Clinton Training Ltd Clinton Training Ltd is an established training centre of many years delivering a wide range of training courses in various subjects and qualification levels. We caught up with UK Operations Manager Leigh Wright to find out more. Clinton Training delivers a wide range of vocational and bespoke training courses in various subjects and qualification levels, as well as offering a consultancy service. Leigh, who draws on experience at senior level in the finance industry and operations market, discusses the business in greater detail and outlines his role in its success. “Clinton Training is in its sixth year of trading and was created by our Managing Director Stephen Houghland, our clients range from corporate, commercial and public authorities and leisure industry and private learners. We receive a lot of repeat business from all sectors due to the students enjoying our learning approach and we also receive a lot of recommendations from learners who have previously been on courses which is always great satisfaction that a learner has enjoyed their course so much that they recommend us to others. “Personally, I work very closely with our Managing Director to ensure our ongoing business strategy is achieved and maintained, this is researching the market to ensure we deliver a wide variety of training courses which our clients and learners require. We also have our qualification endorsed by an awarding organisation which is the Physical Intervention Level 3 trainer’s award which is required by trainers who teach the physical intervention elements of the SIA Door Supervision and Upskilling and the proposed physical intervention in the Close Protection qualification, we are listed on the SIA website for all the SIA approved training courses and also for the Physical Intervention Level 3 trainers qualification category where there is not many training centres offering this qualification in the UK.”

“Competition from funded courses has always been a challenge in the education industry, at Clinton Training we do not see this as an issue as we keep ahead of the market by offering affordable training courses...” Within the training and consultancy market, there have been many changes over recent years; currently many training centres depend on funding streams in order to operate, funding streams can dry up and with current cut backs with funding it is proving more difficult for training centres who rely on funding to gain new

business or meet funding targets in order to continue to maintain growth in this challenging market. Clinton Training does not depend on funding and have grown as a result of quality training and a wide range of training courses which it offers, as Leigh emphasises. “Competition from funded courses has always been a challenge in the education industry, at Clinton Training we do not see this as an issue as we keep ahead of the market by offering affordable training courses with a wide variety of subjects and qualification levels, as we are not restricted by certain funding restriction, course offered, prior education, employment etc., we can offer all our training courses to everyone making Clinton Training stand out from the crowd.” In his concluding comments Leigh discusses the firm’s future plans and how it intends to build upon its current success. “Looking ahead, Clinton Training has many invigorating plans for the future; we are looking to expand in more areas and also offer more training qualifications and also develop training courses to be endorsed. This is an exciting time for Clinton Training with changes to the education sector and cuts in funding streams helps private training companies like Clinton Training have more available opportunities to offer a wide range of training courses at affordable prices to everyone.”
