I am very thankful to Centra Training, especially for all their guidance and encouragement throughout my diploma so far. The information they have provided me has been invaluable, especially the PowerPoint presentation.

Adult Care Learner



Centra have been exceptional from the start. From the early conversations as to what they could offer through to the delivery of short courses & RQF enrolments. Dedicated people who build relationships with their customers by going the extra mile. Would highly recommend.

Quality Assurance & Compliance Manager


Centra's acceptance that every learner is different by making adjustments for every individual, whilst at the same time still ensuring that the knowledge and skills is passed onto the trainee, has really made a difference. Once our employees have completed their Diplomas we can visibly see that their confidence has grown and that they have the skills to deliver the high quality care our highly complex residents deserve.

"I have decided to enrol on my Level 5 Diploma with Centra Training, to expand my knowledge in my new job role which I have been doing since January 2023, as a Care Manager at St Jude's Care. This qualification will progress my career, skills and knowledge, and enable me to do my current job role to the best of my ability."

"I just wanted to say how fantastic you've been as my tutor! You're a great lady who has made me feel confident throughout the duration of my diploma. You were friendly and approachable when I felt that I needed extra support. And you've helped me to reach my pass goal on time!"

The Sheiling School


Centra Training is our preferred provider for our Level 2 and 3 Diplomas in Adult Care.  Consistency in relationships, from sales and sign-up, through to assessment and completion of awards, means that we have been able to develop a great working relationship with a clear understanding of our organisation, our working practices and our values.  In turn, this leads to a good learning experience for our staff, and an improved service for the people we support.

"From my first initial contact with Centra, I found them so informative and not pushy at all. I knew straightaway that Centra was the ideal company to sign our care assistants up with to complete their Diplomas. The assistance given has been great. The induction was brilliant with the care assistants, giving plenty of information and going through the process. Our care assistants can't wait to get going! It's great to see their willingness to learn and gain qualifications. More employees to sign up soon; as well as more specialist qualifications."
