Managing Director’s Welcome

yvWelcome to the last newsletter of the year. As we approach the end of the year it is a great opportunity to look back and acknowledge all of the great achievements that we have accomplished together as a company. It has been an extremely busy year for the Group and we have been privileged to participate in several fantastic events! From our second successful year in participating in the Prudential Ride London to our high class accreditation status in ACS, ISO and the Matrix Standard.

With the New year fast approaching, I am extremely excited to see what the New Year will hold for the Group. We have been working relentlessly behind the scenes to ensure our staff have the opportunity to work at as many new areas as possible.

I would like to thank you all for your tremendous hard work across the year and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

Yvonne Bryce
Managing Director 

Matrix Standard



Knights Training Academy Grabs The Matrix Standard!

On Wednesday 13th December 2017, Knights Training Academy were successful in the three-day assessment for the Matrix Standard.

The Matrix Standard is a unique, quality framework for organisations to assess and measure their information, advice and/or guidance services which supports individuals in their choice of career, learning and work life goals.








“The concept of getting the standard is a fantastic step up towards working on information, advice and guidance. Doing the process was an extremely valuable experience for everyone.

I would like to take this moment to thank all staff, clients, employers and learners who participated in the assessment process.

Above all, I’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!” – Jessica Redford, Quality Assurance.

Lending A Helping Hand

On Monday 11th December Tony Knights, Jamie Knights, Yvonne Bryce and Nicky Banger travelled to Nepal to help rebuild a school after the horrific earthquake back in April 2015.

Founder Tony Knights said, “For all of us this trip was a trip of a lifetime. It honestly made us feel as if we had won life’s lottery compared to the conditions that we witnessed. Albeit everyone in the villages were full of joy and happiness to see us. We now look forward to building the Knights Lodge to cater for all the young children that have over six hour trips every day to go to school over the hills.”


Throughout the years, we’ve always remained committed to lending a helping hand to those in need! This was a life changing experience and we would like to thank all those involved!
