Our intuitive learner management system ‘Bud’ will really bring the subject to life through interactive learning tools, access to complementary online resources and relevant social communities, as well as provide real-time learner information so that you will always know what your employee is learning and how they are progressing.

I completed my Level 2 NVQ in Health and Social Care with Paragon Skills. My tutor was absolutely brilliant. I am now currently doing my Level 3 in Health and Social Care. No question is too big or small or silly, help is always at hand either in person, on the phone and or by emails! I would recommend Paragon skills to anyone and everyone wanting to expand their knowledge in their chosen field.
