Nuts and Bolts Training was founded in 2016 by Julie Freemantle and Steven Proudfoot to deliver training to the housing sector.

Training is based on research that identified the specific needs of employers across the housing sector and often customised to individual employers’ requirements. Feedback from clients and candidates is consistently very positive.

The feedback praises both the quality of the courses and the quality of our specialist trainers. Each trainer has a high level of expertise in the housing sector and show great skill in engaging and motivating candidates.

The move to on-line delivery in 2020 has proved to be very popular and is now an established format. We are also looking to reintroduce face to face training as client’s needs change. In addition, we are happy to consider a blend of formats as flexibility in this area is clearly the way ahead. Whichever route is chosen we are confident that the experience of our team will enable us to meet our clients’ requirements.


Julie was previously head of training at Asset Skills, the government licensed Sector Skills Council for Housing, and Steven was Chief Operating Officer of the same organisation. Julie has also held senior training positions at Associated British Ports and Heathrow Airport whilst Steven is a Director of a rural Housing Association and of a charity that runs a specialist care facility in a remote area.
