Woodspeen Training to exhibit at 100% Optical at ExCeL, London
With over 30 years experience delivering high class apprenticeships to learners across England, Woodspeen Training employs FBDO qualified tutors that are still practicing Dispensing Opticians. This ensures that our apprentices are receiving not just high quality training, but also support to have a deep understanding of the industry they are working in.
With a 100% distinction rate for our optical apprenticeships, businesses can be sure any apprentice recruited through Woodspeen Training will be of the highest calibre.
Woodspeen Training recognises that optical businesses require a range of skills to support growth. Including courses to support leadership and management and offers apprenticeships in those areas which can be used to upskill existing staff, allowing businesses to retain their skills and experience, and create effective succession plans.
Claire Baxendale, operations manager, said “This is our third year of attending 100% Optical, what keeps us coming back is not only does it let us see the new trends in the sector, which we then take back to our apprentices to reinforce their learning.”
“It also allows our tutors to attend the outstanding CPD accredited seminars and workshops to really enhance their knowledge, that then goes on to impact the quality of teaching available at Woodspeen Training.” She continued.
Woodspeen Training will be located on stand W52.
