Training Provider Realises Growth Potential thanks to the Knowsley Growth Hub

Adapt (UK) Training Services Ltd is a nationwide provider of quality accredited training services. The company works throughout the UK in diverse sectors from construction to food manufacturers.

Company Director, Paul Hennessey, contacted the Knowsley Growth Hub to find out if support was available, and found out about the availability of free specialist support through the Business Growth Programme.

After an initial meeting with the Growth Hub Business Advisor the company identified that it would benefit from specialist areas of Tendering and Website Support. Paul said “Accessing support for the company’s website was our initial priority.  The business has to respond quickly to the training needs and requirements of our customers.  In order to attract new and retain existing customers it’s important that we keep our training offer up-to-date, and the ability to amend our website as and when required was vital.”

Using specialist consultancy advice allowed Paul to build the skills he needed to control, manage and maintain the company’s website. Paul said “I was so pleased with the support. The consultant, Jonathan Bruce of Ident Creative, was very approachable and understood the needs of our business”.

Not wanting to rest on their laurels, the company were also considering expansion of operations by purchasing a Mobile Elevated Work Platform and a Cherry Picker. Paul advised “Investing in new machinery would enable the company to run more than one course at the same time, and generate new business contracts”.

Paul contacted the Knowsley Growth Hub and was given information about the Knowsley Business Grant (KBG). His subsequent application was supported throughout the process by the Growth Hub Business Advisor.

Paul said “As a company Adapt UK has really benefited from the support we received from the Knowsley Growth Hub. I would recommend any local business give the team a call.”
