Personal Development and Employability

The Skills Network are proud to be the chosen trading provider for an ever-increasing number of training and development companies, and organisations within the personal development and employability sector.

We have supported over 150 training, employability or personal development focused organisations with their learning and development – either through our distance learning qualifications, or by providing accredited published educational resources. We have worked closely with training providers such as Construction Training Academy (CTA), BBE Training, HRUK, Training Link and Green Labyrinth.

We harness our industry expertise and intelligent understanding of learning experience to support organisations to achieve high quality outcomes for their clientele and service users, and their own staff.

We have worked closely with Complete Training and Assessment (CTA) to deliver a training and learning solution that has enabled them to significantly improve the quality of their training provisions.

As of June 2018, we have upskilled over 300 members of Complete Training and Assessment (CTA) staff in our Level 2 Certificate in Awareness of Mental Health Problems and Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Autism qualifications, amongst others.

We have worked with CTA on a bespoke basis by providing classroom delivery around predetermined guided learning hours, alongside our paper-based distance learning resources.

Don't just take our word for it

Karon Goodman
Director at Complete Training and Assessment

‘Through the collaborative working arrangements with The Skills Network, we’ve been able to broaden and deepen our impact as the provider of choice to the largest care provider for independent individuals with learning disabilities in the North West.

The quality of the learning materials, combined with the support made available from the TSN team, ensures the very best learning experience and most appropriate delivery model for each and every individual is made available. The Skills Network provides a truly learner-led approach that other training providers can only aspire to.

The broad range of qualifications, flexibility of learning and depth of knowledge contained within the supporting materials is superb. Prompt and robust feedback is just a given, happening seamlessly as each learner progresses.

These facts, along with the unparalleled levels of learner accessibility to the learning materials in the format and media of their choice, are just why we enjoy our collaborative working arrangement so much.’

    James Punch
    Level 2 Certificate in Equality and Diversity

    “I have truly enjoyed completing the Level 2 Certificate in Equality and Diversity... I found it very interesting and informative as it went into detail surrounding terminology and the law. My favourite part was looking at the different types of discrimination and that people can discriminate without realising that it is negative. I am using this knowledge on a daily basis within my work setting by empowering others and sharing the knowledge that I gained. I look forward to the next qualification that I complete with The Skills Network.”
