The Dorset Training Academy at Weymouth College has been launched specifically to continue the partnership between business and education into the workforce at all levels – enhancing and providing the knowledge and skills that Dorset’s workforce needs to continue to contribute to the economic growth and productivity of the businesses within our region.
At Weymouth College we are always willing to think differently, embrace new models of learning, develop strong and close ties with local businesses and employers, and operate in ways which will provide our students with the skills necessary to contribute to the economic growth and productivity of our region
A partnership between business and education
We firmly believe that partnership between business and education is the way forward to secure the best career options and future opportunities for our students.
But why should that partnership stop when our students enter the workplace. In-work training is a prime opportunity to expand the knowledge base of all employees – both new starters and established workers – ensure enterprise success and bolster employee work satisfaction.
The Importance of high quality and appropriate workforce training
In Dorset we have a varied and talented workforce and a commitment – as an employer – to train and support that workforce as they grow will help your business to:
- Stay ahead of the competition
- Recognise and address weaknesses and skills gaps
- Offer in-work progression opportunities
- Grow and maintain knowledge and skills
- Increase job satisfaction – investment in training shows commitment and support
- Create an economy that keeps the talent of Dorset in Dorset businesses
The range of training courses available is constantly growing – it could be a simple information seminar for all staff or a bespoke training offering for an individual worker – our range of courses are entirely flexible.
