We are the training experts

Tess Story

The Tess story started back in 2009, we wanted to create learning moments and inspire people through coaching and training. This basic desire turned in to excitement that turned in to a deep passion for delivering world class learning and development solutions. That’s where we are at today. We mainly work with businesses to develop their people’s skillsets but we do also work with disadvantaged people such as volunteers, the unemployed and those coming out of prison.

Businesses typically choose us to deliver their learning and development programmes because of our ability to listen, tailor and bespoke our programmes to suit their individual needs. We are proud to work with a real range of small, medium, large and major businesses and organisations from across the land. Our programmes can be behavioural, they can carry qualifications and they can be more safety focused where our sister brand Safe & Trained deliver Chapter 8 and CSAS to a variety of clients.

We are passionate about helping Apprenticeship Levy clients and deliver a real range of Standards including Leadership and Management including Aspiring Leader Programmes, Food and Catering, IT and Digital Marketing, Customer Service, Improvement Practitioner, L&D, Project Manager, Mentoring, Coaching and many many more. We deliver these nationally through a blended approach.

We are fortunate at times to have funding for smaller courses which can include Spectator Safety, Customer Service, IT, and Leadership and many many more.

We also deliver advance learner loans which include Intelligence Operative, Customer Service, Business Enterprise, Management and Spectator Safety L4.

So Why Choose Tess?

We aren’t a massive fan of the expression ‘one stop shop’ but it does get across the point that we can deliver to all parts and all areas of your business! Thus saving you time, effort and money.

No tick boxes in sight! We actually train, coach and develop the people. We can even deliver modules remotely for anyone on the move!

We use the best quality partners from BKSB to help us pinpoint and differentiate our learning for each person.

No more massive portfolios – learners can work on Smartphones, Ipads, Laptops plus Employers can login and check learner’s progress

Did we point out we deliver world class training and development? This is why most levy payers are interested in us as we can compliment and connect the levy to the business need and help demonstrate and show real ROI

We could go on and on but the above gives you a flavour of us and our solutions. Thank you for reading the Tess story and get in touch if we can help. Make our day and perhaps we will make your day in return.
