About us

History of Webs

WEBS have been delivering furniture training since 1968.

We were originally set up as a Training Association and were founded by four of Long Eaton’s major manufacturing companies, the title "WEBS” being derived from the company names:

                     Wade Upholstery Co

                     Everest Furniture

                     Beauvale Furnishings

Gimson and Slater

The name, also being a play on the word "WEBSTER or Furniture Maker".

WEBS mission is "to make a positive impact to the UK and local economies by delivering a high quality and progressive training service that is responsive to the needs of learners and employers".

Our company values underpin our commitment to offering a professional service ensuring that businesses have access to sector specific qualifications to meet workforce development needs:-

  • Welcome to a dynamic training organisation that specialises in the furniture and furnishings industry.  
  • Engaging with staff that are committed and enthusiastic.
  • We Believe that everyone has the potential to succeed.
  • Success is not an aim; it’s our way of life.
  • Teamwork is our mantra.
  • Excellence is our aim.
  • Respecting everyone for who they are, irrespective of background

What we do

Our main role as a Training Provider is to offer government sponsored City & Guilds and PIABC approved Apprenticeship Programmes for the furniture and associated industries, promoting links with the industry, schools and referral agencies.

We also work closely with Construction skills and the Proskills National skills Academy, in developing new qualifications to meet the needs of our sector industries.

Skilled Staff/Role Models

All training staff have achieved nationally recognised qualifications at an advanced level alongside many years of trade experience in their relevant vocational areas. Training staff also hold the relevant teaching qualifications to deliver engaging and up to date training both in the workshop and in the classroom. Staff are competent and have a great deal of experience assisting learners overcome challenging situations both in company and during their off the job training.  

Webs work with both large and small employers to help them develop their skilled workforce as well as assisting in the recruitment of their staff. Our testimonials speak for themselves in how Webs can help your business grow.


Webs is committed to supporting the delivery of vocational provision and supporting young people into Traineeships and Apprenticeships. As part of this commitment we may at times, wish to subcontract with local delivery partners registered on the Government’s ROTO to support the delivery of Government contracts.

Subcontracted relationships with Webs are subject to a flat 20% management retainer. The 20% relates both to funding received by the Skills Funding Agency or Education Funding Agency and tuition fees charged by the subcontractor. There is no differentiation for different cohort sizes. Payments are made to subcontracted institutions on a monthly basis on receipt of an invoice, in reference to the funding drawn down from each budget line (EFA, SFA, 24+ Advanced Learning Loan).

Webs Training Ltd will confirm each month the total funding drawn down from new and existing enrolments, and confirm the 80% due to be received by the subcontracted institution. Payments are then made via BACS to the subcontractor institution.  Toward the latter part of 2014/15 academic year, Webs Training Ltd subcontracted to Futures Advice, Skills and Employment Ltd for a 12 week Traineeship Programme. In total Webs paid £1993.13 to Futures and retained £627.  For detail on our subcontracting policy and fees policy please click on the links below:
