From 6 April 2010, approximately 11 million employees in Great Britain will have a new right to request ‘time to train’.
This will be extended to cover employees in all businesses from 6 April 2011.
Employees’ requests can be to undertake accredited programmes leading to a qualification, or for unaccredited training to help them develop specific skills relevant to their job, workplace or business
As an employer, you are required to consider any requests and respond within a set time frame
Brighter Directions can help, as a approved supplier working with Business Link East Midlands, we work with you to identify the key areas with a training needs analysis of staff.
This saves you time and money by only concentrating on the real skills needed for the position and company to benefit.
There is still funding of up to £1,000 available to use towards the cost of our services, please ask us about eligibility.
