Maggie Fowler


Maggie founded SupplyTrain CIC after becoming an Apprenticeship Ambassador in 2015. She had recently retired from a successful finance career in Higher and Further Education and wanted to help small businesses understand apprenticeships and the benefits they could bring.

After talking to employers, it became clear there was a lot of bad advice and misconceptions about workplace training and how to access skills. SupplyTrain CIC was born to more directly influence some of her concerns.

Maggie takes no income from the company, using any fees paid for her services to support small businesses understand apprenticeships, bid writing and meeting potential investors for projects such as Qualipic.

CIC Statement

CIC Statement

SME support

“SupplyTrain CIC is committed to helping businesses and sole traders in the UK that want to engage in high quality, workplace training and apprenticeships.”

We believe that taking on an apprentice and providing high quality training for staff is not just a good commercial decision for businesses, but also a socially responsible one. Training staff as they work creates more satisfied employees, more productive companies and a UK economy with a skills base to underpin its future success.

Phil Golding

Phil Golding

Managing Director

Phil is on a mission to bridge the skills gap between what employers need from their workforce and the mismatch in skills, knowledge and behaviours many job applicants possess.

Phil believes that training should be shaped by the needs of responsible employers. He hears far too often from young people that the qualifications they worked hard to obtain did not, in reality, open up more job opportunities in their chosen field. This leaves them demoralised, apathetic and disappointed in the world of work.

Using a market-led approach to training, Phil gets under the skin of employers and uses that insight to develop a better training service for all. Over his career, Phil has delivered £millions worth of new income to training providers and colleges, as well as increasing satisfaction levels amongst learners and winning several awards along the way.
