Information for Employers

There is a wide range of training opportunities available through Huish that ensures there is an appropriate way that you and your staff can engage in learning.

To decide the most suitable approach to training for you, our advisers will work with you to develop a training plan.

A range of Distance Learning options are provided allowing your employees to complete work at their own pace and in their own workplace or at home. Typically these programmes are around 12 weeks in length and are supported by nine hours of individual tutor support. Learners can gain qualifications, whilst minimising disruption to the workplace.

Bespoke Training may meet specific requirements raised in your training needs analysis carried out by our Business Development Advisers in partnership with you. These courses do not always lead to qualifications but will help to develop skills and knowledge of yourself and your staff.

Training and developing your employees can help your business stay ahead of the competition. This could be through mastering new technology, maximising the use of IT, improving customer service or working towards professional qualifications.

If you would like to discuss your business needs with a member of staff please contact Business@huish.ac.uk or call 01823 424603.
