We, first and foremost, regard our students as colleagues dedicated to the common cause of enhancing the lives of service-users.

We recognise the fundamental importance of providing an environment in which their learning is acknowledged, encouraged & integrated into working practices. This influences who we are and everything we do.

We believe in the importance of a learning organisation.

Human services and non-profit organisations are always learning to deliver better services.

We have spent over 20 years working as training experts. In that role we have combined extensive first-line experience with a detailed knowledge of the strategic and operational dynamics of the space.

From that we have developed a range of bespoke tools, methodologies and models that are aimed specifically at people in human services and non-profit organisations and provide us with a unique perspective on the sector. This drives how we develop our training programmes but it is also the foundation on which our consultancy services are built.
