South Devon Collegehttp://www.southdevon.ac.uk/
South Devon College, located in the South West, devotes itself fully to catering to the needs of the local business organisations. As a result of its untiring efforts, it has received the business quality kite mark ‘Customer First’ in its very first attempt. It has built a very stable bridge between the needs of the business organisations of the area and the budding population, by training them in consonance with what the businesses demand.
The apprentice programmes of South Devon College are multi-faceted and perhaps the best in the South West. Each apprentice gets a Training Officer specially allocated to him/her so that proper and adequate skills can be acquired. Moreover, these Training Officers support the apprentices in every aspect of the training programme and they work closely in respect of both the apprenticeship curriculum and the needs of the business.
Apart from the normal academic courses, South Devon College offers Business advantage courses which are aimed towards helping the local employers and businesses. These include Health and Safety, First Aid, Food and Hygiene, Business Skills and IT courses. The employers also have the option of getting the courses conducted at their premises.
