About The Focus Training Group


The Focus Training Group was formed in 2011 when Devon and Cornwall Electrical Training (DCET) and Focus Training (SW) Limited joined forces.


Starting with three centres in Redruth, Plymouth and Exeter, it has since opened new centres in Newton Abbot and Bristol, expanded the Redruth centre and moved to a new purpose-built facility in Plymouth.


More than one hundred apprentices enrol each year and the group supports a range of employers from one-man-bands to national companies.


Curriculum Director Bernard Collins said: “Our recipe is simple yet proven; apprentice groups usually attend on a day-release basis, are taught by a dedicated trainer and to assist with the collation of their site portfolio every apprentice is supported by a dedicated assessor.


“Most importantly all of our trainers and assessors have a strong industry background, we are especially proud of the fact that six of our team completed their apprenticeship training with us and after spending time in industry have returned to help new entrants to the industry.


“We were one of the first providers to deliver the Trailblazer standard and our success rate for standards is way above the national average.


“The Focus Training Group are in the enviable position of being able to rapidly adapt to the current lockdown situation resulting in an almost seamless experience for our existing electrical apprentices, who are now effectively enjoying the quality training expected from a respected provider utilising a variety of online media.”
