Training and Competency Manager,
Manufacturing Company.

WE WANT YOU TO SEE TANGIBLE RESULTS FROM YOUR INVESTMENT WITH US.  WHETHER IT IS A SUPERVISOR WHO NOW MANAGES IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WAY, AN ASSESSOR WHO NOW UNDERSTANDS HIS OR HER RESPONSIBILITIES OR A COMPETENCY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM THAT RESULTS IN A MORE COMPETENT, SAFE AND RELIABLE WORKFORCE.

When you work with us, you can expect to see real behavioural changes in your employees, new systems and processes.  These changes should reduce your exposure to risk, help you improve quality and help you better meet the needs of your clients.   We want you to achieve a more motivated workforce who understand the difference they can make to the success and failure of your organisation.

So we are in a great position to understand what will give our clients the best result for training and development, competence and risk management.

    A learner, SQA L&D9DI Assessor Course Large Marine Company
  • "Polaris Learning were aware that our people were busy all the time and helped our candidates to finish. They are flexible, reasonable in price, a good coaching team and achieve an international standard"

    Assistant Training Manager Arabian Drilling Company, Saudi Arabia
  • "I really appreciate our trainer's effort to understand our needs from the SQA L&D11 award and how they planned and showed flexibility to make this course suit our needs.  The ongoing support through the course from our trainer exceeded my expectations."

    Senior Instructor Petrolift Oil Services, Egypt
  • "Delegates are now better equipped in management and leadership skills.  Importantly self awareness among delegates has improved and self development has strengthened within them also.  Polaris Learning deliver tailored programmes, delivered in a focused and relevant manner and in a style that truly engages the participants."

    Head of Human Resources Aberdeen International Airport, Scotland
  • "The Talent for the Future programme has been a real success with many of the employees being promoted into supervisor roles with other candidates progressing to the next level of the ILM programme. Polaris Learning has worked closely with Baxters to ensure the programme met our business requirements to develop our next generation of supervisors. The energy and drive from both the candidates and the Polaris Learning trainers has been superb!"

    Head of Human Resources – Europe Baxters Food Group, Scotland
  • "The course put me into a totally different understanding of training – definitely for the better!  Was thoroughly explained and easy to understand.  The tutor accommodated everyone’s needs very well and explained everything clearly."

    Supervisor, Train the Trainer Programme Endorsed by the ILM Large Fish Processing Company
  • "Increased knowledge of the staff not only for how they do something but also why they are doing things.  We find the team are bringing issues to our attention rather than management or QA picking them up.  The Polaris Learning consultant has been incredibly helpful on a number of levels - from highlighting production issues, helping with quality and technical issues and also providing solutions."

    Quality Assurance Manager JK Thomson, Scotland
  • "We have delivered a workable competency framework in the North Sea for all offshore positions.  We have started recording progress and can confidently measure where our competency gaps are.  As a start up company with no competency framework in place this has been an invaluable service and has made a worthwhile contribution to our expected success."
