why choose us?

Gold Edge Training from its launch in 2012, has specialised in achieving the optimum learner experience.

Our teachers’ bespoke approach to teaching the individual and not the group plus our revolutionary programme development have focused attention on combining a range of resources that deliver stress free, flexible learning.

This has proven, as you can see above by our results, to deliver optimum levels of student passes.

We believe every learner has a right, once enrolled, to enjoy their study, pass their exams and follow their career dream. Our videos below will explain more.

our course design

Gold Edge Training courses are designed with a focus on bespoke teaching for the individual. All of our programmes are gold quality with top level resources included as standard. The difference in our course pricing is purely down to the type and cost of the resources included.

Our course range is built to recognise that different learning styles, need different resources and we believe, all programmes should be flexible enough for all learner requirements to be met.

not sure?

‘Success by Design’ is a recognition that all learners are different. Each learner will require a certain blend of resources, different levels of support and varying degrees of flexibility.

For Gold Edge Training to successfully deliver such bespoke learning, it was necessary for us to offer a wide choice of course options. The wide choice, can however, for some students just mean study confusion.

If your thoughts are:

"Yes, but what is my learning style?" or
"How do you start to choose the right course?"

You have reached that perfect time to talk to a teacher.
