by providing FREE training and employment opportunities to youngsters and adults by working with
a range of organisations such as:

with employers to provide comprehensive and tailor made training solutions to up-skill workforces, in turn, increasing
productivity and profitability providing companies with a competitive edge over their rivals.
We go through a rigorous assessment procedure for our staff and courses to ensure you receive the best training
possible. We are regulated and inspected by Edexcel, 1st4sport, City & Guilds, the British Horse Society, Ofsted
and our partners.
Most of our staff are External Verifiers, Examiners and Moderators. This means that they
go out and inspect other training providers, schools and colleges to ensure that they are delivering an excellent standard
of delivery and assessment. Therefore, you can be sure that our quality standards are superlative.
and learners also agree, and in July 2012 we were nominated us for a Chase Business Award. With fierce competition from over
90 other companies, we were delighted and honoured to bring home an award for 'People Development'.

and beyond. To recognise our dedication to promoting sports participation and voluntary work, we received a special thank

1st2 Achieve support the charity Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA).
To support the RDA more effectively, we created an Equine department. All equine staff are actively and regularly involved with the RDA either as riding instructors or volunteers.
We regulary help out on the RDA stand at national equine events such as Horse of the Year Show, and assist with demonstrations
at events such as Blenheim Horse Trials. We also; fund-raise, help to run the RDA National Championships, actively promote
the RDA through word of mouth, and encourage our learners to volunteer at their local RDA group. We have been the driving
force for the creation of two new RDA groups in the Midlands.
In addition, we are
proud to support three disabled riders who are promising Paralympic riders: Lydia Aucott
aged 14 and her horse Milo, from the Tetenhall
RDA group (Wolverhampton). Ruth MacCarthy,
an award winning dressage rider who has been selected for the WORLD CLASS squad with her horse Conquestadore, also from the Tetenhall
group. From the Stafford RDA group Olivia Wilson, aged 14 and her horse Blu.
If anyone would like to help these exceptional riders,
please contact Georgia on 07790196247. We are always looking for sponsors and are currently in need of a horse box.
