Paul & Christine – PCF Training & Consultancy Solutions Ltd

PCF Training and Consultancy Solutions Ltd support some of the primary contractors in Wales that have Corporate Social Responsibility as part of their procurement process. In line with their processes PCF analyse their performance and impact not only on the community benefit but also the environment.

They are also committed to providing community benefit and do this in a number of ways, including supporting charities and partner organisations to further community support as well as helping individuals to gain employment via the Construction CSCS card scheme.

Recently, PCF was awarded a 3-year contract by Trivallis Housing Association to provide Health and Safety training to their teams. This achievement was the result of a tender process and subsequent practical taster session. In addition, PCF received a marketing grant from Caerphilly County Council to promote their business locally and in the wider business community.

Having exceeded their turnover expectations in the first year of trading, PCF is eager to continue building on their success as they enter their second year. As part of their growth strategy, they plan to expand their team of trainers, consultants, and administrative staff.

While PCF has achieved significant milestones, they acknowledge that marketing and establishing a social media presence have been their most challenging areas. To address this, they have engaged a social media provider and participated in their first exhibition in April of this year. Furthermore, they joined a networking group that meets every Wednesday to connect with companies and promote their Health and Safety Consultancy and training courses.

Paul Chapell and Christine Fitt at their Welsh ICE Induction

In September 2022, PCF secured an office space in Welsh ICE, a location chosen for being “the heart of the main business hub and local community”. They aim to become more involved in the ICE Community and foster relationships with other members. As a testament to their expertise, PCF successfully ran an Emergency First Aid at Work course, which received positive feedback from Welsh ICE staff and members.

Looking ahead, PCF recognizes the importance of embracing technology to provide a more immersive training experience. They are committed to continuous business development as a key factor in their ongoing success.
