Training Facilities

We offer you the opportunity to train your staff in many situations, locations and venues, utilising an extensive range of modern delivery methods. We work tirelessly to create an environment of true engagement and interest for your learners.

Our principal training site is located within the beautiful Farncombe Estate, close to the town of Broadway in the Cotswolds, which has all the features that you would expect of a high-end, fully residential campus-style facility. Our customers have full access to a range of 4* and 5* en-suite rooms, enjoy spectacular dining experiences, full internet access and breath-taking views. All within the peace and calm of a private, rural site.

The training rooms are extremely well resourced and of exceptionally high quality. So too are the refreshments provided throughout each training day. Each training room is large, light and airy, and contains all the training aids you would associate with the very highest quality learning and development. Many of the training rooms back directly onto the extensive outdoor training area where learners make great use of the wide range of practical tasks that are all undertaken in a large and private setting. Some of our leadership courses utilise the nearby Broadway Tower, which is one of the highest points in the Cotswolds with its stunning backdrop and outstanding views into the Vale of Evesham and beyond.

We are also privileged to have access to one of the largest and most complete range of practical and contextualised incident management training facilities in the world. The unique facilities of the Fire Service College at Moreton in Marsh (just seven miles East of Farncombe) enable our delegates to undertake leadership, command and control, communications and incident management training in the most realistic conditions possible, using a range of contextualised training rigs that replicate the working environment. The contextualised training facilities include an excellent rail incident complex, an industrial complex, a motorway, aircraft, an oil rig and a ship.


Finally, and new for 2016, we are also pleased to introduce our partnership with Adventure Learning.

Located just three miles from Farncombe, Adventure Learning provides an exclusive venue for a wide range of our practical-based training courses and is designed for organisations and learners who prefer more of a ‘down to earth’ living experience for the duration of their course. To that end, Adventure Learning is able to provide a luxury outdoor living experience based on modern, well-appointed timber-built pods for sleeping and timber-built washing, showering and hygiene facilities; all within a stunning ‘wild woods’ setting. The 400 acre site provides the space and opportunity for Benchmark to conduct a wide range of our leadership & management and team-building courses; each one bespoke to the needs of the customer.
