2020 Enrolment is now closed. We hope to see you in 2021!

We regret to inform you that due to a rise in COVID cases around the UK we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel all scheduled classes at The Jewellers Academy Training Center for 2020. The decision came with the health and safety of students, instructors, and staff in mind. We know how important education is to help one upskill thus providing better career prospects so we will be looking into increasing free content to provide you the best information possible until classes can resume. We will also seek out new opportunities to connect with you and provide greater value to your work at your bench. A difficult point in making our decision was knowing you may have already made arrangements with your employers or staff so you could attend your designated course, and we apologize for the inconvenience that this will cause. Please note that when we re-launch early 2021 the 66 registered names we have on our books will receive a 30 % discount on tuition fees for all long and short courses for the first six months. 

We will be launching our Tools and Equipment distribution business in the coming months , with the latest Laser welding/cutting , micro-welders, Engraving , Jewellery tools , gemmology  equipment etc from the leading global brands all under one roof in an active workshop so one may experience each piece of equipment ‘hands on’ .  Appointments only, Finance for workshop upgrades will be made available. Lastly, we wish you all the best as we all navigate these unprecedented times and remain ready to help you in any way that we can. We value our relationship with each Trainee and client and hope that once this is all over you will consider signing up again to The Jewellers Academy Training Center. Please contact us with any questions or concerns. Stay healthy and safe. 

Kindest Regards  
Derek Boyd

"Europe's leading laser welder and engraving company Orotig has officially signed up to The Jewellers Academy.

Orotig are global leaders in the laser technology industry and fully support and believe in The Jewellers Academy’s unique training style and structure. They are eager to play a major role joining some of the best global brands in the business that are already partnered with The Jewellers Academy.

Derek Boyd founder of The Academy says “ I’m lost for words Silvano, National Sales Director and President of Orotig, Mr. Alberto Gagliano, kindly gave me the time to explain The Academy’s strategy for which I thank them graciously. After negotiations The Academy is fully endorsed by Orotig. Not only will an array of the latest laser machines be available for trainees to learn on but The Academy will become sole distributor for the UK and Ireland.

The Bridlington based Academy will become a service centre encompassing a quality and first class support to our service users as well as the capabilities of creating employment in the local area.

We undoubtedly retain the best names in the industry and in order to maintain this credibility we have decided to now close the door to other brands signing up as we have been inundated with interest.
The untimely arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic has delayed our launch of the training centre. The government guidelines around social distancing has strongly influenced our decision to proceed with phase 2 of the business model earlier than anticipated.
The Distribution Centre is set to revolutionize the “Try before you buy” concept.
Exciting times are ahead.
Welcome on board Orotig- we are thrilled to have you."
