Waterside Training have been our apprenticeship provider for the past 7 years. They are an amazing team who offer great customer service and always go the extra mile. Our apprentices are cared for and well looked after which feels like they are part of our own team and forms a true, trustworthy partnership.

Essity have many colleges under management, and I believe Waterside Training is the strongest on the market. With that said, other colleges should be seeking to work in collaboration with Waterside to improve the UK programmes and be the best they can be!

Any concerns or issues that may arise are always dealt with in a timely, personal and professional manner and events are always enjoyable, well organised and a shining example of how much effort they put into our apprentices and the services they provide.

Best in Class!
