We want to help you train and sustain a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce that makes a positive contribution to the success of your business.

We work with organisations of all sizes across Northamptonshire to address skills gaps and shape the future talent pipeline through apprenticeships, professional courses and work placements.

By closely analysing the needs of your business, our Business Centre can work with you to identify any qualifications required, deliver training where needed and find the perfect candidates for your vacancies.

Effective training for your employees can:

  • Raise productivity
  • Reduce costs
  • Increase customer engagement
  • Strengthen staff morale
  • Boost your reputation
  • Address skills shortages
  • Improve staff retention

Our offer

We currently provide a wide range of Apprenticeships across a number of key sectors, and help hundreds of local businesses to deliver Apprenticeships and access the Apprenticeship Levy. Whether you want to recruit a new apprentice, or are looking to further develop the talent already within your organisation, we can help.

The College works closely with local employers to offer work placements to our students, which students will undertake as part of their study programme at the college. We are also taking part in the Industry Placement pilot, as part of the new T-Level Technical Study programme, which will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to enter employment or progress onto further training and apprenticeships.

Our track record

  • 94% of businesses agree that we offer training and assessment in a flexible way
  • 88% of employers would recommend a Northampton College apprentice
  • 88% of apprentices remained in employment after completing their Apprenticeship
