Short Course Client Testimonial;  

“As a charity we have a limited training budget it is difficult to identify affordable, relevant training for our team. The Skills Brokerage Team recommended a fully funded short course in Leadership and Management. The course was exactly what I was looking to support our new Charity Shop Managers transition into a Management / Leadership role. It was local so accessible and at one day a week fitted in their other responsibilities.  Both managers have grown in confidence. They are eager to learn more and further develop their skills in leading and managing shop staff and volunteers.”   

Emma Power, Scheme Manager at Home-Start Watford & Three Rivers

As a result of completing the workshops and the employer reviewing next steps, the two candidates are now signing up to apprenticeship programmes
