Barleycroft Care Home

“I am the main contact with AP4U and we quickly developed a good working relationship. They provided me with plenty of information and assurances, especially as we had some unfortunate experiences with other training providers in the past. However, AP4U has been extremely helpful in answering any queries. The process of singing up staff for training has always been easy and the assessors have been very supportive to the staff for the duration of the course. We have been extremely impressed with the service provided.”
