"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

A story published on the government website this week speaks about the Hundreds of employers who are now behind traineeships.
The government is urging even more to get involved in helping to unlock the potential of motivated young people who are not yet work ready.
Traineeships: help 16-23 year olds gain the vital work experience needed in order to get an apprenticeship or other jobs giving unemployed young people work preparation, training and work experience as well as English and maths qualifications.
Skills and Enterprise Minister, Matthew Hancock MP said: “We introduced traineeships to unlock the great potential of young people. Employers involved in the programme are now helping their trainees to develop the skills that are required in the workplace. They can then build on this and begin their career with an apprenticeship or other sustainable job.
“With National Apprenticeship Week starting next week (3-7 March 2014), there has never been a better time to start thinking about offering a traineeship or an apprenticeship.”
Funded projects are being delivered nationally, one project introduced in 2013 was The skills support for the workforce, which is backed by the ESF. The fund excists to support employers by upskilling the workforce.
Traineeships and apprenticeship programs aimed at the logistics industry are avilable through National Safety Training Services with the content tailored to the needs of the business and the individual.
