Gloucestershire College guiding the way through training options

Gloucestershire College is helping to steer people through the maze of training options available with a guide to its services and apprenticeship courses.

Available for download, the Gloucestershire College Professional Training Guide contains information on the courses available for local businesses and their employees.

They cover areas including:

  • Accountancy
  • Business admin and customer services
  • HR
  • IT and cyber
  • Leadership and management
  • Marketing

Courses, which range from half-day short courses to longer-term development programmes and higher level qualifications, are taught by the college's network of industry experts and are tailored to match the goals of an organisation.

The college's dedicated Business Hub team will work with businesses to:

  • Choose the best training programmes for employees.
  • Tailor the delivery of the training.
  • Make the most of available funding.
  • Recruit new apprentices to fill skills gaps in a business.

Gloucester College chief financial officer and vice principal Andy Bates said: "For many organisations, recent months have seen increased demand for their services while for others the focus has simply been survival.

"As we start to emerge from the restrictions of 2020, I encourage all local businesses to take a look inside their organisations and reflect on the skills they will need to prosper in 2021 and beyond."

He continued: "Our job at the college is to ensure local organisations in Gloucestershire have got the skills they need to enable their businesses to grow' whether it's equipping the younger generation coming through with the right skills to help enable that growth or upskilling existing workforces to match with expanding demands in industry.

"There is a great deal of financial support available to help companies of any size bring the skills they need into their workforce including apprenticeship grants and government funded short courses.

"I am confident this will go some way towards helping Gloucestershire come back stronger."
