Our Experience

"I have worked with Lisa since last October running assessment centres for BSKYB in the Newcastle area. Lisa has played a major part in the successful running of these centres as Lead Assessor and also stepping in as an Assessor where necessary. Lisa is flexible, very professional, energetic, confident, always has a balanced opinion and very much in control when dealing with candidates and colleagues. I am pleased that Lisa is on my team and look forward to working with her again soon."
Dana Holmes, Hays Account Mgr/Recruitment Partner (on behalf of client BSKYB), North of England.
"I worked with Lisa during 2012 when she was engaged to support a significant change project at Northumberland County Council. Lisa was very flexible in her approach to the assignment and I found her to be very pragmatic and understanding in her approach, offering effective and realistic solutions during challenging and emotional situations. Lisa immediately gained credibility across the whole organisation. She fostered excellent relationships with senior management, trade unions and work colleagues, and took time to fully understand the business and its requirements. Lisa quickly integrated into the team and was able to add value in other areas during her time with us. I was impressed with Lisa's standard of work and her work ethic, and was sorry to see her leave at the end of the contract. I would certainly recommend her to others."
Janice Barclay, Lead HR Business Partner, Transformation Group, Northumberland County Council.
"In 2009/2010, Lisa supported our HR and Payroll Service through a huge transformation programme including changing culture, changing processes and procedures and moving to a different HR/Payroll system. Due to Lisa's positive attitude and her years of experience I believe Lisa’s role was instrumental in moving the HR Service forward including the teams being more customer focused, improving performance and introducing more automated services. I would certainly recommend Lisa supporting your organisation."
Vicky Spoors, HR Service Lead, BT South Tyneside.
"Catherine has worked with us to produce new staff contracts and a staff handbook. She met with our staff over a number of weeks to ensure that they understood the documents and that the guidelines set out in the handbook reflect best practice and support our staff in providing an excellent standard of service to our customers."
Hunday Manor Hotel
"Catherine has provided support for Four Housing on a number of coaching assignments for our Managers and Heads of Service over the last 12 months.
These have resulted in tangible and quantifiable business outcomes and benefits for the Managers involved. Catherine's approach keeps the business aims at the heart of the coaching but her encouraging but challenging style and business experience ensures that our staff are engaged, motivated and self reflective."
Carla O'May, Head of HR and Organisational Development, Four Housing
"Core Training designed and delivered a Stress Awareness for the Just Ask Team. The feedback was extremely positive from the group and from my own point of view I found Catherine really great to work with. She was professional at all times, and very importantly for me, really helped me hone down what I was looking for. This project has come at a busy time for me, so being able to rely on someone external who delivered what I wanted was a big help. I would definitely recommend her to others."
Julie Bullimore, Newcastle University.
"Core Training helped us to develop and deliver a piece of bespoke training that was so relevant yet so adaptable that we eventually restructured an element of our business around the principles explored within the piece. Other Housing Providers who received the training have adapted and tweaked it to form the core of their general customer service training.
The team at Core Training were great and could not do enough to ensure that we received a product which exceeded the standard we originally thought we needed."
Mark Sproat, Bernicia
"Our organisation has attended Core Training courses for a number of years and have always found the trainers very personable, with interesting and engaging content creating real results which have had a lasting effect on the people in our firm."
Helen Finn, Tait Walker
"Core Training provided services including management of our training, liaising with the business senior managers in developing and formulating training plans as well as the design and delivery of a number of key training modules. They always provided an excellent service, tailored to our business needs."
Mike Furze, Regional Director, Kier North Tyneside
"Core Training and Consultancy Limited have worked with Central Locality Children's Centres in relation to two significant projects. In both cases, I have found the training consultant and director to be highly professional in her approach to planning and co-ordinating delivery of the projects. More importantly, delivery has been effective in terms of timing, quality and outcomes."
Amanda Hartley, Children's Centre Locality Manager
"The Core Training and Consultancy team has worked closely with us in designing and delivering bespoke appraisal skills training for managers to support the implementation of our revised appraisal scheme. Feedback on the course content, training materials and training delivery has been extremely positive with delegates saying they found the course extremely relevant, informative and enjoyable. The practical sessions have been particularly useful in helping managers understand the process and in giving them a clear framework for carrying out the appraisal meeting. New managers in particular say they feel more confident about carrying out their first appraisal."
