Our team engage with employers to ensure that everything taught is tailored to the requirements of those providing the jobs. We support our learners, helping them to become work-ready and teach the skills and knowledge they need to kickstart their career.

The goal is for employers to engage with Carlisle College, Furness College, Kendal College, Lakes College and University of Cumbria to help shape Further and Higher Education in the county for the benefit of businesses and those looking to enter the world of work, change course or progress in their desired career.

Lakes College and the National College for Nuclear offer fantastic courses. They’ve got a great support network and I definitely would not have the career that I have today without them.
