We offer a wide range of programmes to accommodate the many needs of women, so if you’re just embarking into education or you wish to retrain in order to gain promotion, our staff will diagnose your educational needs and tailor a programme to suit them.


We are proud of our achievements and have repeatedly been awarded a grade 1 status and have been ranked in the top 10 % of educational providers in the country."
