Winter Driving Tips from Focale Training

Our accredited training provider Focale Training has published some winter driving tips for this year. Take a look to see how you can stay safe this winter:

“There are many different hazards when driving in winter from the change in weather to vehicle maintenance. Here are some helpful tips from one of our trainers…

What are the additional hazards?

  • Weather – ice, snow, rain, wind, fog, low sun, floods.
  • Less daylight – travelling in the dark, defective lighting on other vehicles, poor or no lighting on bicycles, pedestrians in dark clothing (adults and school children).
  • Vehicle electrics under much higher load demands and batteries less efficient to cope with this demand in cold weather.
  • Stopping distances increasing anywhere between 2 and ten times further than they would be in perfect dry conditions.”

Excellence in customer service

Results from an Apprenticeship Certificates England (ACE) customer survey has shown Proskills UK provides an excellent and reliable service. Feedback was taken from the training providers who use Proskills for their apprenticeship certification process.

“The results of the survey […] has helped to establish a gold standard of very good customer service against which other sector areas will be judged.[…]The comments made by training providers also serve to reinforce the very high level of customer service provided by Proskills.”

Results in “speed of response to queries”, “attitude of staff” and “quality of support and advice provided”, were all rated as good or excellent by 100% of respondents. This was on average 25% higher than our competitors.

We are delighted with the survey responses which show a high level of customer service throughout all areas. We aim to provide a consistent and robust certification service. We will not only continue to strive in providing these standards but will aim for even greater levels of customer service.

“All training providers and colleges involved in the delivery of apprenticeships are constantly being urged to improve the skills and education delivery to apprentices, and we feel that that this same quality demand should apply to any supporting services such as our certification services.

”The Proskills certification team work hard to deliver a first class service and this has been reinforced by these survey results. In an ever-changing skills environment it is reassuring for our clients that we deliver our service in a confident, supportive way and to a high standard. I am very proud of our certification team and would encourage those needing high quality certification services to give us a try.”
