
