The Training Societi Team


  Alan Bigwood – Technical Director

Formerly responsible for Health & Safety at All Mass Cladding, a large roofing and cladding company that worked across the UK.

After building the company from scratch, to the company that almost (in his words) “clad the world”, he became responsible for ensuring all HSE & Site Health & Safety Rules and Regulations were adhered to and applied on multiple construction sites (All Mass were an A-List Subcontractor who worked with all the Principle Contractors) – it also included putting in a system to ensure all employed and subcontracted gangs were up to date with training.

Alan’s enthusiasm and passion for his subject as well as his vast memory of experiences and a desire to ‘give back’ makes him the perfect person to set the standards and direct our training team. He has “walked the walk”, and now he “talks the talk “and can emphasise and help with delegates and business owners to guide them through the maze of Health and Safety.

As a perfectionist, Alan’s motto is “if you’re not going to do it properly it’s not worth doing” Alan always gives that bit extra – which is so important in this industry.

  Katherine Thorne – Operations Director

Katherine joined in 2014 and is now an integral part of the smooth running of the company.

Katherine comes from a customer service background having previously managed in retail, leisure and Bingo companies.

Katherine and Alan both share the same motto and strive to achieve perfection along with professionalism while ensuring delegates enjoy their courses at the Training Societi
