Broader Horizons For North East Training Provider
The region’s biggest assistive technology training provider has moved into larger premises following a major recruitment drive over the past six months.
e-Quality Learning, which delivers online and onsite training support to individuals with disabilities, has invested over £400,000 its new Hebburn-based home which is three times the size of its previous office space in Newcastle.
Founded in 2010, the company has seen a surge in demand for its market-leading remote training services on a national scale, which primarily benefits students and employees across the UK.
Having spent two successful years in Byker, Newcastle, e-Quality Learning’s staff numbers have rocketed from 10 to 32 with many new additions to its training team.
The company also houses several software training products so the new 8000sq building will also act as a storage and distribution warehouse, allowing for a much more efficient end-to-end service so it can more easily distribute products to end-users.
Chris Quickfall, managing director at e-Quality Learning said: “Over the past two years the company has experienced significant growth and it is a great feeling to be able to provide employment for many people from around the North East and beyond.
“The more people that require our services, the more trainers and developers and space we need. Therefore we are always on the lookout for bright and enthusiastic candidates to help with customer demands.
“As we operate a full equality employment policy, the new space is very accessible with two disabled lifts, wide walkways and accessible toilets; this was a must as around half the people we employ have kind of disability.”
The company’s tailored training service was developed following extensive and on-going research with Northumbria University into how people with varying disabilities process and retain certain information. It is the only organisation in the UK that provides ongoing assistance to support individuals after the initial one-to-one training is complete.
Award-winning e-Quality Learning now has offices based in London, the Midlands and in the North-East. Its specialist assistive technology services are aimed at private corporations and government bodies such as DWP, Access to Work, the NHS as well as universities, colleges and schools that all have learners who would benefit from this style of assistive technology training.
