The Colleges' Partnership is a not for profit joint venture company owned by Wiltshire College and Somerset College. It was born out of the well-established working relationship between the two institutions. The two colleges have worked together in partnership since 1998 to deliver education and training solutions to the military.
Today, there are approximately 2,500 soldiers enrolled on Apprenticeship schemes with the Partnership and 87 staff delivering these programmes throughout the UK and Europe. These schemes are funded through a national contract between the Army and the Learning and Skills Council, with The Colleges' Partnership being contracted as deliverer.
