Regardless of sex, age, or race everyone should have a pathway to better themselves and their families by gaining accredited qualifications with real world application.
It’s challenging and the courses are rigorous. If it was easy they would be of no value, but we are here to ensure that every person who wants to achieve a successful career will get the support they need.
Our commitment to our student community does not end when you finish your course. Our commitment is to give lifelong learning pathways and engagement within our Westbourne Student Community. Students have access to continuous security, leadership and management briefings, discussion forums and help with employment opportunities.
We provide training content in line with the values of Professionalism, Encouragement, Respect, Fairness, Trust, Consistency, Honesty and Cooperation.
