Training plans have come together all of a sudden after weeks of work in the way that these things do. After weeks of debating needs and suitabilities and looking at limited in house resources, we now have a plan for year ahead, which is focused, easy to carry out and in budget. (Not that the latter will stop me investigating possibilities of grants with training needs provider from Business Link when they visit in a couple of weeks! Suspect that we might get a bit for management training and not much else as don’t want to launch NVQs till next year and that paperwork may be more onerous than grant is worth but we shall see).
Like so much we are doing though, this now seems eminently do-able, and indeed already partly booked in and therefore we can believe that this will be achieved rather than just be something we are always talking about. The difference it is going to make to both myself, left hand and indeed staff, to see all these plans become reality should be fantastic for morale come the autumn. Very, very positive stuff.
