What others say

 

Brook Street

"Having been a Training Manager for almost 20 years, I have always tried to resource new material that I am allowed to adapt for our Company's use. This has been a consistent challenge. No more!

'Buy and Train' allows me to source current learning material, easily accessed, at a very reasonable price, that I can then customise to suit our business needs. This has saved me a lot of development time when designing new courses, which is invaluable when working under time constraints . The content is always easy to use, interpret and is very professionally presented . I have the peace of mind that it is designed by experts in this field, and this gives me confidence that the theories and methodology used have been validated and are well accepted.

I have been particularly impressed with the flexibility and speed of response when Buy and Train did not have a product I wanted. They spent time creating material for me, that is now available on line to everyone.

I would, and have, recommended Buy and Train to anyone needing support in their training role."

Annie Hodkinson, Training Consultant - Brook Street (UK) Limited
