HISTORY

ACTIVIA TRAINING OUR HISTORY

Knowledge and expertise built over time

From small beginnings to a UK leader

Few success stories happen overnight, and the most durable take time.   Activia Training is no exception, with a long history of delivering high quality courses, of increasing services and developing quality-based infrastructure to put us in the position we are today: a major provider of training to businesses all over the UK.

The Activia training centre in Slough

Early Years

We were formed in 1995 to deliver high-quality Microsoft Office training solutions to the business and personal sectors, and soon added Sage software training to our portfolio, becoming preferred suppliers for desktop IT applications training to an increasing number of companies as we strengthened our position in the business training market.

Competitiveness is Key

The training market is highly competitive, but it is important that you select the right provider because what may appear to be a standard course will often be delivered in completely different ways. Our approach is to provide a highly competitive price structure, without compromising the high quality standards we have established over the years. &nbap; Needless to say, this produces continual strong growth in our sales and our client base.

Moving On...

In 2003, we moved into the flagship Regus Business Centre in Slough, concentrating entirely on the business and public sector markets, adding Lotus training to our IT portfolio, and bespoke Business Skills courses to our overall range. Our levels of activity have increased considerably ever since, as we have delivered training to the Ministry of Defence, schools, colleges, local councils and hospitals as well as a growing number of businesses of all sizes.

Quality Accreditations

We also back up our quality statements with the universal standard of ISO901 (held continuously since 2004).   This requires annual audits and demonstrable improvements in customer service procedures. To back up our growing Business and Management Skills activity, we introduced a range of ILM-endorsed training programmes in 2008 to further reinforce our commitment to delivery of training at the highest standards.

More Courses

We are continually extending our range of courses, now offering a wide choice that covers almost every area of desktop software and business-related job and management skills.   IT applications training now includes courses for Microsoft, Sage, Adobe and Crystal Reports, and our Business Skills courses now cover a wide and increasing range of options under Employee Skills, HR, Supervision, Sales and Management training.

More Centres, Lower Prices

From early days, our service levels created a demand far beyond our local area, and in 2007 we opened our second centre in Aylesbury.   Further openings have continued in London (where we now have five centres), Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire so that we now have ten full-time centres, serving a huge client base and enabling our larger volumes to create even more competitive prices.

Continuing Growth

We are continuing to grow our team, our range of courses, our centres and our client base -- so you can be sure you are dealing with a positive and established company when you arrange your training with Activia.

Success Based on Service

Activia's continued success is the result of making sure that client needs are fully addressed, both before and during the training : our post-course assessments show that almost every delegate scores us as "either "very good" or "excellent" on all criteria, and our retention rate for clients is virtually 100%.
