Learning, Development & Apprenticeships
Learning at the Nishkam Centre
Here at the Nishkam Centre, we offer a variety of different educational and training courses that are easily accessible to people of different levels. Our small class sizes help the teacher build robust relationships with a strong sense of trust. This allows the student to feel comfortable and builds confidence to ask questions and participate to get the most out of their classes.
We hope to offer programs in a progressive manner, allowing students to advance seamlessly through the range of levels from foundation to advanced. We aim to make this transition as easy as possible and fully support our students in progressing forward and being confident in their abilities
Our apprenticeship programme is designed to provide values led qualifications all the way up to the degree level.
The Nishkam Apprenticeship programme delivers values-led qualifications ranging from GCSE to degree level. We do this to support organisations & students to thrive by co-designing programmes to meet current and future needs that will uplift individuals, communities and organisations.
We hope by providing education, training and apprenticeships we can unlock the potential of individuals to help them secure well-paying and fulfilling jobs that in turn will help them make a positive contribution to society.
