Our Values

Our values are about respect and performance. They are driven by a genuine desire to improve the quality of life for the individuals in the communities where we work.

We will always treat everyone with respect, without any prejudice or preconceptions, and we pride ourselves on being honest, open and fair.

Our commitment to equality and diversity means that all groups we work with receive the additional support and flexibility they require in order to succeed in the workplace.

"Senior leaders, governors and staff promote a highly inclusive ethos where trainees and apprentices behave responsibly and learn in a culture of tolerance and respect for others." Ofsted, 2017

We value high performance - from our own people and the people we train and place in work. We employ high-quality staff and cultivate a 'can do' attitude that runs throughout our business. We are agile, entrepreneurial and passionate about what we do.

As national training providers working with the UK Government, Local Authorities, Local Enterprise Partnerships and many different partners and agencies as well as with companies of all sizes and from all sectors. We also value the relationships we develop in business and the new opportunities we can bring for our clients.

Our chief executive, Martin Dunford OBE, is a founder and Chairman of the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), and we are at the forefront of thinking and policy development in skills, education and employability.
