Skilltrade aims to answer your training needs. The various existing modules provide a starting point for almost all company specific courses, allowing for specific requirements to be included. We evaluate participants at what level to start as a result of which we are able to tailor or combine the courses like building blocks. When people come to a stage where more management or project skills are required we are also able to provide that next level.

We provide support services to the transport and supply chain industry. Our work is focused around four key areas; projects, standards and accreditation, training and development and auditing. We improve knowledge and skills by producing tools and guidance, delivering practical, usable information and developing and raising standards.

New for 2019, our ethical supply chain audit investigates modern slavery in the supply chain using a 105 point process. It was shortlisted for a European Supply Chain Excellence Award in 2019 and 5% of the fee goes to Anti Slavery International to support their work across the world.

We also deliver health and safety auditing, which helps to identify risk at entry and exit points, across the site and portside, while our compliance audit can assess the standards in place according to the relevant bye-laws. We also provide management training for identifying slavery, managing risk, understanding compliance and managing safety and security.

TVR Instruments Limited is a one stop shop for instrumentation and ancillary products for use in the switchboard or panel building industry. We pride ourselves on having the knowledge to source and supply quality products at competitive prices. All our products are manufactured in Europe or in the European Economic Area. All our products are manufactured under ISO9001 quality certificated factories and are compliant with all relevant CE marking directives- EMC and LVD. The philosophy of TVR Instruments is based on matching the customer requirement with a product rather than only having a "standard" product to offer. Having sourced and supplied all classes of instruments in the past from a simple battery status indicator to instruments used for critical operations in nuclear power plants, we have a depth of knowledge and scope of experience not commonly found these days. Quality is a major issue with regards to instrumentation and we have therefore sought only to source our offering from European manufacturers. Contrary to what may be said there are still European sources for the electrical components used in switchboards and distribution panels at a competitive price. Having over 20 years’ experience in the meter industry across Europe and the Middle East we are intent on supplying a quality service and a quality product at a competitive price.
