We currently have access to a pot of funding, courtesy of the European Social Fund, which enables us to provide free training to small and medium sized businesses across the East Midlands, Yorkshire & the Humber and South Yorkshire areas. Calderdale College are the prime contractors for the scheme, and we are delighted to announce that we are able to deliver this provision as sub-contractors for these localities.
We offer an extensive range of qualifications to suit every industry including: Activity Leadership, Brickwork, Cleaning and Support Services, Customer Services, Maintenance Operations, Retail Skills, Team Leading, and these are just a handful of what we have to offer! Further to this, we can also offer a tailored programme of training suited entirely to your needs and requirements, provided that we have the provisions to deliver it, and that it comes within the specifications of the Work Place Learning Programme.
The benefits of up-skilling your own workforce are infinite! Staff turnover tends to be greatly reduced in companies that offer training which reduces the need and exasperating costs of recruitment, employee attainment levels allow for improvements in employment status and your staff will gain up-to-date qualifications and industry techniques which ultimately increase employee motivation! When the economy does in fact pick up, your business will further benefit from being a cut above the rest, while reaping the rewards of having a recently and skilfully trained team of staff.
We have an excellent, proven track record; we are currently working alongside 105 live businesses to deliver expert training to their staff, and the feedback has been first class with 82%** of employers asked suggesting that efficiency in the workplace increased as a result of on-site training through Dearne Valley College!
Training is provided on-site for your convenience, and by choosing Dearne Valley College to provide this, you will benefit from the excellent services provided by the college’s professional, dedicated team of staff, who are able to work with you to decide upon which qualifications will benefit your staff and business in the best possible way.
