Why Brian Cairns?

30+ Years Experience

I have been involved in delivering apprenticeships, further education and commercial training courses for over thirty years, initially as a lecturer/assessor and latterly with operations management and directorship experience within training providers and colleges.

Ofsted Inspection Experienced

College nominee for two inspections and in senior roles for three other inspections I am very familiar with the Ofsted Inspection regimes and continuous improvement through self-assessment and review.

Extensive Support

Through my experience, I am able to offer extensive support from getting you onto the register of training providers, developing policies and procedures. establishing quality assurance regimes, external governance and providing staff training all tailored to suit your own requirements.

Exceptional Value

 I am more than capable of providing as much support that you need, all tailored to your organisations requirements, and time scales at competitive day rates + travel costs, invoiced monthly to offer complete flexibility and ongoing support.

Customer Orientated

I recognise the uniqueness of each training providers culture and values in relation to the sectors you all work in to deliver training. I will work with you as a member of your team to build on this as I support the development of your provision and quality assurance processes.
