Riverside Training’s mission is to be the national ‘Business Skills’ Apprenticeship provider of choice, delivering a range of high quality commercial training programmes aimed at upskilling learners in the workplace and enhancing their utility to employers.

Business Principles:

We aim to develop and grow our business in a sustainable manner. We want to form partnerships with our employers and support them in developing their workforce through apprenticeships and commercial training in order to enhance their company’s operating capability.

Our training is employer centred and learner focused. The learner is the recipient and focus of the training delivery, but our employers sit at the centre of the training. We aim to deliver apprenticeships and commercial training that are tailored to the employers needs to ensure that the learners – their employees – develop through the training to the benefit of the company.

We are quality driven. We aim to deliver the highest possible standard of commercial training to our learners. We will not substitute quality for results and our growth will only be delivered in parallel with stringent quality guidelines.

We are committed to equality and diversity in the workplace. We will ensure equal opportunities for all of our staff and seek to employ only the best people to work with us. We will pass on our ethos of equality and diversity to our learners as part of their training.

Integrity and honesty at the heart of our business. We will always compete fairly and never denigrate other companies
