What is the SME Workforce Programme
We support SMEs by helping them reach their full potential. We want you to have the resources to build a strong, resilient workforce. We understand that SME’s need to reskill their workforces to support business recovery in response to Covid-19 and we want to ensure your business is equipped to meet the needs of tomorrow.
Our SME Workforce programme provides fully-funded workplace training to boost employee skills and help employers increase productivity. Your business can become more efficient and sustainable and find new avenues for growth.
Why upskill your staff with SME Workforce?
- increase staff loyalty and reduce staff turnover
- support increased business performance
Developing skills to address your business needs
We offer various qualifications at Levels 1–3, so your employees can learn new skills that can enable your business to adapt and respond to economic changes. Our fully-funded courses can address your business’ specific needs.
Courses include, but are not limited to:
- Team Leader Operations
- Business Administration
- Principles of Customer Service
- Principles of Team Leading
Training activities are delivered to have a limited impact on the daily business routines and is intended to support your SME to grow its skills base – in both sector-specific skills and through more generic skills such as STEM, Leadership and Management and Basic Skills.
We will deliver training through a blended approach. This includes 1:1 sessions*, in-workplace sessions, e-learning, and wider self-study. This seeks to reduce disruption and ensure that business activities within the SME are not affected.
Our Tutors will work with employees to plan and deliver training across the SMEs, using a blend of learning approaches. They also deliver the final evaluation session.
