Celebrating 20 years at Sanctus Training!

Tina Smith, Business Development Manager at Sanctus Training is celebrating 20 years at Sanctus Training Ltd today (5th June 2020). We thought it would be nice to give you an insight into the successful, highly respected women that she is. Here are some fun facts…


  • Favourite film?

Sliding doors, tend to go for chick flicks


  • Favourite food?

Thai, Italian. I have two daughters who are chefs so really enjoy their food!


  • Favourite place?



  • Favourite book?

Not much of a book reader, although during lockdown have been reading more. I enjoy romantic comedy and true stories.


  • Favourite past time?

Enjoy socialising with family and friends. Recently taken up gardening and decorating.  We have a dog called Molly who I enjoy walking. I have lived in my village practically all my life but since lockdown have found walks and areas I haven’t been to before.


Tina is passionate about helping others and throughout her life has volunteered to support various charities including Home Start and the local Youth Group which she help set up and had a big part in raising funds for the kids park. More recently Tina has been helping those in need during the current Covid-19 lockdown by dog walking for those self-isolating and helping with shopping for the vulnerable.


Rugby is a huge passion for Tina and she can often be seen at Kingsholm Rugby stadium supporting Gloucester and standing on the side-lines supporting her own son playing local rugby whatever the weather!


Tina originally started working for Peter Cooke in 1998 but officially became Business Manager for Sanctus Training Ltd in 2000.


I love my job as I feel I have grown with the company and have a sense of belonging. We have a unique bond and friendship (The Sanctus family). I like helping people find the right course for them and have a sense of achievement when they finish the course and are so proud of themselves. I also enjoy working with people and building strong customer relationships’


We, the Sanctus Training Team, are all very much looking forward to delivering courses and working alongside our customers once again.
