Meet the Team

At Blue Apple Training we love our team of dedicated and highly qualified staff and pride ourselves on having a real family feel. We recruit staff with a shared common ethos and with principles of respecting and helping others. We self-govern our attitudes, commitment and passion in our pursuit of continuous improvement by frequently asking each other “Is that the Blue Apple Training way?”

The “Blue Apple Training way” is going the extra 10 miles in whatever we do. Meet our amazing team by clicking below
