about sl training and development

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 found the Level 4 Understanding EQA Principles and Practices course to be suited to my needs as a short blended learning programme. I completed the course with support from Simon, as and when I needed it, the feedback given was fair and encouraging whilst ensuring that I was aware of exactly what I needed to do to meet the Unit requirements. The course has allowed me to explore EQA principles and practices and consolidated my existing knowledge.

I was pleased that my work was included in the EQA activity and that such positive feedback was given. All in all this has been a worthwhile programme and I have benefited from the CPD it has given me.

I would recommend this course to any IQA that wishes to expand their knowledge base.
