What our customers say?

"2 courses completed with BV Associates, very professional company that delivers a great standard of training. I have had the joy of Nik Taylor as an instructor on both courses and his training style and delivery of the subject matter is second to non. Thank you all at BV Associates for everything you have done to help me gain these qualifications and I am happy to recommend you to anyone."

"We’ve just finished a week of Mental Health training with BV Associates Ltd who trained 80 of our staff over 4 sessions. They never fail to deliver exceptional training regardless of the subject. I will admit I was nervous putting myself on the course with 79 of my own staff but BVA gave me an overview when we booked the training and sent their trainer to explain what the course involved (at no extra cost I should add). Feedback from those who attended and on returning to work states that they felt that there was an immediate culture change. My managers reported that they felt armed with the information to, above anything else, listen - they understand that we are merely supporting and signposting - not asking them to be qualified counsellors. We had jumped on board after speaking to other companies who had spearheaded the qualification who can all show a demonstrable increase in productivity, a happier workforce and a desire to want to go to work (even the management team!). We look forward to our own results as we continue to grow as a business, together. Sceptical at first, I now realise it’s not soft skills - it is merely putting the needs of your most important asset first whilst understanding that everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses working towards the same collective outcome."
