"I recently completed a level 2 apprenticeship programme and found that all the staff at Venus helped to make it an enjoyable and easy process. The short courses that were included as part of the programme were fantastic and my assessor was very encouraging and kept me motivated throughout with clear instruction and constructive feedback."
"I was absolutely ecstatic to receive my L2 qualification. My tutor (Bev Law) has been so encouraging with me, her help and guidance gave me the confidence to persevere with some modules which I struggled with.

The staff at Venus are al (...)

The story so far
In 2006 Venus was formed by Directors frustrated with inadequate training for the care sector.
The team has since grown and each new member brings fresh innovative ideas. However, everyone shares some qualities; experience and passion.
We are confident in the expertise of our team and always happy to provide a biog of our trainers and consultants on request – remember you are responsible for the quality of your training; commission wisely.
We are based in beautiful Devon (who can blame us?) and we deliver nationally. We like to think that makes us the organic, free range, grass fed option for training and consultancy.
