About Quercus Training

Quercus Training was established in 2010 and provides professional skills training to technical specialists, such as researchers in universities and other organisations, and specialist teams such as project managers, engineers, finance, HR and others. 

The company was created by Dr Helen Goulding, to develop delegates' skills and make them more effective in the workplace. 

Helen often delivers training courses herself, with support from other trainers for larger groups. All Quercus' trainers have recent, relevant experience of the topic they are teaching and are hand picked by Helen to meet client needs.
