Customer Feedback

“The Regional Training Agency seeks to provide relevant, practical and professional high quality training for support staff in schools.  Working in association with GCS Training has meant we’ve been able to offer hands-on training in the workshop, for site staff wishing to improve their practical skills.  The facilities and training were excellent, and received outstanding evaluations from our delegates.  We’re thrilled with the result and look forward to working with GCS Training at Gower College Swansea again in the future. ”
