Welcome to Alan Hester Associates Limited

Our vision and values

We are here to provide high quality training that makes a difference in the lives and careers of our learners. We can work with you to enhance your organisation’s leadership and management skills at all levels, and on related topics such as coaching and mentoring.

Training is interactive and practical, with plenty of opportunity for learners to share and address their own experiences, interests and reasons for learning. We pride ourselves on giving you the tools and techniques to take charge of your own career and be the best version of you. Oh, and we want you to enjoy it too!

What we offer

Alan Hester Associates offer apprenticeships, bespoke training and coaching for all levels of leadership. We are accredited by ILM, City & Guilds, NOCN and are an endorsed provider for Skills4Care. We are based in the South East and can offer training nationwide with the ability to deliver high quality learning in person, or via a range of online platforms for a blended approach.

We are a registered provider on the ESFA’s Register of Approved Training Providers and were rated Good across the board by Ofsted in November. You can take advantage of our apprenticeship training whether you are a levy paying organisation or a smaller enterprise and we work successfully with public, private and community sector employers.

Due to our range of accreditations, we also offer ILM Certificate and Diploma qualifications in Team Leading, Management, Mentoring and Coaching, Train the Trainer, Business Administration, Customer Service and Health & Social Care up to Level 5 (registered manager).

What people say…

Learner feedback

“A lot of thought has gone into ensuring we get the most out of the training and it supports
us in our development. It’s also been extremely helpful as I’ve transitioned into a new
management role. There is no comparison to my previous apprenticeship provider”
Level 5 leadership participant

Employer feedback

Working with Alan has without doubt strengthened our learning and development offering to our staff. Alan is more than a training provider; he is a colleague. As stated above, since working with Alan I have moved organisations myself and I recommended Alan to my new employer.    Training & Development Manager



Apprenticeships are a great way of adding to your professional knowledge and improving your performance and impact at work.

During your time with us we hope you will feel stretched and challenged (in a good way) and that the training, coaching and other support you get from us helps you to enjoy your role and to learn, develop and gain both added confidence and new skills
