After being in the Work based Learning Business for nearly 30 years, it was a genuine surprise to find an Awarding Organisation that understood completely the sort of issues that affect our business. Service from Skillsfirst has been exemplary and we feel we have a true working partnership between us .

Key Training

The support and guidance from the Skillsfirst team has been invaluable with equipping delivery staff with the knowledge and confidence to prepare for End-point Assessment. The attendance of team meetings, standardisation and training sessions by Skillsfirst staff has helped to develop excellent working relationships and ensure that the delivery of the new apprenticeship standards is in line with the End-point Assessment requirements.

Learning Unlimited

I have been dealing with Skillsfirst for a number of years, I find their service impeccable. Nothing is too much, or even too little. They are a professional awarding body and their service exceeds their competitors by miles. When dealing with Skillsfirst, you are treated as an important customer no matter the query. I would recommend them to anyone as a first class awarding organisation, who delivers service on time and right every time.
