"We were contacted by Dee from National Safety Training Centre back in April to see if we would be interested in taking up the opportunity of some free fork lift training for our employees along with an NVQ qualification which would be relevant to the work that they currently did. 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

We were contacted by National Safety Training Centre back in April to see if we would be interested in taking up the opportunity of some free fork lift training for our employees along with an NVQ qualification which would be relevant to the work that they currently did. 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 nothing as a business.
The whole process of enrolling our team and starting them on the course went really smoothly and although the idea of getting back into a classroom was met with a bit of resistance initially they have all settled into it and with the support and guidance from their trainer are all now sitting their first set of exams.
We also have one member of our team who is dyslexic and was quite distressed about the prospect of sitting written exams but the trainer managed to come up with an alternative way in which to do the exam whereby he could dictate to him and he wrote down the answers, he was actually the first in the team to sit and pass the first stage of the exams. This has increased his confidence dramatically.
We were also approached to see if we would be in a position to take on one of the apprentices, they had working with them for 4 weeks free of charge work experience. Although we didn’t have any vacant positions at that stage we knew that we were looking at additional staff in the near future so it seemed a good opportunity to trial somebody and see if they had basic skills which we could build on and improve. A National Safety employability consultant came down with Danny who had been through a number of the courses the centre have to offer including fork lift driving which was very useful to us. He was really well mannered and seemed extremely keen to work. From the day that Danny joined us he fitted in really well with the rest of the team and was always punctual. He listened to what was asked of him and has continued to do so throughout his time with us. After the 4 week period we decided that although we were still not quite at the stage to need an extra member of staff we soon would be and we didn’t want to lose Danny so we took him on as an apprentice, he continued to work hard, listen and now after 3 months he is a full time member of the team. The whole process was extremely easy and well managed and as our business continues to grow this is something that we will continue to do in other departments of the business as we feel the way in which National Safety Training Centre develop & coach their apprentices is in line with the way we ourselves would like to bring on our employees.
I would not hesitate to recommend them for both their training and also offering apprentices into the workplace. GRP Building Solutions Ltd
