"..... The interesting bit was that the training was excellent. As a Fellow of CIPD I am very rarely impressed by training on offer ... usually its lackluster and boring. The training run by this bunch was the best first aid training I have ever done. It was engaging and full of energy...."

Simon Carter, Assistant Director Marketing and Communications , The Scout Association

"... I enjoyed the course, in particular the willingness of Good Skills Training to accomodate my needs ........ I couldn't have asked for more in terms of what I received ... "

"This is a reference for Good Skills Training Ltd from Barworks ltd.  After many years of searching about and using various companies to do our health and safety, first aid, fire safety and food safety training and advising we discovered Good Skills Training Ltd.  

If they don’t offer a standard course that covers the particular area we need training and advice in I know I can rely on them to come up with a personalised course or advice.  They provide a comprehensive range of courses at all levels. I have found them to be a very helpful company. They are more than willing to come to our places of work and train our staff inset. They have even provided course exams in foreign languages for us.

They are quick reliable and very competitive on price. I know that I can rely on my staff being trained to an excellent standard and my company being covered."

Anselm Chatwin, Operations Manager, Barworks ltd, Good life Ltd.


"Good Skills Training has carried out a large number of our Fire Risk Assessments for last year and we found them to be very accommodating with their approach for arrangements and access to properties.  The reports were very clear and gave clear action plans for when works should be completed by.   The team really worked well for us. Many thanks."

Pat O'Keeffe, Service Improvement Manager, Providence Row Housing Association and Kipper Project, October 2011

Since the beginning of this year Good Skills Training have been providing first aid training for groups of foster carers working for Herts County Council. The training has been put on each month for a group of about twelve carers each time.

We have found that our communication with the organisation has always been positive. The trainers have been reliable and we have received certificates for each participant together with a booklet promptly after each course.

In all about one hundred carers and ten members of staff have completed the training and the feedback from all has been very positive. It would appear that the material covered is exactly what the carers need in looking after children. It is delivered in an accessible way and meets our needs appropriately.

Josie Elkin, Manager, West  Fostering Team, Provided in December 2009, we have continued to run these courses for Hertfordshire Family Placement Service.

Dear Ian & Ruth,

I just wanted to thank you for an excellent first aid course last week. All of my staff said they
thoroughly enjoyed the course and felt really confident afterwards. As you know some of us
were re-qualifying and we felt that Ruth’s method of training was much more effective than
some of the courses we had attended previously.

Tumble Tots has unique requirements in this area; we need to meet our legal requirements for
an appointed person but we also need to know how to deal with child incidents. To achieve this
via most publically available courses would mean at least two courses and several days of
training, much of which is overkill for us (we do not need to meet the full Ofsted requirements for first aid!).
Your tailored course was perfect for our needs and as three franchisees combined to send staff
it was really cost effective as well.

We look forward to seeing you in three years for a refresher!

Thanks again
Phyllis Davies
