Somerset Education & Training

Somerset gets a glowing report for its educational and training facilities, providing the opportunities for you, your staff and your business to grow.

Pre-school facilities in even the smallest of communities ensure youngsters get the best start possible, while allowing parents to pursue careers. Specialist nursery facilities are strategically located at several business parks, including Blackbrook, Taunton, Marston Trading Estate, Frome and Bancombe Road, Somerton.

Somerset offers a wide range of educational choice, from outstanding state schools to world famous private schools, including Millfield School with sporting excellence and Wells Cathedral School being outstanding in music and performing arts.

Somerset students have access to six top universities at Plymouth, Exeter, Bournemouth, Bristol, UWE and Bath Spa all working closely with Somerset’s further education establishments, including Bridgwater College, Richard Huish, Somerset College of Arts & Technology, Strode College, and Yeovil College.

These, in turn, have developed close working relationships with secondary schools, helping students to map out their personal and professional growth in Somerset while achieving great GCSE results.

Somerset’s workforce is not only well educated, but well trained, with around 90% of 17-18yr olds achieving advanced vocational qualifications in 2005, around one in five employees reaching NVQ Level 4 or above and nine out of ten employers claiming to offer staff training, according to a Learning and Skills Council study.
