"No train, no gain"

This is the headline of a report published on today’s issue of ‘Metro’, on the London Education section (page 19). The article talks about Train to Gain – a government service that aims to improve companies’ skills sets. This scheme works by providing organisations with the services of a skills broker, whose job is to identify the training needs within the organisation, find training companies that offer these courses, and help with funding information. Maven Training is on the verge of becoming a part of this scheme – both by having a broker analyse our own training needs (we are meeting the broker at 1pm, exciting!), and also by being one of the training organisations on their list, which we already are: on one of our courses this week there is a delegate whose training has been sponsored by the organisation he works in, and funding was helped by Train to Gain. We’ll leave him to his course (he’s got to concentrate on the exams!), but expect an interview to talk about the benefits of this scheme very soon!
