/EINPresswire.com/ UK (submitpressrelease123.com - press release) Staff at a Chester motor finance firm have been told that the company is to go full-throttle on a new drive to encourage lifetime learning.
Its message came as ten more employees at The Funding Corporation were announced in January as having gained an enhanced NVQ Level 3 after being sponsored by the firm.
Now, the Chester Business Park company hopes that even more of its near-200 workers will sign up to free courses, and this
week arranged a special presentation of the options available.
It was delivered in conjunction with training specialists Joint Learning of Southport, Merseyside.
The courses all lead to formally recognised qualifications, and range from business administration and sales professionalism to contact centre skills and team leadership.
Meanwhile, congratulation were issued to the most recent staff gaining exam passes, most of which were in "customer service" at NVQ Level 3 with additional certification in technical skills.
The enhanced NVQ qualification is approximately equivalent to two A-Levels.
The successful candidates' ages of between 20 and 45 showed how everyone can stand to benefit from lifetime learning, according The Funding Corporation's Senior Training Officer Dawn Crank:
"For established employees, formal training often provides a new perspective on their work - and new staff, of course, also benefit from gaining new skills and a transferable qualification.
"There is always a high level of enthusiasm for these courses as the positive feedback given by candidates often inspires others to take up the challenge," commented Ms Crank.
In addition to NVQs, she said, The Funding Corporation also sponsors other staff to study for academic and professional qualifications right up to university degree level.
As well as training its own staff, The Funding Corporation operates an outreach programme which provides work and study opportunities to local youngsters in full-time education.
The company has links with both West Cheshire College and the University of Chester to enable students to take part in business challenges and to benefit from work placements.
