Work with employers to provide comprehensive and tailor made training solutions to up-skill workforces, in turn, increasing productivity and profitability providing  companies with a competitive edge over their rivals.

Regulatory Bodies....
We go through a rigorous assessment procedure for our staff and courses to ensure you receive the best training possible. We are regulated and inspected by Edexcel, 1st4sport, City & Guilds, the British Horse Society, Ofsted and our partners. 

Most of our staff are External Verifiers, Examiners and Moderators. This means that they go out and inspect other training providers, schools and colleges to ensure that they are delivering an excellent standard of delivery and assessment. Therefore, you can be sure that our quality standards are superlative.

Our employers and learners also agree, and in July 2012 we were nominated us for a Chase Business Award. With fierce competition from over 90 other companies, we were delighted and honoured to bring home an award for 'People Development'.


Our reputation......
 Our recent inspections and External Verification reports have branded us:

"first class"

"very supportive" 

"excellent performance and practice"

"100% success rate"

For our work in the Equine industry and commitment to Horse Welfare,  we are endorsed and supported by top International eventer Oliver Townend and 'Intelligent Horsemanship' owner and Monty Roberts UK partner

We are also pleased to be supported by ITV's The Apprentice star and successful business woman Ruth Badger and the international actor Antony Head (most recently starred in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, BBC's Merlin, the film The Iron Lady).

In most cases our programs are funded by the government, and so our training is
