Formed in 2000 by the merger of their individual training businesses, Sharon Kennedy and Ian Topping still maintain the core values for learning and development that brought them together.

With a combined 50 years of experience in Training and Development, they have built a reputation for effective, practical, and also enjoyable training interventions.

Starting out in the chemical and nuclear industries, they have built a proven track record of success across public, private and third sector interests, from multinationals to SME’s, and are ready to do the same for your organisation


Our aim is to always make a lasting difference.  The success of this philosophy is seen in the long-term relationships we have with many of our clients.

Our training solutions always begin with a conversation with our customer.  We want to help you make real changes, and so we listen to what’s important to you.

We want to know your aspirations, and the challenges you face.  We care about your achievements, and where you want to go next.

Nothing is "off the peg".  On each occasion, we take a fresh practical approach to bring about a real benefit for you and your organisation, and when tempered with our understanding of local issues, our clients reap the best of both worlds.


From professional advice, to a complete training package, whether it is “train the trainer” or instructional techniques, facilitation or interpersonal skills, management or team-working methods, coaching or mentoring skills, to name but a few.

Backed by a portfolio of nationally accredited qualifications, we are a prominent Cumbrian company, offering such course as

  • Advice and Guidance
  • Workplace Coaching
  • Mentoring
  • Customer Service
  • Team Leader and Supervision skills
  • Assessment & Internal Quality Assurance (TAQA)
  • Award in Education and Training (formerly PTLLS)

To begin the conversation and discover what we can do for you and your organisation, contact either Sharon or Ian on 01946 861195 for a free initial consultation.
