Client Testimonials

A trusted partner

Most of our clients have worked with us for over a decade.

Our reputation’s built on providing no-nonsense training programmes that work. We do the hard work, and we get the results, and that’s why people who have taken our courses remember them, and go back to their day-jobs with a different outlook and new skills.

But don’t just take our word for it, have a little look at what our happy customers have to say.

Adalta delivered an extremely professional course that more than exceeded our expectations. Everything from the course literature through to the personable tutors was at an exceptional standard. Already our organisation is benefitting from the team  who attended the course, as collaboration on project work has increased significantly. Tensar would highly recommend the course and Adalta, and look forward to working again with them in the future.

Adalta are very down to earth and flexible regarding our needs and being able to work with the beliefs and values we have as a company. I like how they keep everything fresh, informative and punchy. Their communication is very good and all courses they deliver aretailor-made and tweaked for our specific needs. I have found every course to be thorough, detailed, interestin­­­­g and relevant. The trainer was enthusiastic, REAL, passionate, genuine and fun…..a real believer!

Trevor McCarthy

Adalta were focused on our agenda and needs. As well as professionalism and expertise, there was plenty of fun and laughter along the way and their sense of humour and personal touch helped us all to fully engage with the training. I felt they went the extra mile to understand our requirements and create business-orientated training that was tailored specifically to our people and of a high standard. Adalta deliver value for money and are in it for the long haul. I would always recommend Adalta. They make the journey fun, insightful, empowering, enabling and get the job done so it has real impact on your business and generates a genuine return on investment.

Ivan Finney

Training and Development Manager, ExtraCare Charitable Trust

Adalta work hard to get into our company’s mindset, understanding the sector, the demands, the culture and the significant changes the company is undergoing. All this knowledge is incorporated into the workshops, the materials, the delivery and the interaction with participants. This means the facilitator can immediately engage with participants, quickly gaining their trust and topics are tailored so that our staff can apply learning easily to their workplace. Adalta provide excellent value for money. When you work with Adalta, they don’t just deliver training, they work with you on entire programmes and projects, providing different options and solutions to meet your needs and budget.

 

Agnes McHale

Organisational Development Officer, Greater Manchester Probation Trust

The training programmes that Adalta have provided are specifically written to our specification(s) and are not just “off the shelf” standard products. This is particularly important to us at CFB as we work in a very challenging environment and the needs of our learners are very specific.

Adalta have been very careful to contextualise the content of their products to meet our high and exacting needs. The follow up and support services provided by Adalta have been particularly good both for students on programmes and for my administrative team as , due to the nature of our business, we have had to change plans and programmes at very short notice. In these circumstances Adalta have always demonstrated the flexibility we have required.

Christine Chisolm

Head of Learning & Development, Cleveland Fire Brigade

As a fast growing global company we wanted to make sure we are investing in our people. The team at Adalta really took time to understand our business, our culture and the deliverables I was looking for. They tailored a specific training schedule around it and the execution has been superb. I am delighted to work with Karen and the team and will be using them for years to come.

Bjorn Reynolds

CEO Safeguard World International

Our Advanced Supervisor course offers our supervisory team the opportunity to develop the fundamental skills of first line management. After discussing with Adalta some of the issues that our supervisors faced, along with what we would like them to do differently as a result of the day, Adalta designed the training. It offers our supervisors very relevant learning and provides them with the tools to go straight back to site and put this into practice.

The course has proven very popular with our supervisors and always has 100% attendance. Both the course designers and the trainer at Adalta made sure they fully understood our business need which made our training and development for this role not only much simpler but much more effective.

Jamie McGowan

Training Manager, Revolution Bars Group

I have engaged with Adalta to support various initiatives for a number of years. I find their approach to be truly bespoke and unique, and I know that they invest the time to really understand not only our current needs and requirements, but they also consider the bigger picture and what might be required in the future. Our partnership with Adalta has positively impacted our development journey here at ResponseTap, and has been instrumental in helping us create motivated and engaged employees from staff right through to the senior leadership team. If you are looking for a credible training company who care about creating learning and development interventions that are tailored specifically to your business and your people, then I would have no hesitation in recommending Adalta. I know that I personally will be continuing to work with them ongoing throughout my career.

Rebecca Taylor

Global Head of HR, ResponseTap

Adalta provide unrivalled flexibility and professionalism.  They work fast and smart to understand clients needs and have the ability to drill into the solutions that deliver requirements. I would highly recommend Adalta for any sector as one of the best providers I have worked with.

