We work with and support a great many businesses throughout the South - West of England. We take great pride in providing the highest quality training whilst ensuring both staff and students are 100% satisfied with the service they receive. We welcome all feedback, some of which is shown below.
I have to say a very big thank you to GHQ overall for your professionalism in assisting us to find a Business Administrator. Our apprentice really has taken to this role so well and he is settling in as part of the family already. He is very proactive in everything he does and the tasks we give him are immediately dealt with and in a professional manner. From beginning to end the service, guidance, advice and support has been fantastic. GHQ go out of their way to source the right candidates for the role available, our apprentice is a perfect match.

“As a small business it is very important that we get the right employee into the right role. GHQ has provided two excellent candidates through the apprentice scheme. They have helped train, support and guide both employees throughout their apprenticeships. As a new provider for such a scheme GHQ has been a valuable source of information and resource for myself. With GHQ the apprentices have felt that they are being trained in skills that will guide them throughout life and their chosen career path, from an employer point of view having an apprentice has only brought benefits to the workplace and has been a very positive experience”.

The service and help received from GHQ has proved invaluable in our search for a high-quality apprentice. By linking our organisation with a range of suitable applicants GHQ has enabled us to recruit a new team member who is rapidly proving to be an asset to the whole organisation.

We opted to work alongside GHQ as a partner when selecting people for our two year Modern Apprenticeships. We were keen to work alongside a provider that delivered good support for modules and the opportunity for young people to regularly study alongside peers who were working in other settings. The standard of the young people we have had has always been exceptionally high and our links with their tutors are strong. We have always found them to be positive and encouraging to the young people they work with and professional in their dealings with us. They were extremely helpful during the selection process when we took on new apprentices.

The Devon & Cornwall Food Association (DCFA) is a charitable organisation with limited financial backing. DCFA is absolutely delighted with the service received from GHQ Training in Plymouth. Having had a couple of false starts from other sources DCFA was beginning to lose faith in the National Apprenticeship Scheme but GHQ soon restored our faith. Nothing has been too much trouble, and the patience and understanding of both Managers and Staff has been beyond the norm. Our current apprentice is now firmly ensconced into our organisation and we have great faith in the backup that GHQ provides, both in advice and in the training provided. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending GHQ Training to others.Company Secretary - DCFA

Our students provide us with the most valuable feedback. We encourage each and every one of them to bring their views to our attention, both during and on completion of their qualification, so we can monitor exactly how we are doing. Here's what they think
Congratulations to Nicole Robinson for completing her NVQ Diploma in Nail Services! We wish you all the best for the future.
Nicole Robinson, Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Nail Services
I have very much enjoyed participating in Level 2 Beauty Therapy, this course has given me the skills I will take with me to any further career. By finishing my Level 2 it has given me the motivation to start level 3 and progress to the best of my ability in the beauty industry. I've made new friends during this course and loved every unit involved. Thank you so much to Sam Woods, Amie Williams, Claire Borrill and Nicky Walters for helping me get this far.

Hello, my name is Tara Lewis. I have been a learner of Nikki's for over a year now. I am happy to say I have completed my N.V.Q Level 3 in Support, Teaching and Learning and am now a qualified Teaching Assistant. I have to say that Nikki has been fantastic with me. I'm 37, busy with family and work and not too confident in my abilities when it came to core skills!! however my tutor has always kept me on track when I've worried about fitting it all in, she's kept a gentle nudge to encourage me to crack on with it at times and has always responded to me quickly when I've had any worries or handed anything in. Nikki has also managed to give me the confidence to achieve my core skills, the maths was of particular concern to me, Nikki worked hard to get my confidence up. The ICT was literally a start from scratch procedure as I haven't done any since aged 16...and have had my head buried in the sand with ICT since! Thanks to her patient tuition I managed to pass first time. I finally know that power point is not as complicated as it looks and I am so proud of everything I have achieved. It really has given me much more confidence. Thank you Nikki, for all you have done.

Judith is very helpful as an Assessor, if I ever text her needing any information regarding my course she is always happy to help. I always look forward to my meetings with her and i'm sure all the other students would agree.

I thought the assessors course was very interesting. All the staff were really helpful and nice. I would recommend GHQ Training to friends. Many Thanks.
I had a fabulous experience with GHQ Training. All the staff were great and very supportive. Thank you all so much.
Alison Littman, Level 2 Nail Technician
Having decided to change my career after 20 years working within business administration needless to say I was a little hesitant as well as nervous. I have to say the staff at GHQ have been amazing and I haven't looked back. Claire my assessor has been so supportive and has been available at all times and Sara has been brilliant delivering the units and helping with anything you are unsure about. I have completed my level 2 in Support, Teaching and Learning in Schools and I am now on my level 3 Diploma. I would definitely recommend GHQ and would advise anyone who is a little bit nervous or even hesitant like myself to just go and speak to them you will not regret it.
Julie Damerell, Level 2 and 3 STLS
I found that my childcare course at GHQ lead me to the job that I really wanted to do, which is working with people with disabilities. the teaching staff are great and gave me all the support and help I needed to succeed and finish my course.
