WHO ARE WE?

IGC was founded in January 2015 with a clear objective: to provide a more honest, proficient and cost-effective service than our competitors, at home and overseas. Collectively we have a vast amount of experience as practitioners within the military, law enforcement and training arenas, and are dedicated to the delivery of a first-class service that is underpinned by exceptional values and standards and above all, integrity and client confidentiality.

Moreover, we are only staffed by like-minded professionals who are equally passionate about their respective fields of expertise which ensures continual excellence in the services that we deliver.  The establishment and maintenance of enduring client and partner company relationships is also a core tenet of the IGC ethos and we are continually seeking innovative development opportunities that are mutually beneficial to our friends, associates and ourselves.

ETHICS

Integrity, loyalty, discretion and professionalism are core tenents by which IGC conducts its business. We are committed to building enduring relationships with clients through the delivery of specialist services. As a company, we believe in providing our clients with absolute discretion. In our partner companies who provide second and third line support we look for similar busines ethics and standards to ensure peace of mind and assurance to our client base.

Training delivery

Using a systems approach to bespoke training design, we develop training packages alongside organisational and performance transformations from early conceptualisation through professional delivery, continued quality monitoring and training assurance. These systems provide both a responsive and proactive approach, allowing for rapid development to meet the evolving customer and organisational needs.  Detailed below are the current range of courses that IGC and our partner companies deliver.

The pricing of the training we deliver is dependant on whether we deliver in-house, accommodation requirements and other variables.  To that end please make an enquiry to negotiate a price that is commensurate with your specific requirements.

We are experts in creating Virtual Learning Environments (VLE), and thus have the capability and expertise to deliver training in a blended, technologically enhanced environment, thereby giving students greater control over the time, place and pace of learning.

The National Occupational Standards, developed by the UK Government Sector Skills Councils provides a benchmark for competency and underpins the skills of students.  Where they exist we align our training to them; providing enhanced credibility of training across our client base.

COMPLIANCE

Quality

We operate to ISO 9001:2015 Certified Quality Management System standard and are currently working towards certification. This standard is an assurance that we are managing the risks effecting all areas of its business which naturally extends to clients, suppliers, authorities, and shareholders. Continued monitoring of the current and emerging risks is undertaken and control measures are put in place to avoid the risk or mitigate to the lowest threshold.

Health and Safety

We have effective and efficient Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) Management Systems.  They are a vital element of our business; the systems and resolute attention to compliance are inextricably linked with efficiency, quality, and customer satisfaction.

Data Protection

We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for compliance with the UK Data Protection Act and protection of our personnel’s personal information and are compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
