What's it all about?

Are you one of the growing army of professional cleaners? Now’s your chance to make sure you have the cleaning qualification to match, with the City & Guilds Diploma in Cleaning and Support Services at City College Plymouth. This is your opportunity to show what you can do with your existing experience and skills and receive a nationally-recognised accreditation for it. You may even use it to branch out to other areas, possibly setting up in business yourself.
