Inspiring Business by Sharing Success



Digital training provider, Althaus, is the latest exciting new business to set up home at Connect Derby’s Sadler Bridge Studios.

The company, which was founded earlier this year, is an alternative training provider which offers digital and IT apprenticeships to employers across Derbyshire.


It provides learners with high quality training, use of modern facilities and tailored teaching plans, and supports them to develop the cutting-edge technical proficiency and leadership skills they need to make a real impact in the workplace.


Althaus has a unique approach – it combines self-directed learning with social and collaborative environments, with a combination of webinars, face-to-face classroom sessions and on-demand content, supported by one-to-one mentoring and insights from leading industry experts.


The Althaus team also sources the best talent for employers and provides businesses with skilled and talented individuals who will generate real, measurable value.


Courses are currently available in digital marketing, IT solutions, software development and cyber security.


In January, Sadler Bridge Studios and Friar Gate Studios were given the green light to let up 30% of their space to tenants from across the creative industries supply chain in order to further promote entrepreneurship within Derby.


Eligible businesses include professional services firms such as accountants, lawyers, financial services and HR professionals, along with education and training companies.


Commenting on the move to Sadler Bridge Studios, CEO, Pete Buller said:


“We’re delighted to have chosen Sadler Bridge Studios as the home for our new business. The central location is perfect for us and the facilities are excellent, especially the meeting rooms and the super-fast broadband.


“Althaus’ mission is to empower the digital leaders of tomorrow by ensuring that both learners and employers have the skills and resources they need to thrive.


“Our learners gain access to high quality training, cutting-edge facilities and tailored teaching plans, whilst our partner organisations benefit from skilled, talented individuals who are able to generate real, measurable value.


“Over the past couple of months, we’ve been talking to business leaders to discuss their needs and have shaped our products to enable employers to deal with the challenges of the current economic climate.”


Ann Bhatti, head of Connect Derby, said:


“I’d like to welcome Pete and the team to Sadler Bridge Studios. They are joining a thriving business community that combines traditional creatives with other businesses in creative industries supply chain.


“Althaus is an exciting new business and I look forward to seeing the company grow and develop at Connect Derby.”


Sadler Bridge Studios is one of the seven diverse managed workspaces in the Connect Derby portfolio alongside Friar Gate Studios, Kings Chambers, Marble Hall, Shot Tower, Riverside Chambers and the iHub innovation centre on Infinity Park.


The scheme provides micro businesses, entrepreneurs and SMEs with the high specification working environment, IT infrastructure and business support they need to grow and develop.
