Business and Employers

Business Development Unit (BDU)


The Business Development Unit is a single point of contact providing practical help and advice for employers to enable them to develop the skills of their employees.

The major strength of the Unit is in the team of industry specialists who work with organisations to identify the most appropriate learning route for employees and offer a full range of interventions from short courses to certificated work based learning.

We develop bespoke training solutions with our customers to ensure we deliver the training required to assist in business growth and product development.

Employer Engagement and Work Placements

Well managed Employer Engagement is essential in both developing and strengthening links with industry. This area of work focuses on expanding the College’s student work placement and work experience provision, and also investigating ways of developing innovative models of engagement with employers in the area of programme design, development and delivery.
