Why Bridge Training?

Since being established in 1989, Bridge Training™ has worked with the belief that with the right teaching, and the right environment, anyone can be supported to flourish and reach their potential; that anybody regardless of background or past experience can achieve success.

We have been committed to delivering the highest quality education to those students that may have found that mainstream education, school or college might not have been right for them.


Our Vision

We work as one of the top alternative education providers in Gloucestershire, bringing an ever-growing range of vocational training, as well as the fundamentals of maths and English, to a setting that is supportive, flexible and learner-centred.

Our team of specialised and experienced teachers, tutors and wellbeing mentors are all dedicated to creating a friendly, supportive, safe and inclusive environment to maximise each learners’ individual journey.

Our Learners

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
