The staff were so unbelievably accommodating, giving us their time and support, making sure we had exactly what we needed and making available all that we required...There is no doubt in our minds that G7 was the success that it was, in part thanks to the support and commitment by the team at the Future Skills Centre. Their willingness to support us and accommodate us at a time of critical planning helped in the delivery of a safe and successful event and is something we will always be grateful for.

The whole team were excellent - not just beforehand with customer service/communications and prep but also really well organised on the actual day. Would definitely recommend to others.

Georgia has been very attentive and professional at all stages with our booking and has replied immediately to my queries on email. Luke and Fran were also very helpful. Thank you!

Recent Customer

I cannot say how much the kind of flexibility provided by the Future Skills Centre means to us as an organisation. With the critical nature of training, a cancellation has a massive impact on our ability to be able to serve our communities. Without doubt, the short notice assistance provided by the Future Skills Centre team played a vital part in ensuring we could deliver policing. Thank you very much for assisting us and for the flexibility shown.
