Relaxed but vibrant delivery makes this an enjoyable 2 days of instructions. Recommended for various competency groups

Graham Bonnyman

HR Manager, Aquajet (GB) Ltd

Fantastic course. The most practical and informative train the trainer course I have come across. I have had great feedback from the other participants and will definitely be recommending your services around the business

Craig Stalker

Quality Safety and Training Manager, G4S Integrated Services

Case Study: Autoglass & Belron Group

The Belron Group is the world’s leading vehicle repair & replacement glass company. Perhaps best known by UK consumers for its Autoglass brand, the company is responsible for the handling of a delicate product in large volumes.

The 2 day City & Guilds manual handling train the trainer event was held for participants from a cross section of the group’s businesses. Some were existing manual handling trainers and others were new to the subject. According to Standards Manager Lameck Sithole, “the training was extremely beneficial. It was tailored to our needs and run in a very interactive manner to maximise the company specific benefits. The participants have been well equipped to deliver training to our handlers.”

As the handling of windscreens involved some very specific best practice techniques, Alistair Bromhead undertook a site visit to understand the process, talk to site personnel and to watch handlers in action. Discussions were subsequently held with the health and safety management team to further develop best practice which was then integrated into the 2 day train the trainer course.

An essential course for trainers on how to deliver manual handling training. Well informed and structured, it provides you with all the tools needed to become a successful trainer

Robert Scholefield

Team Leader, Cereform Ltd

Refreshing new ideas and the course provided plenty of suggestions for additions to my future courses

Daffyd Ellis

Independent Trainer

Great notes and aids for future training use. First class training provider and learning methodologies

Colin Webb

H&S Advisor, Health Protection Agency

I was really impressed and inspired by the course!

Jill Moore

HR & Office Manager, Seamap (UK) Ltd

Case Study: Gate Gourmet

Gate Gourmet is the world’s largest independent provider of catering and provisioning services for airlines and railroads. The company supplies more than 200 million meals at some 120 airport locations around the globe.

The company had a variety of manual handling initiatives and ran the 2 day City & Guilds Manual Handling Train the Trainer course in-house at their Heathrow site for staff from a number of locations across the UK to:

  • Develop new trainers to cascade in-house manual handling training
  • Ensure that all of the trainers had a similar level of technical knowledge
    Provide a fresh pair of eyes on the subject as well as new ideas for interactive exercises to obtain participation and buy-in
  • Facilitate discussions regarding the best format to use for the subsequent handler training sessions

The feedback from the trainers was extremely positive and they felt well equipped for the subsequent meetings to fine-tune the format for their own handler training.

According to company trainer Simon Courage, “the 2 day City & Guilds Manual Handling Train the Trainer course worked well for us. Alistair ran it in an interactive manner, getting everyone involved and concentrating on the specific handling issues which we face. Even those who have been running handler training for years found the training most beneficial”

Course content was very informative with excellent tips on presenting skills. It provided a good insight into involving the group when running my own sessions

Daniel Pemberton

Operations Manager, Community Waste Ltd

John Jackson was an exceptional, knowledgeable and motivating tutor. The course provided me with all the necessary information to run my own training and I now feel very well prepared

Dean Cox

Trainer, British Transport Police

Excellent course. I will now feel extremely confident delivering this content in the workplace

Bruce Gander

Manager of Operations, Peri Ltd

Firstly can I say how much I enjoyed the course, the venue was first class and the instruction by John Jackson was excellent. The structure is great and aids easy understanding, so much so that I have already delivered 2 courses and the feedback has been very positive which is most gratifying. This is clearly down to the quality of the training I received and the tools provided to enable me to deliver my own training sessions. Rest assured I will not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone seeking training

Tony Hayward

Independent Consultant

Very enjoyable 2 days. Have learnt lots. Would not have dreamt that I would be volunteering to deliver a presentation on anatomy.

Dave Moore

Trainer, Transport for London

Excellent resources to enable the practical application of the training

One month later:

I have now completed manual handling training with the whole company, based upon the course material and suggestions you provided. It has proved to be a revelation to many people, and I am confident that we are now in a much safer place

Simon Cooksey

New Product Introduction Manager, ArtSystems Ltd

Thank-you again for the excellent course you provided. I found it very informative and enjoyable and will have no hesitation in recommending your services

Edward Kessell

Removals Manager, Martells International Removers<br />

We already ran an in-house course on manual handling. However, as a result of the City & Guilds Manual Handling Train the Trainer course, we have re-written our own training to include many of the techniques and examples suggested by Alistair. It is now a much more interactive course and our trainers have also been given credibility and confidence through their City & Guilds certification.

Jim Maccall

National Training Manager, Brandon Hire Plc

I would highly recommend this course to trainers, both new to the role and also those with experience. Alistair delivers the course content in a very professional and easy manner with the emphasis on getting everyone involved. Lots of practical exercises, interaction and sharing of training tips and ideas. The City & Guilds accreditation is the icing on the cake. Highly recommended.

Sandy Mackay

Health and Safety Trainer, Total Waste Management Alliance<br />

An enjoyable and informative course, with very clear instructions

Carl Bell

Operations Manager, Citipost

I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to others; I found it very useful and will aid our company to provide quality training to all our staff. The two day course was very well presented, this along with the training aids you provided meant that myself and the other two members from our team are fully equipped to deliver our in-house courses

Paul Digby

Fire Safety Advisor, West London Health Estates and Facilities

I cannot recommend this course enough! It has substantially reduced my time in preparing overheads, notes and training techniques. Novice and professional alike will gain from this course and from a very knowledgeable instructor.
