Hoople Training and Education

Hoople Training and Education is one of the largest suppliers of training programmes in Herefordshire.

Hoople provides training courses to support every need: from mandatory training for the care sector, vocational skills and IT training to personal and professional development for all types of businesses and organisations.

Hoople also supports businesses throughout Herefordshire and its immediate environs to run high quality apprenticeship programmes. Our specialism is health and social care (Levels 2–5), but we also offer well respected and quality apprenticeship programmes in business administration, customer service, early years and childcare (including teaching assistants) and dental nursing.
