We have been using Eastern Training Alliance since it started. It has always provided us with a cost-effective, comprehensive schedule of training for all of our staff across the arable, livestock, maintenance, business park, AD and office departments. They keep abreast of industry requirements which, as we know have kept changing, and through our annual meeting, we have been able to discuss the timings of our programme so that it can fit in with our business needs.

We at J S Wright and Sons Limited have been members of Eastern Training Alliance for as long as I can remember. The communication is always efficient and the courses offered are first class with excellent trainers. You can stipulate if you want a certain trainer for a certain course if you find one that understands the way you work better than others, If a course is not offered you are given a guiding hand as to where you might find something suitable. We do not go anywhere else for any of our training unless Eastern training Alliance don’t offer it
