Why Use Us?


To create our unique training service, we looked at the existing corporate training market and identified gaps that we could fill. The Four areas we decided to focus on are:

  1. Creating a bespoke training service

Our team starts every job with a thorough Training Needs Analysis that reviews the company and identifies the training needs of each member of your team. This assessment enables us to provide a bespoke mix of off-the-shelf and tailored training packages.

  1. Supporting the Learner Journey

We believe that training should not be the complete process, as staff members should be able to enjoy further development and job progression opportunities, We will support these individuals through this process – we call the this “The Learner Journey”.

3. Offering affordable training

Thanks to our in-house team of trainers and fully equipped training rooms we can offer competitive rates and a wide range of qualifications at various levels. A thorough assessment will be carried out to identify the ways in which we can help you, and we guarantee a competitively priced training programme.

4. The Best Trainers and Assessors

We only use the best Trainers and Assessors – A bold statement but true! Our staff are handpicked and well established within their respective industries. We have Former Military and Senior Police Officers, Ex Fire Fighters, Qualified Medics, Football Stadium Safety Officers and Close Protection Operators.  A credible Trainer is what makes a credible qualification!
