's what we do!

Welcome to Peninsula

Peninsula was established by John and Karen Walker in 2003 and now provides training programmes, learning and development opportunities and qualifications for learners across the whole of the UK. Many of our programmes are provided for local authorities and businesses, but we also support individual learners who wish to further their professional development. We also offer Career Guidance Services to schools and colleges and consultancy support in business development for the sector. We became and ILM Centre last year and can provide management training to L5. We also offer assessor and Internal quality assurance awards across any sector.
We focus on learning and development opportunities for those who work with children, young people, parents, families and adults requiring social care or advocacy support. Many of our programmes link to qualification opportunities and we are an assessment centre for OCR, City and Guilds, ILM and ABC. We have developed a process of closely linking qualification requirements to the taught inputs we deliver, which simplifies the process for learners and clearly shows the link between learning and practice.

What our clients say

"The leadership and management level 5 diploma has been an interesting and useful programme and has supported staff in their roles as managers. Delegates have reported that the sessions are engaging, and that John makes even the driest of material interesting and relevant. Support with assessment is always available and John is very responsive to queries."

"I have commissioned Peninsula to provide not only independent advocacy training NVQ3 but also facilitated workshops to fully understand the impact of the changes in legislation and how we can meet the challenges particularly from the Care Act. The feedback from all, has consistently been outstanding and how much it has been a pleasure to learn with Peninsula support".
