From the first conversation I had with James at a nursery Owners Forum, I have felt comfortable with his company and the training that he offers. Showcase Training has delivered exactly what they have described and I guess the proof of this will be when our first two trainees complete their qualification later this summer. I would have no hesitation in recommending Showcase Training ( and have already done so) and hope that they will be able to find us further apprentices in the near future.

 

Mary Mould
Woodham Farm Day Nursery

As a training provider I am delighted with Showcase Training, what they deliver and how they deliver it. They make themselves available, are always happy to support me and the learners and demonstrate professionalism throughout. In particular I have worked with Luke to support a learner who was struggling with her learning and turned around what could have been a failed learner. He invested in the learner and made himself personally available to demonstrate how, as a training provider, Showcase were committed to supporting the learners and understanding their needs. This flexibility and quality touch, meant that the learner continued and successfully completed the course. I could not recommend Showcase Training enough. I have recently moved into a different county but will continue to use Showcase training as I believe in them as a training provider and have seen the quality they deliver.

Anthony Dooling
Little Druids

We are pleased with the way Showcase Training deliver the apprenticeships and support their learners. The communication between the assessors, learners and us is effective and this is proven in the results they get when the learners complete. James is very informative in regards to how we should work with apprentices, especially in regards to Off the Job Training.

Ashleigh Richmond
Woodlands Early Learning

I have used many training providers over the past 13 years and think that Showcase are the best there is.  They listen, we have a good working relationship.  They don’t have a high turnover of assessors.  The candidates are treated well and supported as they are needed individually.
