An approach based on ethics and integrity

Engage, challenge, stimulate and innovate

If we could sum up who we are, what we do, and how we do it in three key statements – they would be:

We love to make a difference – in every project we work to challenge and innovate
We provide creative training that is also pragmatic – our approach helps your staff make improvements so that you see return on investment
We’re true to our own standards – working ethically in support of our staff, our local community and the environment

Award-winning Formation

Formation is an award winning training company. We are passionate about making a difference. We are delighted that our approach has resulted in several local, regional and national awards, in categories such as ‘Commitment to the Community’ ‘Excellence in People Development’ and ‘Green Award.’

Making a difference

Formation Training wouldn’t exist if we didn’t believe we could make a real difference to your organisation. Since 1997 we have been working to develop people to be the very best they can be.

“We were really pleased with the work Formation carried out for us. We found them to be extremely professional and knowledgeable and they were a pleasure to work with. We were also very impressed with their ability to deliver the project to an extremely tight timescale. The final outcomes exceeded our expectations.”

Working with you

Our team is friendly and approachable. As well as lead trainers, we have a UK wide pool of associate trainers, to provide excellent capacity. An experienced and capable support team provides support for our trainers in respect of preparing materials, arranging logistics and supporting project activities. This means that you can rest assured that we can respond quickly and efficiently to your queries and requirements.

“It was great to have a flexible and honest trainer. Someone open and approachable who encouraged learning all of the time. I really felt that I was learning from all of the participants as well as the trainer and that this was encouraged.”

As well as helping you look after your staff, we do everything we can to look after ours. We believe that businesses can and should be a key driver in effecting positive change. We do our bit by promoting positive work life balance, reducing our environmental impact and volunteering in our community. Every member of the team has access to learning and development. We offer a range of family-friendly policies. We work in our local community to develop enterprise skills, support mock interviews, and host undergraduate placements. A number of our team volunteer as School Governors.
