Welcome to Competence Matters Ltd

Competence Matters Ltd was founded in 2004 primarily to deliver training and qualification in the rail and construction sectors.

Our founding Director, Mr David Hanley spent the previous 10 years working as the Head of Training and Development in a large civil engineering company. During this time he became steeped in the challenges involved in the management of the skills and competencies of large numbers of staff working in safety critical conditions.

We strive hard to ensure that when we design, develop and deliver training and assessment programmes that they are fit for purpose, deliver what the client needs. Our mission & values has never changed since the formation of the business:


To provide our clients with an affordable cost effective and value for money services via a commitment to quality in our delivery and to deliver these services in a manner which maintains and develops the skills and competencies of the people we employ and all the stakeholders we interact with.


Competence Matters Ltd will interact with all stakeholders in a manner which upholds all reasonable environmental, ethical, moral as well as legislative and contractual principles. We will make every effort to conduct our business in line with current legal frameworks including Health Safety and Welfare, Equal Opportunities, Malpractice and Discrimination laws.
