Gateshead Skills Academy
We are based in the state-of-the-art, muliti-million pound Skills Academy on the Team Valley, Gateshead.
The Skills Academy was part funded through ONE and was the result of collaboration with Gateshead College and a number of local training providers.
Our Partners and Sub Contractors
We work in partnership with other providers to develop a broad and responsive offer to customers. Where providers are unable to secure contracts to fund training delivery in their own right, we will consider supporting them through a sub-contract arrangement. We aim to be partners of choice™ and look to work with providers who have similar values and principles, and who are committed to excellent customer service and continuous improvement.
