Hello, and welcome to Catten College!
The Catten College mission statement to you is that… “You are the driving force behind the College and we will ensure that we guide and help you to achieve your goals, no matter who you are, where you come from, your personal circumstances or beliefs.” This handbook is part of your induction pack and will help you from the start of your learning programme. This handbook will be used throughout your learning and will be used in conjunction with your induction and training within your work placement. Who we are… Established in 1983, we are a well respected training provider offering Apprenticeships and Advanced Apprenticeships in Care, Hairdressing and Retail. As well as our main learning centre in Colchester, we also have an annexe in Clacton dedicated to the Hairdressing programme. We currently work with Apprentices from within a 25 mile/40 kilometre radius of Colchester, taking in Chelmsford, Clacton, Frinton, Halstead, Harwich, Maldon, Sudbury, Tiptree and Walton, as well as points between. Alongside offering Apprenticeships, we also work with a number of schools in the Colchester and Tendring areas, offering training in Care, Hairdressing, Retail and Sport to pupils from years 10 and 11; and a large number of adult learners taking awards in Care, Hairdressing, I.T. or Retail. What are our aims? To help you gain a qualification and a full time job. We will train and guide you through your learning until you have achieved your apprenticeship and gained your qualification. When you have gained your qualification it will be with you for life and will not only help you grow at this point in time but will also help you in the future. While you are learning with us, we will guide and train you in those necessary skills that make you a valuable asset to your employer and any company in the future. Added to that, you will have gained an accredited qualification from a national and respected awarding body that will be recognised in any professional industry
