Many of these courses will also be free, opening the doors for people to access this high-quality training.

Sir Paul Phillips, Principal and Chief Executive of Weston College, said: “We are excited to launch this new offer, which provides valuable opportunities for people over the age of 19.

“We are passionate about creating brighter futures for all, and these new courses are a great way for adults that are wanting more from their career, to retrain in an area that they are really passionate about.

“There also exciting opportunities for people that are currently unemployed, through our Employment Services Team, who work closely with employers across the region to attract and train staff.

“This September we are expanding our teaching locations as well, with courses being delivered across our major campuses in Weston, but also in Bristol, and some delivered online.
