Rinova Consortium

< Return to Partnerships

RC iconThe Rinova Consortium is a unique pan-London network of training , enterprise and employment providers, working together to create new learning and economic opportunities for people of all ages. We do this through long-standing and effective partnerships, jointly design and deliver programmes, quality assurance, seconding staff and associates to ensure complementary expertise in delivery and using each other's facilities.  Together we implement creative and imaginative provision in sectors such as the arts, creative industries, sport, health and well-being, leisure, tourism, hospitality and education to engage and inspire people to access skills and learning, enter the labour market, progress within it, or return to work and self-employment.

We have extensive reach within these growing job sectors, through the work that we do with our consortium partners and their employer networks, providing access to young people 'NEET' (not in employment, education or training) to traineeships and apprenticeships, and to people of all ages and backgrounds to access business start-up, local and international skills training and job opportunities.
