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.

National Safety Training Services delivers ITSSAR & RTITB Accredited Lift truck training and Plant Training, JAUPT accredited Driver CPC training, ITC accredited First aid courses, IOSH accredited Courses. As well as a full range of NVQ's & Logistics Apprenticeships locally in Hull and throughout the UK.

With a team of permanent professional trainers in Hull and around the UK, and a diverse range of expertise in training lift truck & Plant operators who are employed or seeking employment within the Logistics, Ports, Warehousing, Manufacturing, Construction & Waste Management industry.

This year National Safety Training Services has won contracts to deliver training for several companies at the docks in Hull & Goole. This has lead to National Safety Training Services applying for ITSSAR (Independent Training Standards Scheme Register) training centre accreditation.

Following a successful inspection visit earlier this year, National Safety Training Services are now a fully accredited ITSSAR training centre for Both Operators & Instructors.

National Safety Training Services are also now Matrix Accredited for IAG. The Matrix Standard is the unique quality standard for organisations to asses and measure their advice and support services, which ultimately supports individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals.
Recent additions to National Safety Training Services Fundable course portfolio includes;
• 1 Day First Aid Courses
• 1 day Abrasive Wheels workshops
• IOSH working safely 1 day courses.

National Safety Training Services has also; “Won the Humber Talent Match Contract”.

The vision is that; over a 5 year period “Talent Match Humber” will support 1,500 young people with multiple needs, aged 18-24, who are long-term unemployed, or economically inactive. The aim to get 330 (22%) into sustained jobs or self-employment and 450 (30%) into apprenticeships or further learning / training. With our support, the aim is to help 1200 (80%) young people to improve their ability to cope with long-term unemployment, develop greater self-confidence, and increase their sense of optimism about the future.

As part of this unique Humber Talent Match program NSTS will be hosting an initial ice breaker day out with the team at NSTS and an end of course celebration. They are in talks with a couple of local employers to secure vital work experience for our young people and we are keen to hear from more employers who could provide any places for up to 3-4 weeks work experience for our young people”. The work experience will only take place once the young people are fully qualified and ‘work ready’. This work experience has already started and the initial feedback has been very successful.

The ultimate aim of this initiative is to get all of these young people into Jobs. Along with FREE IOSH, Forklift & Warehousing courses National Safety Training Services, continue to go from strength to strength.
