  2. Breadth, depth and scale
    Tap into a multidisciplinary team of training professionals. From HR and employment law, management and leadership development, to lean manufacturing, health, safety, environment and engineering skills, we have a comprehensive range of expertise. We avoid the siloed approach of other training providers and make it easier for you to gain consistency of provision. And, you’ll have all your needs taken care of in one place. Because many of our courses are accredited by bodies such as IOSH, NEBOSH, IEMA, IOA, Oxford Brookes University, CMI and ILM, you can benefit from nationally recognised standards.
  3. Availability and flexibility
    With national and international reach, you can choose to attend one of our nationwide training centres or ask us to deliver any of our courses at your own premises, at a time to suit you best. Woodland Grange, our residential training centre, and our multi-million pound Technology Training centre, which replicates a real real-life manufacturing environment, are amongst our state of the art facilities. 
  4. Solutions for your business
