Are you sick & tired of your current training organisation giving you sub-standard service?
Would you like to have or see a change of attitude towards your training requirements?
Why would you NOT think about putting your valued employees through a traineeship?




Traineeships are a Government Funded initiative providing an avenue for employers to train both their new & existing staff to achieve accredited qualifications utilising Government assisted funding.

Training is delivered fully or partially on the job & depending on the qualification can take between 6 months & 2 years to complete.
Down to Earth work in collaboration with the organisation & the trainee to deliver the training in an environment which promotes active learning with minimal impact to ensure it is ‘business as usual’ or as close to it as possible.
