On 14 October, our new training, marketing, and media company, SkillSure, launched in the heart of Suffolk. Our ethos is to provide all local companies, self-employed, charities, and volunteers with high quality, accredited, regulated, and up-to-date training, media management, and marketing, to ensure they meet the needs of governing bodies, legal requirements, business and staff development, and customer satisfaction. For example, did you know that if you are employed, self-employed, or volunteer you need to have appropriate First Aid training to be fully compliant with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) directives? Do not worry though, we have all the first aid courses to help you meet your statutory responsibilities.

Located in Stowmarket, we have our own training suite that meets all your requirements, from small meetings to mid-size conferences. We can facilitate forums, meetings, or conferences. Our conference room can be set up in either banquet or theatre style. We can also hire out the room for the customer’s own use. Our trainers are highly experienced and qualified, and we have access to a network of experienced and quality trainers.  Our Media and Marketing manager has gained experience working alongside BAFTA-nominated directors, BT Sports (now TNT Sport), BBC Sport, The Press Association, and national football teams. 

At our launch, we supported our neighbouring charity, Families Together Suffolk, via a raffle, where local companies provided prizes. We would like to thank the following charities for their donations; Wellfairies, Heart of Suffolk Distillery, Bedford Lodge, and Families Together Suffolk. On the day we raised enough money to support some local families.

If you would like to find out more about what we do, or how we can help, then please either visit our website:, phone us: 01449 763 979, or pop in to see us: Stevens House, 17 Station Road West, Stowmarket, IP14 1EF
