How can we help?

We want to help you train and sustain a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce that makes a contribution to the success of your business. We work with businesses of all sizes across Northamptonshire to analyse training needs, identify relevant qualifications and deliver the training.

We can help you gain access to government funding to get your team qualified. We can find candidates for your vacancies and help you plug the skills gaps in your business.

Talk to us about your workforce issues and we’ll do all we can to help.

We want to hear from you if:

  • You have an unfilled vacancy for an apprentice
  • You would be willing to offer work experience placements to our students
  • You have staff in need of additional skills, including maths and English
  • You are seeking a solution to a skills gap in your sector.

The Business Centre can help you to achieve your business goals through making sure that the talent within your workforce is released to achieve its full potential. Employees perform best when they are motivated and engaged. True engagement can be achieved by involving employees in the design of training programmes, whether these are accredited qualifications or bespoke workplace programmes.

Effective training for your employees can lead to:

  • Improved productivity
  • Reduced costs
  • Better customer engagement

We can help by:
