We have offices in the Midlands, London and Glasgow as well as a number of training facilities based across the UK.

…delivering a wide range of services…
We are unique in the depth and breadth of our course portfolio and can offer training in the fields of first aid, health and safety, fire safety, food hygiene, social care, and specialist professional development topics for all industry sectors.
Our training solutions are tailored to meet client needs, with bespoke courses developed by our dedicated Curriculum Team and delivered via tutor-led learning, distance learning, e-learning, or interactive webinar sessions.
…to thousands of satisfied customers…
We work with thousands of organisations from across the UK, spanning the public and private sector and all industry types, and know how to meet and exceed diverse needs and expectations.
Our client base includes UK police forces, local authorities, NHS trusts and health authorities, schools, colleges and universities, national care providers, professional and regulatory bodies, international hospitality chains, major retailers and construction firms.
Many of our customers have been with us for several years and 99% of businesses who train with us would use us again and recommend us to others.
…with a focus on quality and added value…
We attribute our growth and success since our foundation in 1997 to our commitment to quality. Clients come to us, and consistently stay with us, because of our robust quality management systems. Every client receives dedicated personal account management and our advisors use a collaborative approach to determine the best solution for each organisation and the people within it.
Our training courses are designed and rigorously reviewed by our Curriculum Team for total quality assurance. This ensures we stay at the forefront of changes to legislation and standards as well as maintaining expert sector knowledge.
Training quality is further underlined through our links with recognised industry associations, including the Association of First Aiders (AoFA) and the National Association for Safety and Health in Care Services (NASHiCS) and our approved centre status with prestigious, national awarding bodies including Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC) and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
…but all with a corporate conscience.
We take our duties to our people, our local community and our environment very seriously. That’s why we hold an Investors in People Gold Award and are an accredited Living Wage Employer.
We have implemented a number of measures to reduce our impact on the environment and significantly offset our carbon footprint, ensuring sustainable and responsible service delivery. We also support our charitable division, the Eden Foundation, to promote local entrepreneurialism among individuals from non-privileged backgrounds.
