Reaseheath’s Business Hub is offering a raft of industry recognised, land-based qualifications to help businesses and individuals rebuild after the Covid-19 pandemic.

We offer a portfolio of sector-specific vocational qualifications from awarding bodies such as City & Guilds and the Road Transport Industry Training Board (RTITB) that deliver skills which are valued by employers.

Our courses are designed to reflect the needs of industry and to be relevant to employers. We aim to support all rural businesses, from large to niche, and try where possible to tailor courses to suit individual companies.

Where individuals are concerned, our qualifications are flexible, offered across a range of levels and easy to balance with working life. For some they can lead directly into employment, for others they offer the opportunity to develop skills to a higher standard.

Many deliver the specialist skills required for a Certificate of Competence (CoC), often a regulatory requirement for a Licence to Practise in a particular industry. Offering a mix of practical skills and theoretical knowledge, they demonstrate that the holder has the ability to work to an industry recognised standard.

Our Business Hub also offers a wide range of accredited courses such as functional skills, essential digital skills and CPD courses for employers looking to upskill their workforce. Courses are offered singly or as part of a CPD package.

We can also provide access to our applied research, innovation and knowledge transfer services and our high-quality facilities can be used for bespoke professional training, trials and product development.

Our range of courses, which is constantly expanding, offers certification in areas including:

  • Chainsaw operation
