Specifically established to meet the needs of employers in Greater Manchester and across the North West, Churchgate Academy specialises in delivering high quality training solutions for business. Our state of the art training facility in the centre of Manchester ensures that you and your staff will do more than just attend a training course – you will have a total learning experience.

The Academy is a service of the Chamber of Commerce and Manchester Solutions Group and is part of our strategy to do all we can to help businesses to grow and succeed. It is the place to access a full range of business and professional courses to meet your every need – everything from programmes to help you start up and grow your business through to accredited programmes to make sure your employees are fully qualified and have the up to date knowledge and skills they need to ensure your organisation not only survives but thrives.

What makes the Academy distinctive?

  • All our courses are designed by tutors with real business experience and many of our programmes feature ‘master classes’ by industry experts – so you can be sure that your training is up-to-date and relevant to the workplace
  • Our training rooms feature the very latest learning technology so that you really do make the most of your learning experience
  • Everyone who attends an Academy course will get an account on our own e-learning platform (So-LVE) which means you can access course programmes and course notes after you have attended your course. You will be able to chat to other delegates between sessions or correspond with your tutor so that your learning is not limited to the time you are in our centre!
