Business-focused training and apprenticeship advice in Hastings and Rother
Dee brings a wealth of knowledge to the consultancy role having:
- managed recruitment, academy and quality teams during 10 successful years at Hastings Direct
- run a small, community-based media company in Hastings town centre, and
- worked with local schools and colleges in preparing young people for the world of work
These experiences mean Dee is perfectly placed to listen, understand and offer solutions to businesses keen to evolve and grow by developing local people in work.
Dee is also available to offer impartial apprenticeship advice in Hastings and Rother schools – giving young people a thorough understanding of what it takes to access a high-quality apprenticeship programme and how to be proactive in securing an opportunity.
“I’m really looking forward to getting started. The SupplyTrain ethos is that good work-based training helps businesses, people and communities. By understanding what local businesses need from their staff, we can show how to implement funded training that works. This in turn, saves companies money, whilst creating skilled work opportunities for the next generation here in Hastings and Rother.”
Phil Golding, Managing Director, says:
“It’s great to have Dee on board. SupplyTrain has supplied training advice to over 100 businesses via consultancy, telephone and partnership support in the last two years. To now be in a position to offer free, face-to-face support to businesses on our doorstep is fantastic progress and testament to the quality of advice we give.
“The rate of apprenticeship opportunities for 16-24 year olds in Hastings is well below the national average. We hope that having Dee offering employers impartial apprenticeship advice in Hastings – demonstrating the financial case for ‘growing your own’ – will have an enormous impact on the opportunities for young people in the town and surrounding area.”
SupplyTrain is a social enterprise keen to make a difference to local communities. Our impartial training advice is free to businesses that employ less than 50 people. Larger companies pay for consultancy, but will see a substantial return on investment. Any surplus we make will go back into supporting apprentices in Hastings and Rother.