Louise Roberts

Director of Organisational Development and Orbit Academy, Orbit Group.

“We recognised the necessity for time and man management training. Adalta understood our training demands & needs which would ultimately satisfy our internal and external customer requirements. The Trainer was very well read & assisted with any extra issues raised within the focus sessions.”

Stephen Arrowsmith

Director, Heatcare Limited

Adalta customised a bespoke training course to suit our companies’ requirements which resulted in better productivity throughout the organisation.

Helen Sunderland

Human Resources, Kirk Environmental Ltd.

I have found Adalta to be a truly professional company who have delivered excellent training for our organisation. I have found the staff very easy to work with, effective and incredibly focused on our needs and aspirations as an organisation.

Tola Adesemowo

HR Director, Mosscare Housing Group

For my team and me, the management training we’ve undertaken this year has been some of the most successful I’ve been involved with: the team is moving forward faster and more cohesively, understanding the shared objectives we have, whilst on an individual level they have all had the opportunity to develop new skills and improve their self-awareness.

 

The main thing that stands out for me with Adalta is the time they take understanding your business, your team and the specific objectives you want to achieve through training, before they do anything else. From there, they are able to offer a diverse range of solutions and techniques to give you bespoke training sessions that absolutely deliver.

Melanie Cusick-Jones

Senior Facilities Manager Birchwood Park

Adalta supported us in the roll out of our company’s ‘Business Process Training Strategy’ which aims to achieve consistency across the business in the way we deliver to our clients. Whilst many of our people have the technical knowledge and skills required for our operations, their primary role is not to develop and deliver training to others. Adalta worked with us to make this process easier by providing us with the tools, structure, focus and direction to develop effective training content and delivery methods that are required to achieve engagement of our operational personnel.

John A Sharp

Director of Business Process Development, NG Bailey

Adalta provide a service unlike any other. They provide friendly, flexible and cost effective training programmes for professional staff that really make a difference. Adalta staff have always been willing to listen to deliver relevant and work based training programmes to Mossbank Homes. Training is delivered to meet your needs as a client.

The training programmes that Mossbank wanted were more work based, and linked to newly created job roles. Training was split into several sessions over the course of 12 weeks, during which time staff could practice newly acquired skills in the work environment.

Over the course of the training programme, staff were able to feedback to Adalta the outcomes of their training and adjust techniques and skills accordingly to improve performance in the workplace. I believe the reason this worked so well is that the Adalta trainers really wanted to see staff be successful and to see them develop. Their training programmes definitely produced results for us at Mossbank Homes, and this is because of the unique nature of the training and the quality of the trainers.

Andy Gay

Mossbank Manager, Mosscare Housing Group

I have recently completed my Level 6 Leadership and Management course with Adalta. My supervisor, Dave Rees, was incredibly supportive and helped me to break down each module into manageable chunks to complete within realistic timescales alongside my other work commitments. Dave offered suggestions and constructive feedback which helped focus my work and resulted in my successfully completing the distance learning course within six months of starting the programme”

Suzanne Vincent

Manchester City Council

We’ve found Adalta to be a highly professional and responsive organisation. They align everything they do to meet our needs and expectations to ensure that what they deliver makes a difference.

Richard Fearnside

Head of HR, Powell Industries

Adalta worked with us to develop and implement a large scale bespoke team management programme which delivered tangible results for our business. What helped achieve this success was Adalta’s ability to really understand our business and identify exactly what was needed. They managed the whole process, from start to finish and made it easy for us. They understood our business so well, it was like they worked for us.  The facilitators were fantastic in that they could handle any situation that arose in the training room and seemed to really motivate the team

Claire O'Neill

Training Manager, Wincanton/ Somerfield

We have worked very closely with Adalta on a recent exercise to improve our communication and consultation with our workforce.  Their support was invaluable in making significant progress towards our aims.

Mike Khanna

Plant Director, Stadco Powys

Adalta offered the perfect solution to our learning need. We needed a focus on individual style and learning that would allow for a coaching approach rather than a ‘classroom’ learning event. The result was that we were able to benefit from the learning on an ongoing basis throughout the programme. For me the programme gave a more defined and structured approach to leadership for the delegate.

Dave Bevan

Head of Training, Accident Exchange Limited

What stands out about Adalta for me is the learning objectives are clearly explained and assessed. When you finish a programme, you can do things that you could not have done before.
