Corndel have worked as genuine partners with Phoenix right from the start. The feedback from the participants is overwhelmingly positive, with people valuing the quality and experience of Corndel’s tutors, the learning materials, and experience they are having and the support they are getting — it is making a real impact and building managers’ confidence, skills and ability.

Tamer HughesHead of Talent Development, Phoenix Group

I am very impressed by Corndel. The flexibility of their delivery model is a great benefit to a complex organisation with a variety of businesses, roles and work patterns. They have reviewed their approach to meet our changing requirements on several occasions and have provided excellent advice on ways to utilise the apprenticeship levy. Their willingness to work with our people at all levels, from senior leaders to first line managers, has added a consistent approach and quality to capability development.”
