Truro and Penwith College has released its line-up of new 19+ career and professional development courses for adults that will launch at the new multi-million-pound STEM & Health Skills Centre in Bodmin in September.

Designed for large groups to boost business or for individual applicants seeking career development, the courses have been introduced in collaboration with the college’s employer partners in north and east Cornwall, targeting sectors and job roles where skills are in demand and quality employment opportunities available.

Learners and professionals applying for the new courses will benefit from the £6.3 million centre’s state-of-the-art, purpose-built facilities including engineering workshops, health simulation suite and modern digital technology.

The suite of over 30 new career and professional development courses includes a blend of sector specific and business skills training, addressing skills needs in the local area and support for the many businesses operating in food production & hospitality, engineering & construction, marketing, education & teaching and health & social care.

Hayley McKinstry, director of business partnerships and apprenticeships at Truro and Penwith College, commented: “Skills are at the heart of any successful economy and it’s vital that local people are armed with the industry-relevant skills needed by Cornwall’s employers to boost business, raise aspirations and encourage both businesses and local people to look, reach and go further.”

The new courses and qualifications are now available to book on the college’s website.
