About Us

GOSTA Training was founded in 1982 by Alan Armour who was very much involved in the delivery of the government training programmes of that time. Students were working within various occupational sectors (golf courses, landscape companies etc.) with part of the training being delivered through attendance at local College provision.

In 1993 Alan retired and Lesley Lowrie took over as the Managing Director of the company. Since that time the company has evolved as the needs of the industries we serve have dictated.

GOSTA provide a classroom environment where the knowledge and understanding element of the qualifications is delivered, with regular visits to the workplace to provide support to Assessors and Students.

Lesley is highly committed to a close working relationship with the employers and students the company serves. It is intended that the business will continue to grow and develop into new areas of training as the need arises.
