After 5 years at Tapton Park Innovation Centre, we have moved a few miles south to take an office in The Hub. The new larger office can accommodate visiting tutors and staff, and there are on-site meeting and training rooms too.
Our new address is: The Hub at Gladstone Buildings, Broadleys, Clay Cross, Chesterfield S45 9JN.

A Busy Summer... ICE Mock Reviews and Mentoring
Two thousand miles of travel across the UK later, from Aberdeen to London, and Manchester to Cambridge, we are finally settling back down after a very busy summer.
We have had the pleasure of undertaking numerous mock interviews for candidates sitting their ICE Professional Review in the Autumn 2017 or Spring 2018 sessions. In total, we worked with 14 candidates and we wish all of them the very best of luck.
We also continued to mentor our graduates and assist them to develop their professional skills through supportively questioning them as they discussed their work and explored their learning. As usual, it was a pleasure working with them and they all rose to the challenge.
If you are in need of mentoring, or need a mentor for your staff, then please contact Andy Goodwin on 01246 807808 or email him at the address below. Andy will happily talk you through what we could do for you to add value to your existing arrangements and processes, without any obligation.
