Who are VSS?

Experts in delivering Government funded apprenticeships and workforce upskilling programmes, we’ve been helping our clients and learners prosper for years.

With our head office located in Bury and a team of highly qualified and skilled trainers, assessors and tutors located across the UK, we are able to support our clients and learners anywhere, at any time to the exact specification, therefore affording national support to our clients and learners alike.

Working with unemployed learners through to large corporates, our back to work short courses aim to improve the skills of the unemployed, whilst our work-based apprenticeship and upskilling programmes aim to improve the skills of employees and optimise the capability of businesses.

Whether you are looking to take on new staff under an apprenticeship programme, or whether you want to create a culture of employer investment and employee empowerment by upskilling your current workforce, VSS are here to support you through every step of your business goals.

Our custom approach to training and development starts with your goals. By collaborating with you, we develop creative training and development programmes that reflect your brand and culture, and works with your existing processes and policies. The outcome is bespoke training that engages learners, is easy to manage, and delivers breakthrough results.

Our Ethos

We are extremely proud of the education and support we provide to our learners and employers.

We celebrate equality and diversity amongst all our learners and staff and seek to nurture the gifts of each individual through high quality teaching and learning and dedicated pastoral care. Employers, learners and potential learners receive clear, accurate, up to date, accessible, objective and impartial information before committing to our services.

Our priority is to provide the best possible education for our learners, ensuring that each individual is given the support and encouragement they need to achieve their ambitions and goals.

Our values reflect the importance that we place on a caring and supportive environment. We believe in developing a culture based on work ethic, discipline, honesty and humility. As an organisation we expect the highest standards of work, behaviour and commitment from our learners and staff.
