Who we are

Norman Mark Training is one of the leading training providers to the Social Care sector in the UK. The agency was formed in 1993 and originally operated from Regents College in London. We were later invited to be based at what was The National Institute for Social Work (NISW) at Mary Ward House in London. In1999 we relocated to East Sussex where we still have our administrative centre.
The agency resulted from the founder, Norman Mark’s experience of dull and ‘cold’ training delivered by people who often clearly did not have the hands-on experience to understand learners’ everyday experience. Norman was driven to bring Person Centred and Equality principles to training and work with people who were similarly committed. At any time we work with approximately 22 trainers.
Our core aim is to influence standards of practice so that service users' lives are enhanced.
To achieve this we aim to provide the highest possible standard of training at realistic cost to organisations in the statutory, voluntary and independent Social Care, Support and Housing sectors.

In 2003, in partnership with Leonard Cheshire we won the Greater London Training Award for our programme ‘Training the Trainer in Safeguarding Adults’.
