Testimonials

“Staff development is vital to the running of a successful business. My team are very happy with the training they have received from the SFI Project via GCS Training and, as they progress through the levels, they are happy to work with familiar faces with whom they have formed a real bond. As the educational levels of my staff are so different - in some cases staff are coming back to formal training after a break of many years – GCS Training through the SFI project has been excellent at adapting to suit the needs of each individual which, in turn, has really helped to build their confidence.”

Tim Williams, Director of Hengoed Care (which incorporates Hengoed Court and Hengoed Park Care Homes)

“I have found the training packages offered by the SFI scheme through Gower College Swansea to be very flexible and ideal for my needs, employees have completed several qualifications thanks to SFI funding. “For example, many of my staff are students and are only around at the weekend but GCS Training was happy to cater to them and ran courses exclusively for them outside of the ‘normal’ working week.”
