The Learning Enterprise becomes Society for Education and Training Corporate Partner

Teachers, trainers and assessors at The Learning Enterprise, Virgin Care’s training and development arm, are being welcomed as members of the Society for Education and Training (SET) thanks to a new Corporate Partnership. The partnership marks an exciting collaboration between the organisations, offering a valuable range of professional development opportunities for college staff.
