"Fantastically engaging style of design and delivery that makes people actually want to go to training and then to apply what they've learned back in the business"
Learning and Development Manager - Business Services Company
"University College London Union has been using Up Skill 4 Life for 5 years. We keep on coming back for the consistently high quality, with 93% of our students rating the sessions as good or excellent. Our students keep on coming back to the sessions and regularly demand more sessions when they can't get through the door! Most importantly we use Up Skill 4 Life because it helps students improve their soft skills so they can find good quality employment after they leave University. And of course, Up Skill 4 Life is also excellent value for money when compared to other training providers."
Skills4Work Manager - University College London Union
"Working with Up Skill 4 Life is always a positive experience and great value for time and resources. From the demand and design stages of a training programme, through to the execution and delivery, I've always found Up Skill 4 Life to be highly knowledgeable, highly stimulating and highly credible. Delegates expressed being engaged, energised and felt prepared for their upcoming work as a result of the training they received. Always looking forward to the next sessions to be delivered by Up Skill 4 Life. I highly recommend using Up Skill 4 Life."
Development Manager - Not-For-Profit Organisation
"What I like most about working with Up Skill 4 Life is that they genuinely want to design a programme that's uniquely tailored to our actual needs. Far too often 'bespoke' means taking something already designed and putting a new logo on it. With Up Skill 4 Life they take the time to ask questions, to listen and to respond to feedback in order to create the perfect programme."
Learning and Development Manager - World Leading Consumer Insights Company
"I have worked closely with Up Skill 4 Life over the last 4 years and can highly recommend them for student officer training. Ensuring that officers receive the best possible training plays an essential part in determining the success they will achieve in their new roles and Up Skill 4 Life fully understands the intricacies and anomalies of the elected officer role. They are exceptionally skilled in developing and delivering sessions which prepare officers for being Trustees of a Students' Union. Building a strong, cohesive and effective team is essential training for our officers and Up Skill 4 Life deliver sessions that are specific to the group and their individual strengths and areas of development. I would have no hesitation in recommending Up Skill 4 Life for officer training and development and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future."
Director of Engagement and Development - Students' Union
"More like a training partner than a training provider. Up Skill 4 Life genuinely care about the success of our business and work closely with us to support that success"
Learning and Development Manager - Top 100 Best Company (Mid Companies)
"One to one coaching and mentoring with Jonathan (Up Skill 4 Life Director) was very inspiring. From the very start he helped clarify my goals and objectives, and then structured sessions to bridge my knowledge gaps and got me thinking and breathing strategy. This was a major shift away from my habitual operations mindset. The confidence, focus and drive I developed in a short space of time exceeded expectations and is testament to Jonathan's ability to understand a client's needs and articulate and design a tailored programme. I left every session feeling excited, empowered and eager to continue with my plans"
"I had the pleasure in participating in several workshops delivered by Up Skill 4 Life, including 'The Art of Networking' and 'Project management'. I acquired skills and knowledge that changed my perception on many things and had a positive impact on my personality. I was able to improve my leadership and communication skills to find a job in a big consultancy company. The most amazing part of Up Skill 4 Life workshops is the way they approach delivery of the information. They involve all the participants and help them find a solution themselves rather then just lecturing them. I admire their style of gently facilitating the session - the trainers are always ready to help if you are stuck and point you in the right direction."
Graduate Employability Skills Delegate - Russell Group University
"Refreshing and insightful is the way I would describe Up Skill 4 Life's training design and delivery. The business was recommended to me by a colleague in our sister company when we were looking for an external consultant to run a 'Train the Trainer' programme. Since then, Up Skill 4 Life have designed and delivered a variety of modules for us on a range of personal effectiveness skills. The feedback from delegates is consistently positive with our employees taking away practical solutions that they can implement straight away. I love the fact that Up Skill 4 Life never use PowerPoint, relying instead on an approach that engages the delegates in a thought provoking way to challenge their thinking and inspire action."
