Employer Testimonials

“Steadfast have been exceptional to work with. Their efficiency and commitment to finding the right candidate for our business was demonstrative of the care and service level they've consistently provided us and the candidate.”

“Steadfast training have given us excellent service and support for several years now. I have worked with many companies in the past and non-compare to the professionalism that I have experiences with Steadfast. Our staff feel supported and relaxed with their assessors and really feel they have achieved something worthwhile at the end. If I have had any problems or queries at all, a quick phone call sorts it out and Joseph who completes the sign ups is always polite, friendly and professional.
I would recommend steadfast training to everyone.”

Thera Trust and its subsidiary companies have been working in partnership with Steadfast training for over five years now and we are totally satisfied with the service we have and continue to receive. Steadfast have enrolled and supported over 600 staff during this time at varying levels from level 2 in H&SC, Team leading and Business Admin to level 5 in leadership and management.

Since the introduction of the levy in May 2017 Steadfast have continued to be supportive and guide us through the apprenticeship reforms and the benefits these have for our Companies.

Applications are processed quickly and professionally with regular feedback always being timely and accurate. Regular meetings are held with Steadfast and ourselves so communication is open, consistent and up to date. Any issues or concerns have been dealt with efficiently and solutions found maintaining transparency throughout.

All employees that have enrolled with Steadfast have enjoyed their learning journey and praised their assessors for their help, guidance and support. Many of our leaners have requested to continue their learning journey and enrol on additional training offered by Steadfast.

I cannot fault the level of service received and look forward to our ongoing relationship and partnership working.

Learner Success Stories

Demi started an IT apprenticeship with Drive by Websites in 2013 and shortly become South Holland Apprentice of the year.

Christine of Drive By Designs says “it’s quite refreshing to have young people in the office and to hear young people’s ideas. From day one Demi was making money for the company because of the design work”.

Drive By Websites director Christine says “If companies are thinking of having an apprentice I would say it is a very good idea. It has worked very well for us”

Drive By Websites appeared in ‘Spalding Guardian’ with a full page story about their apprentices from Steadfast Training Ltd, which was very well received.

Jessica was a very competent worker and keen to gain a qualification and further her career in Health and Social Care. Jessica overcame many bumps throughout her qualification and was supported through her course unit by unit as her assessor knew she was more than capable of doing it. Jessica completed her level 3 Health & Social Care and has now applied to do her nurse training at Sheffield University.

George Runnels was doing a Level 2 Business Administration Apprenticeship at 16 and worked as an IT assistant in a school and loved his job but was extremely shy and anxious. He really opened up throughout the award explaining he was very nervous about doing the award but was enjoying it and felt more relaxed now. George has now finished his apprenticeship and has been offered a full time job, at the school.

Benn was referred to Steadfast Training as part of our Work Well Suffolk project in conjunction with Suffolk County Council.

On referral, Benn had several barriers to starting work including his struggle with mental health, which, although on medication was making him feel inadequate as a provider for his family.  He needed help and support to gain employment.

Steadfast supported Benn to create a CV which reflected his skills and experience. Subsequently, we supported his online job search utilising various job sites - refining his profile, uploading his CV, cover letter, and setting up effective job alerts.  Before our help, Benn had become increasingly frustrated with being sent alerts to jobs that were beyond his skills and experience or in the wrong location, but by refining all of these things immediately he was alerted to jobs he could apply for.

After uploading to one particular site, Benn immediately received a call from an employment agency and was offered multi drop delivery work.  Subsequently he has now found permanent work.

Benn commented – “I have found employment that allows me to feel valued and productive”.

Steadfast Training continue to support Benn as part of the Work Well Suffolk project.
