Employers, Tailored training

Charlotte is the Employment Liaison Coordinator, responsible for the APM side of the partnership between APM, Bella Italia and Train Together. This collaboration has created a sector-based work academy, using the strengths of each organisation – Bella Italia providing work experience; Train Together providing the training, development and organisation of the programme; and APM the referrals, on-going support and awareness days.

“We spent six months planning and preparing the programme,” explains Charlotte, “and that was so important. The team at Train Together were really well organised and very thorough – all the up-front work really paid off. They created a very comprehensive training package with the right materials, schedules and tools.”

The programme involved three weeks’ classroom-based training with Train Together tutors plus work experience and interviews at Bella Italia. Charlotte was particularly impressed with the alternative methods of learning that Train Together incorporated into the package.

“This was my first experience working with Train Together and also on this type of collaboration and it’s been extremely positive. Communication was excellent; they were highly efficient and their delivery and follow-up were very good. I definitely plan to repeat the programme.”

“Train Together really understood how individuals have different learning preferences. To help those who were not comfortable with the more traditional forms of learning, Train Together used video and audio recordings to support this and help them through the coursework. The team developed a really good rapport with the learners, keeping them motivated and engaged throughout. I attended the day at the Outdoor Pursuit Centre which focussed on teambuilding and it was an excellent day!
