New partnership is launched to train city’s workforce and help the region grow
Businesses in and around Peterborough are being encouraged to “Think Peterborough” with the launch of a new education partnership in the city.
Think Peterborough is a collaboration between Anglia Ruskin University, University Centre Peterborough and Peterborough Regional College to provide a range of accredited staff development courses.
Offering qualifications ranging from NVQs through to Masters Degrees, Think Peterborough can equip local businesses – and their employees – with the skills to prosper.
Think Peterborough’s courses have been designed to meet the requirements of a variety of organisations operating across the private, public and third sectors. Each can be delivered online, face-to-face, on campus in Peterborough or in the workplace.
Spanning Peterborough and the surrounding region – including Huntingdon, Fenland and Stamford – the Think Peterborough partnership is dedicated to helping the region meet its aspirations by providing top-quality education for business.
