Benjamin Franklin once wrote, 'Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn'.  At Fast Forward, we wholeheartedly agree.

Fast Forward Training and Development is part of New College Swindon.  We provide outstanding professional qualifications, tailored training solutions, work place learning and apprenticeships.  With a passion for good customer service, practical and realistic advice and great training, we like to think we have your goals in mind. 

Professional Qualifications

Our wide range of professional qualifications and workshops are designed to help people become more effective at work - now or in a future career.  Our courses not only increase knowledge and skill level, they also help to develop confidence, resilience, creativity and drive.

Work based learning

Our NVQs are not just a tick list, they’re a great way to reinforce and improve current skills, knowledge and learn industry best practice.  Those who complete an NVQ through us can feel assured they are in safe hands. Our highly respected assessors are experts in their fields, with current industry experience.  Lots of training is also provided in the work place to create a truly flexible and convenient way of learning.

Apprenticeships

If you’re thinking about employing an apprentice, Fast Forward can definitely help.  From carefully planning the qualification delivery to suit your business, attracting and recruiting candidates and of course delivery of the apprenticeship, Fast Forward will provide you with all the help and support you need.  Employing an apprentice is a really cost effective way of recruiting new staff for your business, you may even be eligible for a Government grant worth £1,500!

Business Compliance Training

As a business it is important to ensure you are complying with current legislation.  We can help your business to do this by delivering First Aid, Health & Safety, Manual Handling or Food Safety training and certification to your staff.  We can deliver this training at our top class facilities in New College, or at your convenience on your premises.  

Funding

We have many funding options available to help you reach your training and growth goals.  We can help you identify fully funded qualifications, or interest free instalment plans.  We can also administer the government’s 24+ Advanced Learning Loan, which can be used on many professional level 3 and 4 qualifications.  You will not need a credit check to gain this loan, the loan will be paid back through your employer’s payroll and you will not start paying anything back until you are earning over £21,000 per year. 

The qualification you have been wanting to take but couldn’t afford, could be closer than you think!

All of our qualifications and courses are available to be delivered to your staff in-house at your premises.  Contact us today and ask us how we can help you achieve your training goals.
