Just a brief on another excellent day at the Peterlee SWE. This is by far the best training facility I have ever seen. The value of the hands on training was very high for all the trainees from the 2 Vice presidents to the trainee Lean Lean practitioners. We now have plans to send all our front line leaders through as standard at one of our sites, some of our european sites are also looking to send people to the UK to attend this excellent training. Thanks for a great day again!

We have completed a management feedback session regarding our BIT level 2 and 3 courses that we ran from Aintree. The Senior management spoke to all the candidates who took the course and everyone agreed what a massive help the SWE had been. They said that all the techniques they had picked up at the Centre had been invaluable. If you look at our department now to what is was, in terms of organisation, it is a totally different environment to what we were used to regarding Workplace Organisation etc., and it has also been commented by the Senior team.
So once again a big thank you from all the Candidates and to the Team Leaders who were very professional in their jobs.

I thought the SWE day was fantastic. As I said yesterday. I have been studying this stuff for 3-4 years now and I thought the training was the best I have ever seen!

The structure of the whole day was to a very high standard and our group was impressed by the staff of Infinite Learning and Development in the way the day was presented.
Would you please pass on to your senior management our grateful thanks for all the help and guidance that Infinite Learning and Development has provided to us at Siemens.

ILD have been extremely proficient from the on-set of our training requirement.

They fully understood our skills gap and were engaged in matching course selection to meet the business need.

We have 2 employees completing Level 3 BIT (Business Improvement Techniques) and ILM Level 3 (Team Leading/Management). The training, support, help and guidance have been very professional. The tutor is exceptionally experienced, enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and has an excellent working relationship with the NOC Ltd employees. The training is well balanced between theory and shop-floor practical engagement, and we have made excellent impact on bottom-line processes and procedures. The NOC Ltd employees already have sufficient knowledge to see and identify waste and know what changes are required. Initial projects with BIT have changed cell set-up and tooling requirements and further identified a saving of upwards of £20,000 in material costs.

As the BIT course progresses and knowledge and engagement increases, future savings under the guidance of the tutor will certainly emerge. The ILM level 3 will also help with people engagement and team leadership.

From management, admin and course delivery via the tutor, I’ve been very impressed with the competence and expertise of all staff. Exceptionally professional throughout and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending ILD for training requirements.

Just a short note to say how well the SWE session today was facilitated by you and your team. The facilities and CPS are world-class. The preparation, planning and facilitation by you and your team was excellent.

Over the past three years of working with Keith and his staff at ILD, Newcastle University has been able to build up a fantastic working relationship.  The welding and SWE training provided is a perfect balance of theoretical background material and hands on practical work, delivered by experts in the field. The entire cohort of our first year mechanical engineering undergraduates benefits from this training, enabling them to gain some valuable practical experience while supporting the academic degree material they study. For each group which completes this training, the students come back to the University with a sense of appreciation of the industrial relevance of the skills they have been exposed to, along with a universal enjoyment of the time they spend at ILD.

I just wanted to take a chance to say thank you for the SWE yesterday.

It was really interesting to see the processes involved and the improvements that can be made in such a short space of time.

All of your team really made the day go smoothly and I think they got the responses from the teams that were needed to make the day a great success. I’ve had a lot of the people who attended yesterday say that they were really surprised at how much they enjoyed it and how much they learnt from it.
