Step 1 – Training Needs Analysis

We will talk to you to find out which areas of your business would benefit from staff development.

The training programme can include accredited and non-accredited training and can cover multiple training needs.


  • Management
  • Customer Service
  • Project Management
  • Communication
  • Personal Development
  • Computer Skills

Step 2 – Accessing Funding

We just need to check that:

  • The training is not something that you are legally obliged to provide.
  • Delegates will be aged 19+ and are in paid employment (part-time or full-time).

We will complete the funding documentation for you.

Step 3 – Registration

Delegates will need to complete an enrolment form and provide:

  • Proof of existence (copy of passport, birth certificate or national ID card)
  • Proof of employment (pay slip or contract)
  • Proof of address (usually driving licence or utility bill)
  • Evidence of level of learning (completed initial assessments or copies of relevant certificates).

Help and support with this process is provided and there is a flexible format to assist.

Step 4 – Training Programme Delivery

Course delivery is flexible and will be designed to meet the needs of your business.  It can include full days or a modular format.

Courses can be accessed on-line or can be delivered in-company, at the College or at an agreed venue provided by you.

Step 5 – Evaluation and Follow Up

As part of the funding requirement you will be asked to provide written evidence of impact from the training e.g. a letter or a change to a job description.
