Here at Building Futures East, we are firmly committed to offering all of our learners the best possible opportunities, enabling them to make informed decisions about their future learning and career options.

Our course offer spans from level 1 up to level 3, enabling progression and providing scope for learners to expand their knowledge and experience.  Our team are here to guide and advise, with the core focus on individual need.  All of our courses are fully accredited by national awarding bodies such as NCFE, City & Guilds, EDI and EAL.

This year will see many exciting developments to our curriculum including:

  • New level 3 qualification options across a range of sector skills areas
  • Delivery of level 1 & 2 Enterprise qualifications.  These will encourage innovative thinking and offer a foundation for learners who perhaps aspire to running their own business or taking a role in local community group activities
  • New level 2 Business & Administration course
  • E-safety learning packages to compliment our IT learning activities
  • More specialised courses in end of life care and dementia awareness
  • The development of our Junior Environmental Programme by seeking external quality assurance for the delivery
  • Extend our external quality assurance to include the Junior Construction delivery intermediate level

In addition to this, we constantly seek out new opportunities to fund our work and offer exciting new skills training packages.  Therefore, it is certain that there will be further opportunities that will present themselves over the coming 12 months so make sure you look out for our website updates, Twitter feeds, newsletters and updated course information flyers throughout the year!
