All of the study programmes at HRC feature work experience opportunities and enterprise projects. The College has established links with local employers and works with them to ensure learners leave College with the right skills and experience.
And the strong relationship between the College and local business also means that HRC is well placed as a provider of Apprenticeships with a range of companies across the region.
Apprenticeships are an increasingly popular route as they combine paid jobs with paid training and an average of 25 people per month secure Apprenticeships through HRC.
