When it comes to training, you have two options. You can can spend time at generic training programmes, or you can attend an accredited programme that you know will truly benefit you.
As we’ve partnered with NCFE, you can probably guess that we prefer the second approach!
NCFE is a leading provider of educational services that has been at the forefront of technical and vocational education for over 170 years. Klass Academy is an Approved International NCFE Centre and our courses are Accredited by NCFE at Level 2 and Level 4. Klass Academy has NCFE accredited courses for individuals and companies, and we also custom design blended training programmes for larger teams.
Here are 5 major benefits of accredited training according to NCFE:
A stamp of approval
Having your training accredited by a nationally recognised Awarding Organisation is a stamp of approval which can enhance the value of your training. It gives you recognition for the quality and robustness of your training programmes, and offering accredited training shows your learners that you really support their learning and development.
Increase staff retention
Mutual loyalty and support between a company or employer and their employee is more likely to develop if that employer demonstrates a want and a willingness to provide opportunities for further skills and learning development for their employees.
Improve staff skills
Accredited training can be utilised to shore up specific soft skills or technical skills that your staff require for their role, or can be utilised as an improvement tool for staff to improve general company-wide soft skills. Employers then have a pool of talented, skillful staff armed with the relevant tools and knowledge to go above and beyond in their job role.
Bespoke to suit you
Many off-the-shelf training programmes are broad in nature, and may contain aspects of learning that are not relevant or appropriate. By developing your own training, you’re able to tailor all aspects of the training to suit the needs of the environment and your employees. Assessment methods, delivery methods, learning outcomes and variations in learning styles are all components of training that you can tailor and adapt in order to make your training right for you and your employees.
Acknowledgement of achievement
Most of the time internal training is just that; you attend a workshop or a training day, leave with further knowledge, but nothing tangible to acknowledge the learning you have undertaken. Accredited training provides the option of developing and providing learners with a certificate of completion or a certificate of achievement to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have gained.
