Opportunities Workshop exists from our passion and belief that everyone deserves a successful career.
Since 2012 we've worked with a large number of individuals and businesses to grow talent pools in our communities.
As we emerge from the pandemic, our focus is on navigating the changing world of work.
Our mission remains stronger than ever,
To help individuals and businesses get the skills they need for a successful future.
Opportunities Workshop is home to a range of brands that reflect the diversity of our service provision and customer groups.
Since 2018, Opportunities Workshop has been home to Pitman Training in Essex with the acquisition of the Chelmsford and Colchester territories.
We have invested in new learning centres in both locations to provide high quality face-to-face learning and assessment facilities.
Pitman Training is home to our range of digital skills programmes.
Our children are expected to grow up and fill our shoes, and whatever comes along we appreciate the need for education to continue.
We established tutori in response to the interruption to mainstream education experienced by our children during 2020, providing individual and small group tutoring across all school age groups.
In 2014 we established Opportunities Included CIC to provide access for adults and young people outside the labour market who need the skills to
identify and achieve their career objectives.
Opportunities Included has specialist skills supporting neurodiverse people to fulfil their career potential.
Opportunities Included is currently working with Essex County Council to create job opportuntities for young adults with neurodiverse conditions.
Opportunities Included is also home to our Scholarship Fund which supports wider participation in our vocational training programmes.
