Welcome to UK Training, and thank you for visiting! We are a Northampton-based training provider, offering vocational qualifications and training courses for both individuals and corporations. We’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit more about what we do, and the ways in which we can help you.
UK Training was set up when we identified a need for an accessible, local training provider that was able to deliver accredited compliance training and vocational qualifications to both individual employees, and larger workforce teams.
As businesses and employers today increasingly understand the value of offering formal training and qualifications to their workforces and acknowledge the importance of investing in the professional development of their staff, the demand for vocational training and the qualifications that accompany it has risen exponentially.
Today, many industries including food service and hospitality require staff to be trained and certified in order to be permitted to work within certain roles, as well as recognising the direct value of investing in improving the skills of their staff.
However, many companies, and also individuals who wish to increase their skillset to make themselves more appealing to employers often have difficulty finding an accredited training provider that offers a comprehensive, fully inclusive service comprising of the necessary skill training and formal certifications that they need in order to progress.
UK Training bridges the gap between the demands and desires of corporations and individuals to upskill and attain workplace qualifications, and the previous lack of availability of training and certification in vocational skills that are directly relevant to mandatory vocational qualifications, and additional work-based skills.
Today, we are a leading training provider in the Northamptonshire area for work-based vocational skills and qualifications
