Axiom Academy, launched last year by Axiom Housing Association, aims to help people secure employment and achieve their aspirations.
Dr Karen Prince, head of the academy, said: “In the past year we have had 260 enrolments, all of which have resulted in a professional qualification for learners and in some cases more than one for the same person.
“The academy helps people to improve their skills and job prospects by providing the necessary support and development opportunities.
“We know we can help even more in particular in the current economic climate which is why we are promoting what’s on offer.”
