Case Studies


PHS is a leading workplace services provider with over 140 regional branches throughout the UK.  We were approached by their Caerphilly branch when they were looking for a Spanish teacher for Ian Featherstone, their Chief Information Officer, who deals with the Spanish market. 

Ian (pictured below) has been having lessons with our teacher, Drew, on a weekly basis for over a year now and has progressed from beginner to intermediate level.  This is what he had to say about his lessons:

“I have to say Drew is at a totally different level to any other tutor I have had.

I have made great progress with her, as she is doing less text book work and more interactive conversation which suits me down to the ground.

Many thanks to all at Chris Polatch for their helpful and professional approach.”

And a few words from Drew:

“Ian is a pleasure to teach. I teach him about 3-4 hours a week. As well as working through the core text book, we focus a lot on conversation which is what Ian wants to practise more of.

Chris Polatch Language Courses are very easy to deal with, I find them organised, great communicators and would recommend both tutors and students to use them!”

PHS is most famous for washrooms. But as one of the UK’s leading providers of workplace services, PHS does much more than just washrooms; they offer a complete range of solutions to help keep businesses running smoothly.

Founded in 1963, the PHS Group has grown rapidly over the last 50 years to now offer over 200 products and services- from PAT testing, to data shredding, to laundered entrance mats.

Today, the PHS Group provides services to over 250,000 customers at more than 300,000 locations nationwide.
