Business & Community



Orkney College UHI is as committed to helping businesses as we are individuals. Our extensive range of short courses, modern apprenticeships and CPD modules allows you or your business to update skills and knowledge in line with current legislation or simply to update your CV.

We are very keen to work closely with local businesses and the community and believe that the learning experiences we offer need to grow and develop in line with developments taking place in Orkney and beyond.

There is support and training available for employers to increase opportunities for those with barriers to employment. Read more in our funding area.

Evening Classes are also offered by Orkney College UHI in conjunction with the OIC's Community Learning and Development service. There are a range of certificated and non-certificated courses to meet both training and leisure needs.

Throughout the academic year our Overblikk Restaurant and Coffee at the Blikk, both run by student groups, are open to the public and we welcome the support from the local community for your valued custom.

As well as offering a wide range of learning opportunities, Orkney College has a variety of business services on offer including room hire, equipment hire and video conferencing.
