Bridge Training Ltd – ‘Virtually’ Open for Business

Bridge Training Ltd, recently awarded a ‘Good’ in their Ofsted inspection, have launched a virtual tour of their two sites so that learners can take a peek inside the centre before enrolling.
The independent learning provider based over two sites in Gloucester is planning to open in the next few weeks in line with guidance from the Government on social distancing but, for now, it has thrown open its doors – in an online video only.
The video tour is now available here and takes in the professional standard hair studio and various other classrooms at Archdeacon Street as well as the purpose-built car maintenance site and construction centre on Catherine Street just a short walk away.
As well as providing students with the opportunity to assess the venues before making their decision to sign up for one of the courses on offer, the video will also be used as a way of reducing the anxiety suffered by many learners at the prospect of entering a new building. Supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of its students is a high priority for Bridge Training.
Bridge Training Ltd was commended by Ofsted inspectors for its ‘nurturing educational environment’ for 14 to 19 year olds.
While many of the students who consider attending Bridge Training have not engaged well with ‘mainstream’ schooling, there are many learners who choose the centre because their life circumstances have meant they have had to face many challenges en route to their chosen careers.
Mark Harrod, Managing Director of Bridge Training Ltd, said: “Our learners could be 14 to 16 year olds who are home educated or who are in an alternative provider unit or they could be young people between 16 and 19 who found school or college was just not suited to their needs. We aim to learn the most about each one so we can encourage them to feel safe and comfortable at Bridge, we then work on their aspirations and lead them to achievement.”
The virtual tour is one more way in which Bridge Training aims to encourage potential students to feel positive about their move to the centre.
Bridge Training offers courses in: Photography and Digital Media, Art and Design, Hair, Beauty, Care Work, Mechanics and Construction as well as Maths and English.
