As an employer, are you aware of the funds available to upskill your workforce?

There is concern in the Government about the quality of skills among employees in the UK.  A recent report presented  by Lord Leitch indicates that the UK is languishing close to the bottom of the EC league for employed staff whom do not possess any form of qualification at NVQ level two and above.

The Learning & Skills Council are promoting the “Train To Gain” Fund to encourage all employers to assist with this initiative by offering 100% funding of a vocational qualification to level two for any employee who have not achieved grade “C” and above for GCSE  or any NVQ at level 2 or it’s equivalent.

Management are not exempt in this scheme, the offer is extended to managers, supervisors or team leaders to complete a level three or four management vocational qualification.

The Government has made it clear that if employers do not seize the initiative, they will force a bill through that will make it compulsory for the employer to ensure their employees are qualified to at least a level two NVQ and at the employer’s expense.

For further information on how Train to Gain can help your business contact Trident Training on 0151 227 1234.
