  4. 4. 1 CASE STUDIES WSR undertook a skills audit of existing staff. The WSR is fortunate to have over 1300 volunteers, working across the entire service, so they are able to recruit people with a passion for the industry. When they do need to recruit externally WSR has a strong brand and is well thought of locally. Funding training is always a challenge and the WSR takes advantage of training grants and subsidies when they are available. Their training plan prioritises needs. They source training from Somerset Skills & Learning in business skills and management training. Sometimes releasing staff for training is difficult, but mostly on the job training and a flexible attitude resolves any issues. Keeping up to date with new technology has been challenging - essential for a 21st century business, but not always in tune with their steam engines. The WSR works with local agencies e.g. West Somerset Council, Somerset County Council, Chamber of Commerce and the National Apprenticeship Service. They also sit on local commerce and skills boards and network with drivers and influencers of the local economy and are part of the local decision making process. WSR advice to other employers: “Build a rapport with your training provider. Trust and understanding is key to a successful training partnership. Regularly review management and training plans to ensure staff have the relevant skills to cope with change. They feel trusted and valued that we have invested in their training and they remain loyal to us. Our staff turnover is low.” The WSR has worked with Somerset Skills & Learning (SS&L) since 2005. WSR also work with other training providers. During this time the Railway has grown from a local business into one of the largest tourist attractions in the South-West. They needed staff to gain new skills across a range of business functions to be able to better serve their customer base and manage volunteers and promote their business. Through a combination of formal qualifications, apprenticeships and short courses they have developed a dynamic workforce. The West Somerset Railway (WSR) has steamed ahead with training support from SS&L 2
  5. 5. 3 CASE STUDIES To ensure they were compliant with CQC requirements they had to demonstrate staff were sufficiently skilled and trained to deliver packages of care to individuals with learning disabilities. They were already aware of the skilled staff working for Somerset Skills & Learning (SS&L) from their previous experience of working in partnership with them, for this reason they did not consider approaching any other organisation to assist them in this area. SS&L were able to assist their understanding of the new QCF training framework and were able to help develop and design qualifications which were relevant to specific grades of staff which relates to their roles and responsibilities. SS&L were willing to weave their internal policies and procedures into their training delivery thereby ensuring they were able to cement training into practice and evidence real changes to the delivery of services experienced by their customers. SS&L were able to respond flexibly and change the content of the training to meet the specific needs of LD Services. At regular review meetings with SS&L LD Services were able to identify any staff who required additional support to continue or complete their training. In addition to QCF support, SS&L have been working with LD Services to utilise government funding and non - funding delivery to maximise training opportunities and development for their staff. The following programmes are currently being delivered across Somerset or starting soon; Apprenticeships in Health & Social Care at Levels 2 & 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care at Levels 2, 3 & 5 Shift Leaders Certificate in Care Level 2 LD Services also have a timetable for staff to train in Dementia care, and have agreed to fully fund the Higher Apprenticeship in Leadership & Management at Level 5 for key staff. LD Services advice to other employers: “I would recommend seeking advice from SS&L as they are able to provide a professional and flexible service. It enabled us to provide training specific to the grade and role of staff.” LD Services wanted to introduce the new QCF Diplomas to replace the NVQ qualifications. They required skilled support to understand the new qualification framework. Somerset County Council’s Learning Disability Team (LD Services) ensure they stay compliant with CQC requirements by using SS&L to train their staff and apprentices DawnGraham.StrategicManager–LDServices
  6. 6. 4 What are the benefits? l Motivated Staff l Higher Productivity l Reduced costs l Increased Employee Satisfaction l Increased Competitiveness l Improved Quality of Work l Higher Staff Retention l Stronger Career Progression We can offer help and support to employers and people throughout the stages of an apprenticeship programme, working with you to successfully train your staff. Your business could be one of thousands across Somerset to benefit from providing a young person or an adult with valuable training opportunities. No matter how big or small your organisation you know how hard it can be to find employees with the right skills and motivation. If you take on an apprentice you can be sure he or she will develop the skills you need to be tuned into your business. The training will soon reap rewards as they begin to prove themselves by making a real contribution to your business. Apprenticeships What apprenticeships do we currently offer? l Business Skills l Business Improvement Techniques l Children and Young People l Construction Trades l Customer Service l Dental Nursing l Engineering l Exercise and Fitness l Health & Social Care l Hospitality Services l Learning & Development l Leisure – Fitness Instructor l Leisure Operations l Leisure – Outdoor Pursuits l Management l Manufacturing l Plumbing l Professional Cookery l Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools l Team Leading l Warehousing, Storage and Logistics
  7. 7. 5 Which people can I employ? You may already be employing people who are not undergoing any formal training. You may want to take on a school or college leaver, keen to learn from scratch or sometimes your business may benefit from a person who has already gained some knowledge and experience of life or a full time programme. We can work with you to find the best solutions for your business. “I hope to ‘do business’ with you again as you have been very helpful, professional and supportive in delivering Manufacturing QCFs, thank you for your dedication.” Mendip Care & Repair How long will the apprenticeship take? The length of time to complete a (Level 2) Apprenticeship is usually between 12 and 18 months. This depends on the experience of the apprentice and the occupational area undertaken, as well as the requirements of your business and the specific tasks the apprentice will be carrying out. To achieve an Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3), which further develops the knowledge and skills obtained at a Level 2, a maximum of 20 months of study in total will be required, depending on the sector undertaken. Please note that SS&L staff will discuss the projected time span of training with you at the start of the programme. Will there be a lot of work for me to set it up? You employ the person and ensure that they have supervised guidance at work and we take care of the rest; l Place your vacancy ‘for free’ on the online Apprenticeship Vacancy System l Indentify suitable candidates l Carry out initial assessments and candidate interviews l Liaise with SS&L tutors/assessors to set up the programme l Support employer and apprentice throughout the process “The assessor and all staff that I have been in contact with at SS&L are all very efficient. The work my apprentices have done with SS&L has helped greatly with their roles at work. I would recommend SS&L to others.” YMCA Pre-School TheRecruitmentTeam
  8. 8. 6 Traineeships What is a Traineeship? Traineeships can last up to six months and include: Work preparation training; English and maths support if required; A work experience placement of six weeks to five months with an employer; In addition to these basic elements, you and the training provider can add flexible additional content to meet the needs of your business and the local labour market. What are the benefits of offering Traineeships? Traineeships have been developed in response to research showing that young people frequently lack the knowledge and experience employers expect in the workplace. Traineeships will help to tackle this problem, while benefiting businesses in the following ways: l You as an employer can design a high quality Traineeship within your company in partnership with a training provider – one that suits both the needs of your business and the needs of the trainee. l You can get ahead of the competition by bringing enthusiastic young people with their fresh ideas into your business before they get on to the job ladder. l Traineeships will allow you to shape the skills and experience of young people from your local community, helping your business to develop a loyal and talented workforce. l Working with trainees will give established staff members the chance to develop their skills in mentoring and coaching young people. l If you decide to offer a trainee an Apprenticeship you could be eligible for an Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of £1500* What will my business need to provide? Your company will need to provide a high quality work experience placement for the trainee. Work experience placements should be: l Substantial and meaningful, providing a real workplace experience. l A structured opportunity for the young person, matched to their areas of interest and aspiration, where they engage in purposeful work related learning activities rather than observation. l Long enough to allow for the development and thorough embedding of new skills and behaviours. Are there any financial costs to offering Traineeships? All training costs are met by Government funding. Employers are not required to pay young people taking part in Traineeships but are encouraged to support trainees with expenses such as meals and travel. * Accurate at time of going to print How do I get started with Traineeships? Call 01278 426828 or email busdevall@somerset.gov.uk Traineeships are a stepping stone to future success for young people, businesses and the wider economy.
