About Riverside Training
Riverside Training was founded in 1996 to provide specialist training to business professionals. Today we are working nationally across a broad and diverse range of industry sectors. We see ourselves as partners, not just providers and we do this by listening to your business needs, goals and priorities and by building the right training and delivery solutions.
We are committed to providing excellent development opportunities to teams and individuals seamlessly with minimal disruption and maximum results and we are constantly innovating to achieve this goal. We provide a robust recruitment service for new Apprentices by taking the time to advertise, select and recruit the right people for each role.
We work with an impressive list of organisations across many disciplines and sectors including Financial Services, Public Sector and Health Care & Commerce and we employ tutors from these areas to ensure we have relevant working knowledge and fully understand the specific needs of that industry which puts us ahead of our competitors.
Our comprehensive range of qualifications are aimed at business professionals looking to develop their skills further and gain recognised qualifications along the way to endorse their achievements. We are not generalists, we are specialists, and we go above and beyond what’s expected.
In a nutshell, we ensure that the organisations we partner with achieve tangible, measurable results by developing their staff to reach their full potential whilst providing excellent customer service and support.
What people are saying about us
Lisa Midgley – Close Brothers – Banking Division
“One of the reasons we went into partnership with Riverside Training was their ability to understand our business at pace and work with us to offer the right apprenticeships for our employees, and not to push individuals onto a programme to gain more numbers. Career development is very important for us here in Close Brothers Premium Finance, and the high standard of service that we get from Riverside and the attention to detail makes a huge difference for our employees experience.”
Emma Hansan – Connexus Group – Learning & Development Officer
“Riverside Training gives excellent value for money and provides monthly reports on colleagues’ progress, which enables managers, learning & development and human resources to keep track of colleagues’ progress. The Assessors arrive on time and complete their assessing in the allotted time.”
Tony Ellender – Balfour Beatty
“Offering Apprenticeships has been a great benefit to our business. We’ve seen apprentices grow through their courses. Our managers are actively involved in setting targets and supporting the direction of staff development.”
Janine Liddle – Cotswold Motor Group – Contact Centre Manager
“We initially started our apprentice scheme with Riverside Training at one of our Dealerships, and were so impressed with the quality of the applicants and the level of support provided by their training team, that we had rolled the programme out across our other Dealerships. The young apprentices who have completed the programme have all secured permanent positions, and the programme now forms an important part of our recruitment strategy.”
