Co-owner Gemma, who also started the Bradley Lowery Foundation in honor of Bradley, who died at the age of seven after a courageous battle with neuroblastoma cancer, said: “It’s really important for young people or people wishing to change careers to have opportunities like this.

“Nowadays there is a lot of competition to find jobs and with this industry it is very promising so it is essential that people have the chance to learn more.

“We pride ourselves not only on being a place where people can come to learn, but where learners can build self-confidence, improve their mental health and meet friends while achieving a recognized qualification. “

The academy will also help interns build their confidence in finding employment and offer CV writing training.
