Some of the recent feedback we have received about our training and courses.
We initially used Gainsborough as an outsourced HR function in a period of rapid expansion, having been recommended by the CEO of a previous client of theirs – so it doesn't come with a much higher recommendation than that!
We worked with Bonita Hopkins who we found to be both professional and practical in sourcing candidates for a wide variety of roles. She took our current approach and enhanced it with her considerable experience, ensuring managers focussed on seeing the right people with the right skills for the roles.
In addition they have undertaken training and mentoring work for our team of supervisors, which I know they have found invaluable. The material was relevant and with practical application to our business.
Bonnie took time to understand our business and our ethos, and ensured we were all on the same page in taking our business forward.

I needed to refresh my academic skills when getting a job in HR department at the British Museum Company. The Gainsborough Training CIPD Certificate Programmes were the perfect fit for me - fantastic class schedules and a great team of tutors, lead by Bonita Hopkins. I gained confidence and expanded my comfort zones.
Gainsborough Training gave me my jump-start and prompted me to strive for future success. Taking two HR certificates with Gainsborough Training definitely widened my skill set. I loved being part of the groups comprised of students from private and public organisations.
When started the course I was a Payroll Administrator for the Company by the time I finished CERLAP I was made Senior HR Advisor and since a year ago I am Head of HR British Museum Company.
My respect and thanks to Bonita and her team.

Gainsborough has taken the time to get know CBS and this really helps when we have a training requirement as they are quickly able to adapt the training to meet our expectations. Gainsborough offers value for money. Trainers at Gainsborough are very professional.
Recent training courses include ‘How to Network and Presentation Skills’.
Training sessions offered a good balance between delegate participation and teaching. The practical exercises provided a useful tool for individuals with examples, enabling them to use in real-life situations.
Feedback from candidates – they enjoyed the training and it was very worthwhile.

We have worked with Gainsborough for many years and they have provided us with a range of different services. For example, they have run a number of management development programmes and these have all been well received.
The Gainsborough team are very knowledgeable on their subjects and also have the knack of being able to make the issues understandable to a range of different people.

Our evaluation forms indicate that the majority of delegates have found the modules 'very helpful'.
