Who we are

Simon Linard Training and Development specialises in training and professional qualifications within teaching, training, assessment and quality assurance. 

I work with teaching and training professionals or people who want to gain relevant, recognised qualifications to enable them to enter the industry or start a new career. I also work alongside training providers and employers who want to develop the professionalism and skills of their staff by investing in the people who work for them.


There are five core values to underpin the work of SL Training and Development:-

  1. Honesty
  2. Support
  3. Commitment
  4. Reputation
  5. Quality

Why work with SL Training and Development?

I specialise in a specific suite of qualifications because I believe in them. I do one thing and do it very well.

The SL Training and Development mission is "to provide great training that makes great teachers, trainers, assessors and quality assurance professionals, who can then go and make a difference to the people they teach".

Some of the main benefits of working with me:-

  1. Flexible training and qualifications based on the needs of individuals and employers
  2. Extensive support from a specialist, experienced trainer and assessor, during and after training
  3. Fully accredited and nationally recognised qualifications leading to professional recognition
  4. Employment opportunities and career options
  5. Increased earning potential for individuals

Customer service is at the forefront of my training. I am proud of the training and support offered to all of our customers, either as individuals or employers, which is why people continue to come back and work with me. Aftercare is very important to me, through a support service I can assist with employment opportunities, continuous professional development, updates and advice.

Our Clients

I work with a wide range of clients, from training providers to individual trainers and companies to individuals wanting to start a new career in teaching or training.:

Have a look at what our clients say about SL Training and Development and why they keep returning.:

"I recently completed my IQA qualification through SL Training and Development after a recommendation from a colleague.

It was important for me to complete the qualification within a timescale that suited me and took into account my work commitments. I found Simon to be very professional, knowledgeable and supportive at all times. Guidance given by Simon was always clear and relevant to my industry sector. He kept me on track throughout with regular contact which included face to face meetings.

Simon was very understanding of my work commitments whilst I was completing my IQA. He was able to offer flexibility with meeting times which was essential for me as I was working full time. I received just the right amount of contact to ensure that I understood what was required of me and to keep me on track without ever feeling that I was being pressured.

I have no hesitation in recommending SL Training and look forward to working with Simon again in the future.
