Business First, the commercial arm of Swindon College, has a long tradition of supporting employers to develop their workforce locally, regionally and nationally. Our aim is to help you maximise the potential within your staff and, in doing so, develop a highly skilled workforce that make a positive impact on your business.
We specialise in helping organisations gain a competitive advantage through our bespoke training solutions. We do this by using our unique process known as the ‘Customer Journey.’ This gives you peace of mind knowing that any training you do is directly related to achieving key business objectives.
This direct impact approach can ensure your teams work more effectively, customer service levels improve and ultimately you maintain and achieve more business.
We have a dedicated team of specialist staff who help identify the ways in which training and development can best have an impact on performance and will work with you to design flexible programmes that are appropriate to all levels of your workforce.
Often funding is available to help subsidise or even pay for the cost of your training, particularly with Apprenticeships and NVQs in the workplace. Our Sales Account Managers can advise on how to access these sources of funding.
We work in partnership with approximately 1000 employers and they tell us that they have experienced positive impacts on their business, including:
- Increased profitability
- Improved employee retention and morale
- Expanding productivity
- Increased quality of products and services
- Decreased expenditure
- Heightened company profile
- Improved customer service
- Enhanced performance.
We look forward to working with you.
