Quanta’s impact in delivering courses to the MOD continues to grow with courses held weekly at the Worcester Training Centre, opposite the Swan Theatre and also at MOD bases across the UK and Europe

A half-second pause preceded an enormous roar when the Worcester based Quanta Forces Training Team realised they had won the Service Leavers’ Training Company of the Year award for the third year in a row.

The annual awards mark the achievements of armed forces service leavers who have gone on to achieve extraordinary things in their civilian life. Quanta’s part is to ensure these men and women have the necessary skills to make the transition and to support them through the process. Head of the department, Amanda Taylor, took to the stage and gave a heart-felt speech that focused on the core difference that Quanta brings.

She said, “It’s all about making a difference. We work hard with each individual to choose courses and then provide market-leading training that will help them in their civilian life.” Quanta, alongside other local companies such as Jaguar Land Rover and QinetiQ are members of the Corporate Covenant where each business makes a pledge to support members of the armed forces; something Quanta takes very seriously, “There is nothing more rewarding than to see our service leavers get the extra training they need and then go on and secure work.”

Perhaps most well-known within in the Ministry of Defence for offering ‘bundles’, Quanta believes this is a key reason for their year on year wins. Amanda added, “We put several courses together into one bundle to help the service leavers get the most out of their funding. This might be a Project Management course such as PRINCE2® bundled together with APM which brings together the process part of managing projects with the necessary leadership skills to embed processes into organisations. It’s all about putting together the right courses that will meet their personal needs at a rate that will best use their Enhanced Learning Credits. These credits are designed to promote lifelong learning amongst members of the Armed Forces and we’re here to help with the process of using them.”

Quanta’s impact in delivering courses to the MOD continues to grow with courses held weekly at the Worcester Training Centre, opposite the Swan Theatre and also at MOD bases across the UK and Europe.
