Training Courses

We can deliver a very wide range of training courses, in a variety of ways. If you can’t find what you need below, chances are we will be able to help, so please contact training@skaltd.co.uk

TRAINING COURSES

Here at Stallard Kane we hold a variety of accreditations and have our own in house trainers to deliver our courses. However, to allow us to offer a wider range of courses, both in terms of content and geographical location, we also have a network of trusted training providers who we partner with. These partners are based throughout the UK, which allows us to offer a wider range of service to our clients.

We are able to deliver a wide variety of courses at a client’s premises, if there is a large volume of staff who require the same training, as long as they have suitable facilities for the training to take place. This is often the most cost-effective option and can be logistically easier when dealing with large numbers of staff who require the same course.

Due to the pandemic, many of these courses are also available to be delivered in a virtual classroom setting, meaning that you can still keep up to date with vital training, but in the safety of your own home or workplace.

We also offer many of these courses as open courses, indicated by the OC icon in the list below – these are run locally by either ourselves, or our training partners, and are ideal for individuals and small businesses. Our Training Calendar has all the details for our currently scheduled Gainsborough open courses. Please just email our training team to enquire about other venues.
