We have had the pleasure of supporting college initiatives with local schools and have worked closely with the college to develop an industry specific apprenticeship. This has benefitted us greatly as we have been able to increase the awareness of our sector and company profile to the young future workforce and ensure that the training provided by the college fits our industry requirements. Accessing a variety of training programmes, such as Business Administration and Food Manufacturing Engineering Apprenticeships, has enabled us to develop our colleagues, increasing both their skills and knowledge in the workplace.”

“Central Training are very professional, they work to the timelines that you give them, and they always endeavour to find a solution to your training needs. We were particularly impressed with their communications and the suitability of their training provision. If we require any bespoke courses in the future, we would look to Business, Services & Training at Pembrokeshire College.”

Alex Britton, Mooring Analyst, Svitzer Marine

“I have worked with Pembrokeshire College for a number of years and have been supported by an assessor to undertake my Level 4 in Health and Social Care. The assessor has also supported the staff to achieve their Level 2 and 3, she has been reliable, professional and has encouraged and supported the candidates according to their needs.

“The assessor has met the candidates in all the community homes, depending on where they work, and has catered for the unsocial hours in their assessments. We are looking to enrol more candidates in the future and will be doing this with Business Central at Pembrokeshire College because we are confident they will provide a quality service. Previously Perthyn had sought support from other providers and candidates had not completed their qualifications within the time frame but Business Central’s training have supported us with this.”

Wayne Goss, Perthyn Residential Home
