Language Training Solutions has been formed to provide a highly innovative approach to the language training needs of candidates who require IELTS success in order to pursue a career in an English speaking medical environment.


Daniel Roberts

Daniel founded Language Training Solutions to deliver language examination success more quickly. Having spent a decade working in international recruitment within the healthcare sector, he was well aware of the need among candidates and employers alike to speed up the qualification process. He identified modular and supported learning provided by the very best teachers as the best way to do that. Daniel was one of the pioneers of large-scale recruitment from Portugal, but has also worked in Spain, Italy, Greece, Romania and, in recent, mainly the Indian market. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin and University College, Dublin, studying economics and later business at postgraduate level.

Joanne Ritchie

Joanne has been both an immigrant and a recruiter, so she knows the journey travelled by Language Training Solutions' clients inside-out. She worked in the USA for 20 years, managing a recruitment business that worked with some of the biggest in Seattle and Los Angeles. Upon returning to the UK, she set up Language Training Solutions to bridge the gap in filling nursing positions with skilled professionals who want to work in the UK and US. Given her own experience, she wants to offer guidance, support and contacts to help our clients settle into life in a new country. She believes offering a personalised approach to learning will ensure a student's success.
