For these organisations we have run a huge range of courses in the UK and overseas and are always happy to create bespoke packages to address specific training needs.

Our service though goes beyond producing a quotation and we are always keen to discuss in depth with a commercial user and advise them on a consultancy basis (not chargeable) what courses best suit their needs – even if this means advising them to seek an alternative provider.
