About Us

The name Concrew Training comes from the old and largely obsolete word, “Concrew” which means “to grow together”. It seemed highly appropriate for a training company that works so closely with its staff, trainers and customers.

I set up Concrew Training, in 2014, with the simple goal of goal of providing high value training with exceptional levels of customer service; in short high quality training at affordable prices, with first class service.

Our initial focus was providing management development and CPD services to the public and further education sectors, taking over from where “National Training Resources” and their “Excellence in Leaning” division had left off. A clear focus and tight cost controls minimised the pitfalls but funding for these sectors remained tight.

We now offer a range of products and services that is attractive to all sectors, private, commercial, charitable, not for profit, public and of course education.

Our courses highly participative, fun and effective, they make even dry subjects enjoyable and rewarding. But above all they are highly practical in nature with a large focus on “how to achieve” rather than the less useful “what needs to be achieved”

With the arrival of Covid-19 in 2020 we redeveloped our courses to allow them to be delivered in either a traditional face-to-face environment or via online virtual classrooms. At all times with a live and highly experienced subject specialist leading the sessions.

We strive to keep pricing structures honest, simple and clear, with no hidden extras. We don’t hide behind phrases like plus trainer out of pocket expenses or similar, travel and accommodation costs can easily add hundreds of pounds to the bill, we include all costs when we quote.
