Our Story

Shaping a world where everyone is empowered to be their professional best

We are a team of thinkers, mentors and educators making a real-world impact

In 2016 the Government recognised a growing skills gap in the United Kingdom. We were falling behind the rest of world in three development areas; soft skills, data skills and tech skills. To support businesses in upskilling their workforce the Government introduced the Apprenticeship Levy. While the creation of the levy was essential for funding development programmes, there remained a missing piece.  

How do you use the levy for strategic impact?  

How do you know which programmes are right for your business? 

Enter Corndel. We turn knowledge into performance.
