For the 2016/17 academic year the Service has commissioned the following partners:

  • Coralesce – Providing a range of face to face and online learning courses specialising in digital technologies and enterprise skills.
  • Isle of Wight College – courses delivered include ESOL (English Speaking for Other Languages).
