Who Are Profound Services?


Established in 2006 and "providing outstanding value for money training (Ofsted 2009)", Profound are a dynamic and rapidly expanding training and employment agency. Recognised as a leader in work-based learning and employability programmes, we pride ourselves in achieving our employability strapline in 'people who go further'. Aligned to this, we also run a successful warehouse and forklift training centre and enjoy a number of contracts with schools across the North East to deliver a Careers Education and Guidance service.

We work closely with a number of government bodies and the work we do is in direct response to key components within the governments and Skills Funding Agency’s training agenda. This means we are aware of new legislation, work schemes and funding packages – we are ready to advise you on the best options for your commercial training and employment needs.

Our Core Activities Include

  • Apprenticeships and work-based learning programmes
  • Employability courses for people who are out of work
  • Recruitment service aligned to our employability training
  • Sector route way programmes to fulfil employed and self-employed positions
  • Forklift training at our warehouse or employers premises
  • 21st century innovative Careers Education and Guidance service within schools

Based in County Durham, we also have a specially designed training warehouse in Tyne & Wear and have an excellent track record delivering training nationally.

Central to our success are our staff. We value and respect their individual needs and ensure they all undertake continuous professional development to make sure their skills and knowledge are current.

In September 2011, Profound acquired Northern Care Training Ltd (NCT) as part of it's expansion plans. NCT, a specialist Health & Social Care training provider now forms part of the Profound Group.
