Why choose ProCo for Study Programmes in Orrell?

Unlike some training providers, we do not expect all of our learners to progress at the same pace, and our Orrell Study Programmes are tailored to the needs of individual local learners, and to fill in any gaps where the local mainstream education may have let you down. There’s no judgement or blame if your exam results were not what you hoped for – we will use them as a starting point to identify areas where you might benefit from extra support, but once you start studying with ProCo, we will make sure your tutoring is tailored to your changing needs as you progress.
