Neil is touring BPEC’s main UK training partners to share recent developments and discuss mutual plans for solidifying training and assessment relationships.

As a leading construction training and assessment organisation, Able Skills deliver a variety of BPEC gas qualifications, assessments and training courses, including the Gas Managed Learning Programme (MLP) and Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS).

“It was fantastic to meet the Able Skills team and spend time at their very busy and well-run training centre,” said Neil. “I was particularly impressed with the workshop facilities and feel proud of the fact that over the years we have developed such a close working relationship.”

“It was great hosting BPEC at our centre and hear their amazing feedback on what we’ve been doing,” stated Angela Wright, Centre Manager and Director. “We’re pleased that Neil took the time to make a personal visit and delighted that he was so impressed with our facilities.”

At Able Skills, we collaborate with local businesses in the industry, and Neil also met Jon Dansey from Boiler Medic. Jon is able to offer work experience to students, while also running his own plumbing and heating business.

As part of its ongoing improvement programme, BPEC works closely with its accredited centres to enhance the quality of its services and is delighted that Able Skills has agreed to take part in the latest Gas ACS assessments review.

Angela continued, “We’re proud to work with an organisation as well-respected as BPEC. We’ve built a strong partnership over the years and are delighted to be working closely with them on enhancing ACS assessments.”

Neil Collishaw concluded, “Able Skills is a shining example of our joint mantra ‘no compromises on quality’.”
