Speaking about the NVQ Training programme with GB Training, Baker Goodchild Managing Director Lorraine Burnell stated, “We try our level best to ensure our team are well equipped with both the latest technology and the opportunity to further their education. Many team members do want to study and gain further knowledge about various topics, however it can be hard working full time and then studying part time. 

It is essential to maintain a work life balance and for our team members who want to work and study, we help them by adjusting the hours they work, giving them the time needed to complete assignments. Education is priceless and there is nothing more rewarding than giving a colleague the opportunity to better themselves.”
