Who are we?

What does Seedbed Consulting Ltd do?

Seedbed Consulting Ltd offers a range of consulting services around adult and community learning, literacy, language and numeracy, social and educational research, project management and partnership working.

The company was set up to provide help and support to busy individuals and organisations looking for expertise, ideas and creative solutions, as well as those who simply don’t have the time to deliver projects or programmes within existing timeframes or staffing levels.

Let us deliver for you, whether you need research information, effective evaluations and useful recommendations, one-to-one or group training, creative materials or other support around adult learning and skills.

If you need the expertise, time or someone to just complete a specific project or piece of work, Seedbed Consulting Ltd can help!

Amanda is a great consultant to work with if you want to feel confident that everything will be done on time, on budget and well. She has good networking skills, is extremely well organised and conscientious and is very knowledgeable about adult learning. I would recommend her for research, practical adult learning projects, teaching, training, and partnership building projects.
