"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

Would you like your staff to have the right skills to grow your business and all for FREE??
The Skills Support for the Workforce Programme is a free service, created to help small to medium-sized employers turn their business growth plans into reality by upskilling their existing workforce. We work with employers to identify their skills gaps and recommend bespoke training plans which will give their workforce the skills they need to grow the business. And the best bit – we even deliver the training for free.
We warn how risks are increased by unaccredited 'in-house' forklift training.
We often get asked what the difference is between in house and accredited training. Recently we have seen an increase in the uptake of in – house flt training rather than choosing an accredited scheme such as RTITB.
A story published by RTITB highlights the dangers often associated with in house training. We thought we would share it with you.

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!
