Recognised as a UK leader in specialist technical training, Reaseheath College and University Centre, in Cheshire, are helping businesses to boost productivity and to tackle the national skills shortage through its range of industry focused apprenticeships.

We are supporting the Government’s “Build Back Better’ post Covid campaign through our customised training and apprenticeship programmes, delivered by experienced and knowledgeable staff in superb industry standard facilities.


Upskilling workforce aids expansion 

Our apprenticeships can help drive your business efficiency by upskilling your workforce with a framework of nationally recognised qualifications that develop industry specific technical skills. Because the training is bespoke to your business, you can expand with confidence because you are growing your next generation of skilled employees. 

Our employer partners tell us that employing an apprentice delivers numerous benefits including: 

  • greater productivity 
  • improved profitability 
  • clear return on investment 
  • inspiring staff loyalty  
  • increasing work standards.  

We offer a wide range of apprenticeships ranging from Level 2 to Level 5 (degree level), so there is clear career progression from introductory to management level.  

DID YOU KNOW?  There is up to 100% funding for some apprenticeship programmes.  


Industry standard facilities 

With a recent £80 million investment across campus, we have outstanding facilities including our:  

Centre for Engineering Innovation and Agri-Technology, which leads the way in training and technology 

Food Centre, which holds the highest benchmark for food safety and hygiene within a food production facility – the prestigious British Retail Consortium Global Standard (Version 8) Grade AA.  

Vertical Farming Centre takes precision horticulture further by showcasing innovative growing techniques such as vertical crop growing, hydroponics, aeroponics, robotics and automated environments while our horticultural crop production unit has automated glasshouses with a computer controlled hydroponic system and innovative LED lighting. 

Demonstration Farm has a new automated milking dairy which provides training in the emerging areas of digitalisation, robotics and data-driven dairy management. It operates alongside our conventional dairy, offering a unique opportunity to compare both systems. 

Construction apprentices learn their craft alongside professional tradespeople in distinct trade areas using quality equipment and modern materials.
