With these training needs in mind, we created the world's first practical skills courses. When our maiden courses launched in 1985, we developed the essence training approach in a practical, hands-on way. Our trainers are world's top professionals. They bring practical insights rather theory-based training. They connect our students witht the nest and the brightest in their chosen industry o helpp them hit the ground running and land their dream job.
Fitzwilliam Institute has forged a successful track record in private education for 30 years and counting.
