All businesses want to improve the effectiveness of their staff, increase productivity, and ultimately enhance profitability. One of the best ways to do this is to improve the training support you offer staff to help them develop their skills and experience. The more skilled your team, the more rewarded and challenged they feel, and the better equipped they are to bring in more business, embrace change and target new markets.

GWLAD will provide significant improvements to workforce skills and capabilities, through a portfolio of accredited work-based learning programmes to support the ongoing professional development of employees. Delivery of modules will include lecture time at the place of work, tutor support, self-guided study and assessment. This flexible programme is individualised and will work with your enterprise to develop and tailor courses in response to your employee intermediate and higher skills needs through accrediting staff development programmes, experiential learning and developing specific module content to meet your requirements.

We have courses available covering such topics as Leadership, Marketing, Coaching & Mentoring, Mindfulness, HR and Sustainability.

GWLAD will subsidise between 50-70% towards the cost of the courses. The cost will be £25 per credit for self employed, micro, small, medium and large enterprises. GWLAD will operate in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Neath Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire and Swansea.
