In the current financial downturn we realise that most businesses are mindful of costs, and in some cases training is normally the first cost that will be cut. STOP!!! Without training how will your staff develop, flourish, and support the growth of your business.
Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ) are an excellent way of helping your staff gain a recognised qualification whilst at work. There are SVQ's available for all departments and for all levels of staff. To put a member of staff through a SVQ normally would cost anything from £1500 - £3000 depending on the qualification. To help our members carry on developing their staff and improving the Industry we have developed a 20+ pilot for staff over 20 years old. This pilot is heavily subsidised by Hospitality Training and a SVQ will now cost UNDER £1000; which spread over a year is excellent value for money. Even better news, if you have staff under 20 years of age we can still gain full funding for them, meaning NO FINANCIAL outlay for you at all.
Remember all staff earning under £22,000 could get an Individual Learning Account giving them £200 towards training and development, check out the website www.ilascotland.org.uk.
