Computer training suites provide business-class PCs for software and internet-based needs
Internet / software training rooms are well suited for training bespoke applications, online access courses, business software and PC-based exams. Owing to very careful pandemic measures, our maximum room capacities for training events are currently either six attendees plus facilitator (we call this 6 + 1) for our medium sized IT training rooms, or in large sized IT training rooms groups of 8 + 1 maximum. For exam-style these increase to 8 + 1 for medium size and 10 + 1 for large size rooms. (In non-COVID times our large size - over 8m x 8m - rooms could have a maximum capacity of c. 24 +1). Each laptop or desktop we provide is sanitised before any attendees use and has Microsoft Windows and Office. If you are training your own software we are happy to install the programs needed in advance. All PCs are connected through the room's dedicated direct-to-internet connection with strong Wi-Fi or ethernet connection. Before, during and after every hire our experienced and proactive organisational, cleansing and IT support staff are available to ensure your session runs as smoothly as possible.

Although our rooms are typically set up in a classroom or classic U-shape configuration, we aim to be flexible and can often accommodate other format requests.
"Great space. Thanks - awesome service." Todd Madar, Accruent - training NHS staff
Take it easy with our unlimited refreshments
Don't let thirst or hunger distract your attendees - each training room you hire is stocked up with refreshments. From drinks including tea, coffee, water and fruit cordial, to snacks such as mints and biscuits, we ensure you stay topped up throughout the day so you can focus on your training.
Treat yourself with a well earned buffet
Training courses can be hard work, so make sure to stop and reward everyone with our deliciously fresh buffet. This optional lunch comes with a varied selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, crisps, cakes, soft drinks and fruit - all served in your training room. We also alternatively offer vouchers for the in-house café.
Specific dietary requirements can be catered for - just let us know in advance of the day.
