Candidate Needs

There are no barriers to undertaking training. If candidates have any physical or learning needs for the group work or the assessment, this should be notified as part of the booking.


We can deliver the training at your venue which has a suitable training room or we can support you in arranging a suitable external venue. Training at your venue can save you costs but at the same time risk your staff being distracted by day to day concerns that arise, which may not be suitable as they approach the assessment.

Locations will require:

  • Room big enough to sit 16 candidates to sit in a horseshoe
  • Tables for group work and assessment at the end of the session
  • Projector and screen with computer connection, however, we can provide a projector with laptop

While we will deliver our courses across the country, we focus on supporting local businesses in south Wales from Cardigan to Haverfordwest, Carmarthen, Swansea, Cardiff and Newport.
