Face to Face Training at Blue Novation

“I have been on the Intermediate Excel Training today and wanted to feedback that it was great, just what I needed and I wish I had done it 8 years ago!

What I learnt today is going to have a huge impact on my work and will benefit so many aspects of my role. I can thoroughly recommend the trainer, course and venue.”

Abigail Pawsey – Director of Enterprises, Ormiston Families Trust


Face-to-Face Training at Blue Novation

***Update January 2021***

In order to protect our staff, our delegates and the organisations who train with us, we have taken the decision to postpone all face-to-face training courses until at least the second quarter of 2021.

We are now able to offer “live and online” versions of all our courses and delegates can access training from their homes or offices.

Our face to face training will be available as soon as it is safe and possible to do so within the national Covid-19 guidelines. In the meantime, thank you for your understanding and support during this challenging and unprecedented time.

For more information please call us on 0345 1188150 or get in touch via our contact page.
