Our staff are our greatest asset – but insufficient training and support can be a real issue.

Welcome to our Educational Consultancy Service

Our service covers everything from where to begin with starting your own training company, to staffing, quality assurance, and more. You don’t need to be an existing customer of ours or tie your company into a length contract; our service is there for when you need it.

Step One

Make sure you have the appropriately trained staff. You will need at least one Assessor and one Lead IQA

Step Two

Book your Initial Consultation to guide you on your next steps to start your training provider

Step Three

Use our pay-as-you-go consultancy service to assist you with what you need, when you need it, no fuss

Step One

Are your staff appropriately trained?

If you’re thinking about starting your own accredited training provider, your team will need at least one fully qualified Lead Internal Quality Assurer, and one fully qualified Assessor. These must be separate entities, though you as the business owner can be one of them. If both parties also hold a Tutor training qualification, that is beneficial.

Both Internal Quality Assurer and Assessor will need to have occupational competence in the area you intend your training company to be delivering qualifications.

Book your Initial Consultation

Your Initial Consultation is your opportunity to have a 30 minute discussion over the phone with our industry expert, who has extensive experience in:

Setting up accredited training providers with a range of awarding organisations;
Creating bespoke courses unique to your training provider;
Developing the policies, procedures, resources and systems required to setup and manage an accredited training provider;
Completing application procedures for the 'Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers'.

During this discussion, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Our consultant will then be able to provide you with some clarity on the steps you will need to take in order to achieve your goal.


Step Three

Once you have had your Initial Consultation, our Consultant will be able to offer support in the form of advice and guidance, or a more hands-on approach with specific targeted interventions, staff training, or workshops.

Our simple pay-as-you-go pricing structure means you only pay for our help and advice when you actually need it. All of our work is covered by a Non-Disclosure agreement, so you can be assured of the strictest commercial confidence.

We can charge on a day rate basis for issues that require ongoing support, or alternatively a fixed price for a particular intervention or piece of work.
