A bit about us
We are RoATP approved.*
We employ staff which consist of a strong and efficient admin team, management, sales and fully qualified assessors and tutors who are equipped to handle functional skills, full-framework Apprenticeships and additional learner support such as SEN/Dyslexia if required.
We have been awarded our own prime contract status. This allows us to partner directly with the SFA and receives funding to deliver more apprenticeships as a Prime contract holder.
We have Apprenticeship learners on courses with us nationwide and currently deal with around 200 employers on both levy and non levy contracts.
We have direct claim status for all the qualifications we have been audited on due to the high standard of work we have produced. This means exam boards trust us to deliver qualifications in their name.
Our learners can choose how they want to learn and a lot of their work can be done online, saving time and meaning learners can work at a time to suit them.
As a private training provider, we make things happen, we change things as and when we need to and can adapt quickly and effectively to the needs of the learner and employers. We don't have issues with bureaucracy and red tape. We make the decisions which means you won't be waiting for an answer for weeks or sticking to a set-in-stone programme. As long as we have your support we can tailor our training to you as a company.
