We expect West Cumbria to see growth across the sector, with many new businesses and increased opportunity for a variety of roles. For the entry-level office administration jobs, salaries start at around £13,000. But with a range of specialisms to branch out into, your evolution knows no limit.

Business Analysts earn around £45,000 and experienced IT managers can expect £75,000 or more – remember every multi-million pound business began its life as a fledgling start-up.



If you join one of our Business courses, you’ll be taught by experienced lecturers who have worked in the industry. We offer a wide range of courses to suit all abilities.

“I have learned a variety of skills since starting my course including project management and business behaviour. Ideally I would like a career as a PA, I feel confident that this is the first step to help me achieve this dream.”
