There are four primary ways we support business in this area:
CREATING OR ADAPTING TRAINING PROVISION TO MEET THE SPECIFIC NEEDS OF A PARTICULAR GROUP OR SECTOR WITHIN THE BUSINESS
These courses are usually short, and focussed on IT, Health and Safety or soft skills.
ADAPTING NATIONALLY RECOGNISED PROVISION TO MEET THE SPECIFIC NEEDS OF THE BUSINESS
This can involve elements unique to that business such as product knowledge, or unique IT or customer service systems. It can also involve the creation of a new accredited qualification.
BESPOKE PROGRESSION ROUTES AND TRAINING SOLUTIONS FOR ALL OR THE MAJORITY OF THE BUSINESS
We work with companies to fill training gaps, offer advice on training funding, ensure that that training meets the needs of employees and support development through training progression
SUPPORTING AND DEVELOPING ‘SUSTAINABLE TRAINING’ WITHIN AN ORGANISATION
The underlying principle is giving your organisation the means to deliver your own training. This support can also incorporate our ‘Train the Trainer’ programme.
Working with the county's employers
We appreciate that for a lot of our students the courses they study are just the first step they will take. Therefore we work closely with the county's largest firms to better the exposure of our students to the opportunties available.
