Every year we help to prepare more than 20,000 people to enter the workplace or progress their careers via our extensive range of programmes and educational pathways.

We work with more than 2,000 businesses to identify the training needs of their future employees or to upskill the staff they already have.

Whether that’s upskilling people in things like maths and English, more extensive training via one of our apprenticeships, or through one of our Institute of Leadership Management (ILM) courses. We can offer something to employees at all levels, helping them to add value to your business and save you money in the long term, bypassing the need to recruit because your staff don’t have the skills you need.

We can also work with you to continually monitor and assess your staffs development and training needs via continual professional development and in-reach to your business.

And feedback we have from business partners is that this approach to nurturing current staff pays off, with businesses that work proactively in these areas seeing better levels of staff retention.

By investing in training, you make your staff feel valued, important and makes them more invested in the success of your business. However, failing to help your employees to develop and grow could lead to them looking for opportunities elsewhere.

This could be an expensive exercise when you factor in the cost of recruitment and time it takes to find the right employee in a market place with record levels of employment and a growing skills gap.

Main product offerings include:

  • Apprenticeships
  • Business management qualifications (ILM)
  • Professional courses
  • CPD
  • Access to industry standard training spaces

Training really is an opportunity for everyone

Daff explains how her company partners with Activate Learning to provide training opportunities.

“We deliver hour-long interactive sessions either on campus or at our offices that include presentations, anonymised case studies and questions that we put to students to get a debate going.

“We’ve provided masterclasses for law students on social media and employment law, clinical negligence and family law, but we’ve also looked at how to deal with travel insurance claims with travel and tourism learners.”
