Professional Updating, Employability & Apprenticeship Support
Whether you are an individual looking to update your work-related skills or an employer who needs affordable, relevant training for your staff and apprentices we can provide a tailored curriculum that will fit your needs with blended learning options available for maximum delivery flexibility.
Keeping your staff up-to-date with current industry best practice and ensuring your apprentices are well trained in it is key to maintaining competitive edge and customer responsiveness. We are able to offer flexible, 'on-demand' short courses for individuals, small or large groups covering a wide range of essential professional skills and development needs. All input can be contextualised to meet your company's needs.
Among the short courses available in our professional updating portfolio are:
- Equality and diversity
- Safeguarding your learners
- Supporting learners with learning difficulties and disabilities
- Presentation skills
- Communication skills
- Challenge management
- Transactional analysis
- Social media for business
- Time management and organisational skills
- Successful staff induction
- Numeracy, literacy and IT skills short courses.
We are also able to customise any of the above input or offer training in other, related areas on demand.
Spotting potential and recruiting an apprentice is an excellent first step to grow you company's skills base. That's just the beginning of the process, however, as it's important to support and develop these new additions to your company.
Real Time Education can help you develop your staff so that they can effectively train and support your apprentices as well as providing key training for the apprentices themselves.
For more information on how we can help you support your apprentices, see the Employability Skills and Professional Updating sections below and visit the pages on Mentoring and Coaching and Trainer Training.
