What courses will be taught by freelancers? - At FI Maidstone our tutor team are employees. The majority are also owners of the business with a vested interest in its success - which will be down to excellent pass rates, subsequent recommendation and providing full out of hours study support.
Will you offer my students financial incentives or gifts so that they choose you as their training provider even though it is actually their Company paying for the Course? – At FI Maidstone we pride ourselves on being both professional and ethical. When an employer is paying, even though they may not be the decision maker, we would ensure that any financial benefit for choosing us would be passed onto it as the fee payer, for example in the form of a discount. As opposed to the student in the form of a Red Letter Day voucher or an i-Pad for example.
Are some of your listed tutors on secondment from another centre? - At FI Maidstone our core tutor team is Maidstone based and will still be there in 12 months time. For us it is about building long term relationships with our students (and clients).

Who will be my point of contact? - At FI Maidstone this will either be Ian Fidock for any client related matters or Chris Ellis for administration issues. It will not be a business development manager who is far removed from the product, the student and the classroom nor a faceless call centre operative.
Will the processing of my booking & credit control be done by a service centre? - At FI Maidstone all customer service activities are done locally. We use an effective and efficient system and as a result it also means a hassle free experience for the client.
Will you ever cancel a course with low numbers? - At FI Maidstone we would run a course even if only one person had paid to be on it.
