Our story

TechSmart Training was founded by Tania and Fiona McLean-Tabor in partnership with Richard Tang, the founder of Zen Internet, one of the largest employers in the area, which is based in Rochdale, Greater Manchester.  We recognised that within the Calderdale area, there is a skills shortage in the IT sector and so we wanted to address that and to help to bridge the gap by providing high quality technical training at affordable prices to local people. 

We acknowledged that for learners to get the best out of our training, it had to benefit local employers which in turn helps to benefit the learner who will have an increased opportunity to move into employment where they can utilise the skills they have learned.

With University fees at an all time high we wanted to ensure that local people in our area were not priced out of a solid education and the opportunity to move into a well paid technical career. We have a passion for this community and we are absolutely committed to providing the skills required for our learners to move into further education, training or employment. As a community based training provider we exist to help local people to fully realise their potential.

Our courses meet the highest standards and are accredited by CPD and we also ensure that our trainers are educated to degree level and are willing to constantly update their skills due to the fast paced nature of technology.  Contact us today to see how we can help you.
