Valkyrie Support Services

Industry Approved Provider: Food Operations Continuous Improvement

Valkyrie Support Services Ltd is a training and consultancy provider specialising in Apprenticeships for the Engineering and Manufacturing sectors.  Incorporated in 2005, our Company has traded on the basis of its core values and mission statement – ““To stand together as partners alongside our learners and employers in order to develop workforce skills, ultimately, to achieve future personal and business goals.  Stand together and we shall have success”.

We have been involved in the delivery of Apprenticeships since 2010 and entered the ESFA Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers at its inception in 2016.  Most of our business comes from customers who have enjoyed our services for many years with some having a history with us which dates over a decade or longer.  This retention of custom is a testimony to the strength and quality of our approach – people continue to value and utilise our services.

Our common approach to any new customer organisation is to invest time from the outset to discuss and listen carefully to your needs and to focus our attention on building a solution which truly meets them.  We have invested heavily in developing a team of professional tutors who are strong enough in their capabilities to offer real flexibility and a great breadth of skills and knowledge in their sectors – and of course to be able to deliver a different Apprenticeship programme at every location in which they work.
