For Business

On your marks, get set - grow!

B&FC for Business provides organisations with a huge range of training opportunities - from short courses to apprenticeships.

To make sure our courses are what you need to succeed, we co-create them with businesses.

We've been helping businesses to grow for more than 130 years. In that time we've learned how training can transform organisations.

We don't expect businesses to know exactly the training they need. That's why most of our conversations begin with a short needs analysis session. Because sustainable success is always built on solid foundations.

We can work with you to identify your specific workforce requirements and provide a solution which fits your needs – no matter what level of training is required.

B&FC offers a full-service package to help align training and development with company objectives. 

We currently work with more than 1,800 partner employers locally, regionally and nationally.

FREE training needs analysis session

If you've got business objectives but need a hand achieving them, B&FC is here to help.

We'll listen to your plans and provide you with a strategy on upskilling your team for sustainable success.

Drop us a line and we'll be in touch to arrange a date and time to suit you.

Find out how your business could benefit from a free training needs analysis session.
