Talland  offers top class training on a range of career qualifications through our BHS courses, from Stage One to Fellowship level including your UKCC level 2.

The BHS examinations system is one of the best and most widely respected in the world. The progressive route encourages you to continue, learning from beginner level to world-class qualifications. 

The advice, guidelines and syllabus for every level mean that you can be sure of what you'll be asked to do and also be sure you're making the right choice in taking your exams with us. Once you're qualified, you can also attend professional development events to push your skills even further.

BHS qualifications may also be used as UCAS tarriff points that can help you gain entry to University. For more information go to the EQL website.

If you can't find an option that suits you, call our team at Talland and we will find the right programme for your needs.
