Train4 has substantial experience working across a wide range of initiatives and funding streams on a national basis.

We have developed long term relationships with an increasing number of partners who we supported across a range of programmes such as Apprenticeships, ESF NEET Initiatives, Work Based Learning, Sector Based Work Academies, Programmes for the Unemployed, The Work Programme, Flexible New Deal, Response to Redundancy and Train 2 Gain.

As a result of an ever changing funding environment, we have developed delivery models and learner referral networks that are flexible and able to support the objectives of our funding partners, whilst also embracing the Government initiatives such as digital and sustainable agenda’s.

We achieve this through:

  1. Outstanding teaching and learning that delivers very high outcomes for learners in terms of retention and success rates
  2. Learner progression actively supported by a comprehensive post course service which promotes employment opportunities and further progression routes
  3. Capacity building across a diverse range of funding streams including localised and national referrals

What our learners say about us:

We had an excellent Tutor who I found highly skilled in motivating, controlling, assisting and supporting a highly disparate group. As a middle aged man with professional qualifications and years of experience I was sceptical about what I could gain from the course. However, he introduced me to aspects of job searching I had not considered, changes in the legislation, opportunities I had not thought of, techniques I had not practiced. I used his guidance to search for work to negotiate interviews and ultimately to gain employment” – A.R. – Oxford

From day one after finding out I passed my course, a member of the Aftercare team has been regularly keeping up with how my interview, training and now job has been going. I really feel looked after!” – D.M., Cambridge

Train4 worked with me throughout my course, and continued to give me help afterwards. They kept in regular touch with me, sending me vacancies and helping to make sure that I was ready for my interview. I am now working and honestly don’t think I could have done it without you” – R.S. Lincoln

The training was informative and enjoyable and best of all I passed! Thank you!” – L.S. Slough

“Just to say how much I enjoyed the course, it was a team effort, Simon the Trainer was a great guy, made the whole thing worthwhile” – G.T. Norwich
