The academies are run on a 2-1 or 3-1 ratio to available jobs so even if you only have one vacancy you can still access an academy opportunity. The college has an extremely successful track record in running academies and has worked with a wide range of renowned employers including The De Vere Group, Wates Construction, Argos, TK Maxx, Premier Inn, Tesco, Pizza Hut, KFC, Travelodge, Schuh, NHS and Matalan.
