Meet the Team

Pauline Hands

Director of Marketing, Business Engagement & Apprenticeships

Our dedicated Business Engagement and Apprenticeships team has a proven track record in developing effective partnerships with employers. The team provides a single point of contact for businesses, helping to identify training needs and accessing available government funding - all of which ensures that the training we provide is not only of the highest quality but enables you to maximise your training budgets, whether for Apprenticeships, nationally recognised qualifications or bespoke training packages.

Experts in Apprenticeships and accessing government funding, our team will listen to what you want whilst understanding your organisation and the challenges it faces. They will then create a training programme to meet your objectives and deliver it at a time and place that suits you.

Business Engagement Team

The team works with businesses looking to engage with the College. They are your one-stop-shop for training, Apprenticeships, work experience and events, and work closely with employers to build mutually beneficial, lasting partnerships.

Our Business Engagement Officers provide free business needs analysis that will identify training solutions and potential funding options, supporting you throughout the process.

The team also hosts a number of events in order to gain feedback from employers on skill gaps within their sectors.

Apprenticeships Team

For businesses who employ a City College Plymouth apprentice, the Apprenticeship team is here to support you, and your apprentice, through the journey.

Via regular communication the team will act as a liaison between you, the apprentice and the College delivery team to ensure successful completion of the Apprenticeship by providing pastoral support to the apprentices and working with employers if there are any concerns or challenges.
