Dee came down to our factory the following week and we were amazed by the package that they could offer us which would cost us a business nothing."GRP Building Solutions

Jack was delighted to be offered the opportunity to prove himself at Tilsons Scaffolding in Hull.
Jack told us -
“Well before I started at National Safety Training I was unemployed also I had no qualifications. Then I started at National, I learnt a lot from the course. I succeeded in getting different qualifications. The staff were really good as I fell behind on the course, but they stood me up and helped me to catch up and pass. I now have a job at Tilson Scaffolding which National found for me. Since then I have been to work away and am more successful in life thanks to National”.
Jacks Supervisor at Tilsons Scaffolding in Hull said “Jack is a very hardworking young man. I can now leave the yard and know that it is in good hands. He has only been here for a short time and already he knows more than those here before him.”
Since starting at Tilsons, Jack has been able to earn money to go on holiday, which he was very happy about. He has also been entrusted to work on different sites alone including being sent to Newcastle for 16 days. He said he enjoyed this because he was put up in a nice hotel. Jack has also been the envy of some of his friends who have also signed up to attend the programme in the hopes of gaining employment like jack.
Onwards and upwards Jack! Well Done!
Danny joined the Talent Match program back in January 2015.
Danny had been out of work for over 12 months. He is the head of a young family and wanted to build a better future for his child, partner and himself. He felt stuck in a rut and frustrated with the situation he found himself in. He found that the situation lead to him feeling de-motivated, which he knew in his head was not good and the wrong way to think of things.
Danny engaged well into the programme and made some new friends with fellow beneficiaries. He balanced his attendance to the program whilst working around looking after his child whilst his partner was studying at college. He found it a struggle at times. He was offered finding funded childcare but he said he was currently using the free nursery place available to him.
During his time Danny achieved the following qualifications –
Edexcel Warehouse and Storage Level 1
RTITB Counterbalance FLT Operators Licence
IOSH Working Safely.
Danny then discussed with the NSTS Team, he would like to go on a work experience placement. So Danny, attended an interview at GRP Building Solutions Ltd. The interview went well, and Danny started his 4 week work experience placement. During the work experience, Danny proved himself to be an asset to the company. So they discussed offering Danny the opportunity to continue with them, when the work experience period ended on an adult apprenticeship in Warehousing and Storage L2.
Danny is currently still with GRP Building Solutions Limited, completing his apprenticeship and learning new skills along the way, with the NSTS apprenticeship team whilst providing for his young family and gaining back his independence and the ability to stand on his own feet.
Major developments have been made in recent months at National Safety Training Services in Hull.
National Safety Training Services has seen significant growth over the past 18 months, following the contracts they where awarded from, Hull College Group (ESF Funded), Leeds College (ESF Funded) and the Humber Learning Consortium (National Lottery Funded).
The growth over the past 18 months has created jobs within the company; roles where created for 3 additional full time trainers, 1 employer engagement officer, 1 operations manager, as well as 1 administration apprentices and a further full time administrator.
The company was given a contract with Hull College Group working on Skills Support for the Workforce project, which was funded by the European Social Fund and backed by the Humber LEP. The SSW Contract given to National was for two years commencing in 2013, initially worth £125k, but after demonstrating the ability to achieve targets and deliver on time, National Safety Training Services where quickly offered additional funding to deliver more fully funded qualifications in the Hull & East Riding area. Courses ranged from 1-day first aid courses to forklift training and NVQs in warehousing, plant operations and port operations. On this particular contract National has successfully contributed to the up skilling of more than 750 learners, across 75 employers in the Humberside area.
Although the Skill Support for the Workforce funding ends in July this year, the company will continue to deliver Talent Match Humber funded training courses to unemployed people from Hull and East Riding.
The portfolio of courses available at National Safety Training Services has increased to included, IPAF training courses and PASMA courses.
Ashley Shaw, Managing Director of national Safety Training, said: “major developments have taken place in recent months and National has grown its workforce considerably.
“The company has upgraded IT systems, moved into larger training premises and invested in a fleet of new lift trucks. The move and upgrades needed to happen if we are to meet the demand from our customers both locally and nationally.
“We wanted to offer a wider rage of products and services to our customers, as well as better training facilities. I think we have gone a long way to achieving this and we are continually developing our services ”
