Mowbray Partners Limited

Providing online Training & Consultancy to the Police, UK & Worldwide Conservation Agencies & Commercial Organisations

What We Do

Welcome to Mowbray Partners – if you want to train your team in enforcement properly, you’re in the right place.

At Mowbray Partners, we provide market-leading, cutting edge, modern training for over half of all UK police forces and wildlife and conservation organisations that need to navigate enforcement. And with decades of experience in the world of enforcement, passion around conservation matters, and an ability to take traditionally dry topics and deliver them in a first-class, modern and easy-to-digest format, we can help you:

  • Train your team
  • Improve your organisation’s performance
  • Make a real difference in your sector

Why Mowbray Partners?

Our team has years of experience in enforcement and in business – two of our founders Ken McIntosh and Tim Madgwick have a combined nearly 60 years experience in North Yorkshire Police, rising to the position of Assistant Chief Constable and Temporary Chief Constable respectively. Our other founder, Paul Williams, has spent 30 years running his own financial businesses – so we know our subjects like the back of our hands. But it doesn’t end there. Since 2016, Ken, Paul and Tim (together with the whole Mowbray team) have spent years learning and honing their skills, understanding and knowledge of modern training methods, and how to communicate concepts in the most effective way possible – all of that knowledge and understanding is now available in the form of online training, beautifully delivered through multiple devices at point of need. With every training course we create, we work directly with experts in that particular subject, to make sure the end product is precisely what’s required to meet your needs, and achieve the overall aim.

Are we right for you?

If you need high quality enforcement training that’s totally flexible, designed specifically for your organisation and tailored to help you achieve your goals, we should have a conversation. We already work with more than half of all UK police forces, and conservation organisations including the National Wildlife Crime Unit, the British Association of Shooting and Conservation and League Against Cruel Sports, and we’re always happy to have a chat about how we can help you achieve your goals, whether that’s:

  • Upskilling your existing team
  • Growing your organisation with high quality training
  • Increasing revenue via membership propositions

If it’s worth a conversation, fill in the form below now, or email us at enquiries@mowbraypartners.co.uk, and we'll arrange a good time to talk.

Our Platform

Our platform provides very simple access to all students, is easy to navigate and has downloadable certificates, progress reports and extensive management information. It complies with the highest levels of security standards.

It also allows for the development of comprehensive knowledge libraries which are accessible to all students who would like to delve deeper into the subject area, a discussion forum where ideas can be shared and questions answered and a news function to allow individuals to have access to the latest information and stories.

Partnerships

Mowbray Partners are keen to work with companies on a joint venture basis where all sides benefit from revenue generated. We already do this very successfully with a number of organisations and do this because it enables companies with restricted budgets to develop excellent training solutions and benefit from income streams that they would not otherwise have access to. Mowbray Partners are happy to discuss all partnership structures with interested clients.

Our clients are often particularly interested in replacing fully in person courses with a hybrid approach of an initial online elearning programme, which may or may not include an examination, provided by Mowbray Partners, followed by in person delivery by the client.

The reputation of the British police service internationally is excellent. We are using the relationships we have built across the service, and a wide range of partners agencies, over many years, to develop our offer across the world.

Our collective commercial & police experience, all 180 years of it, has not been gleamed from a recent article or book, our team has real life experience & bring that to our clients, without it costing a fortune per day in Management & Business Skills.
