“I'm very pleased to be shortlisted, and proud of what we have achieved within the last year, particularly the opening of our new training facility in Gateshead. I'm looking forward to seeing the industry grow, and to see more people undertake GWO training, hopefully with us! It's exciting to think about how we can improve the training people receive, and the way we as a company are developing our courses within the GWO framework to make them more engaging, realistic, and useful for our participants. Whether that is by developing our practical facilities or trying to make use of new technology such as Augmented Reality.”
