QA Associates are highly experienced providers of ‘accredited’ specialist training in either short course format or one year Apprenticeships.
We work with employers to develop professional development training programmes that match staff training needs and that fit around business operations.
Training is delivered in a classroom environment, on-the-job training or as ‘e’Learning. Courses can be delivered on site or at an appropriate local training venue.
We work in the following sectors, all having an emphasis on Health and Safety:
Aviation Operations on the Ground
‘Operations on the Ground’ is the term used to describe the essential work that contributes to the effective and efficient running of an airport.These activities not only help to get flights away on time but are concerned with essential health, safety and security of employees and the public in and around the terminal and airside.
We operate an ‘Accredited Assessment Centre’ for a number of Fire and Rescue Services enabling the service to concentrate on delivering expert specialist training whilst QA Associates look after the ‘back office’ operation of registration, quality assurance and certification. We offer a wide range of available courses.
Hospitality & Food Safety
The provision of food to the public from it’s manufacture to it’s delivery through retail outlets for domestic use or as part of the Tourism and Leisure industry places a legal and moral responsibility on employers to ensure that staff are trained so that food provided to the public is safe and fit for consumption.
We work with Employers, Job Centre’s and Employment Agencies and have a range of bespoke Employability Skills courses designed to help Job Seekers find employment. We have a longstanding reputation of offering a user-friendly approach to all Job Seekers referred to us.
Children & Young Peoples Workforce
Our ‘quality assured’ programme of training modules selected specifically for the Pre-School Nursery sector provide the training and support for employers to meet their statutory obligations and enable the staff to enhance their work-skills and be rewarded with a formal qualification from an Awarding Body.
Warehousing & Logistics
Although traditional warehousing has declined, with the gradual introduction of ‘Just In Time’ techniques, the growth of importing and exporting across Europe has necessitated large storage facilities in industrial areas of cities and towns and villages to provide a supply chain for any given range of products.
