Specialists in furniture industry qualifications and apprenticeships
Born out of the furniture industry we are proud to offer a complete range of furniture qualifications to meet the skills needs of the industry both now and in the future.
From standalone qualifications for those wanting to enter the industry, to NVQs for those who need to gain their CSCS cards along with a full portfolio of qualifications to support furniture manufacturer apprenticeships, we really do have everything.
“We came across a clerical problem very late in the certification process which could have prevented a learner getting on site with his new CSCS card. Despite it being out of hours, we got an immediate response from OAL and were provided with a clear cut solution. Customer service like this from OAL allows us to maintain a high degree of customer satisfaction right down the line for our clients, employers and learners.”
