Stokesley training experts go from strength to strength with new contract wins


A mother and daughter run professional training company has secured two major contracts as the business continues to grow and plans to expand into new locations.


Bespoke Professional Development and Training (BePro) provides tailored and flexible professional development qualifications and is celebrating its second year in business. The company was set up in 2014 by Georgina Selmi, from Great Broughton, and her mum, Val Swales, joined the business last year as it grew faster than anticipated.


BePro, based at the Terry Dicken Business Park in Stokesley, has now secured two new contracts to deliver its training services to prestigious organisations on Teesside and in North Yorkshire.


In Middlesbrough, the company is working with Applebridge Construction on Cargo Fleet Road to deliver CMI-accredited leadership and management programmes and supervisory training.


In addition, BePro is also working with North Yorkshire County Council to deliver a number of business administration qualifications throughout the North Yorkshire area.


Judith Rooney, HR manager at Applebridge Construction said: “After such a positive experience studying both level 3 and level 5 CIPD qualifications with the team at BePro it was the obvious choice to work with them to develop our management team. We are looking forward to working together.”


Both Georgina and Val have many years’ experience in delivering professional development training at colleges and universities throughout the North East and work with a team of professionals who have worked in the sector for decades. Courses are delivered at training premises at Teesside University in Middlesbrough, from its HQ at Terry Dicken Business Park in Stokesley and at various individual business premises.


Thanks to its rapid growth, BePro is now looking to secure more outlets in which to deliver its courses.


Georgina said: “Our professional development courses are proving really popular and are very highly regarded which is making us the go-to company for such qualifications. This is a huge boost for us and has led to our new contracts with North Yorkshire County Council and Applebridge Construction- two organisations with very different demands which we are able to meet.


“We pride ourselves on the exceptionally high levels of teaching standards, our face-to-face workshops, the flexibility of when and how you learn and our own professional experiences. This is a really exciting time for BePro as we celebrate our second successful year in business and look forward to securing new premises in the coming months too.”


A variety of learning options are available, including evening and weekends. For more information or to register interest visit and Val- BePro1
