Didac has established a reputation for delivering quality training that is second-to-none. Many of our courses are monitored by external organisations, including Awarding Bodies (including, City & Guilds, EDI, ILM and PIABC), Skills Funding Agency, Matrix and Ofsted.
An important step forward came in August 1998, when the company became an approved Provider for Apprenticeships. Since that day, Didac is now at the pinnacle of training provision within the furniture, wood and merchanting sectors, with funding flexibities, opportunities and accreditations.
Initially providing services to CNC machine users, Didac has expanded to offer a wide range of training and consultancy services and pride themselves on keeping abreast of the latest requirements and opportunities presented in the world of learning.
Their roots within this sector run deep. Jon Gibson, Didac’s Managing Director, was himself an apprentice working within the industry, before becoming a lecturer at Brunel College in Bristol from 1989-1995. Technical Director Colin Jones is also very experienced in the industry. He was also an apprentice before lecturing. Commercial Director Martin James was an undergraduate trainee with G Plan Furniture becoming a Chartered Engineer, before moving into CNC router machine manufacture.
Didac draws on an experienced team of trainers and assessors who are experts in all areas of delivery, all who have worked in industry as part of their working life.
Didac enjoy close working relationships with all the major industry and regulatory bodies, including a large number of trade associations, machine and tooling manufacturers and the HSE.
In 2012, Didac we inspected by Ofsted who judged them as an outstanding, grade 1 provider.
