Thriving learning communities

We offer multiple opportunities for learners to connect and collaborate  – both via our apprenticeships and through our enrichment programme called Community Connector.

Community Connector’s mission is to give learners the tools and skills they need to thrive personally and professionally. Whilst on programme, all learners can access all Community Connector content and sign up for 90-minute enrichment sessions. The sessions are an opportunity to link with peers from an array of organisations, meet all of Bauer Academy’s tutors, and attend Q&A sessions with industry professionals.
