NCC hosts Business Improvement workshops

01 June, 2011

To help equip construction businesses with the skills that they need to survive and thrive in the current financial climate, the National Construction College (NCC) – the direct training division of CITB-ConstructionSkills – is hosting a series of Business Improvement workshops throughout the UK.
The workshops have been designed to help managers, contractors and owners of small and medium sized firms (SMEs) strengthen their businesses with a number of measures that are fundamental to future survival. Delegates will learn how other businesses are coping in these tough times, as well as focusing on key topics such as marketing, selling and customer service, business finance, legal compliance and business plans.
Responding to industry needs
Andy Walder, director of the National Construction College (NCC), said: “As Europe’s largest construction training provider we work closely with employers to meet their training needs, and pride ourselves on delivering specialist training that will give businesses a competitive edge to help them succeed and grow. These workshops have been developed after listening to industry and responding to its needs. They will help businesses through these challenging times so that they have the skills they need now and in the future, and are in the best position possible to take advantage of and maximise opportunities.”
Following the workshop, four further one day courses will be available for businesses to help them identify simple changes that can be made to ensure greater profitability and legal compliance in this area. These include:
·         Marketing, selling and customer service.
·        Business finance.
·        The legal issues.
·        Creating and using a business plan to help you manage the business.
With a long-standing reputation and experienced staff, the NCC is well placed to deliver the skills training needs of the Construction and Built Environment sector. The NCC delivers quality and affordable courses at eight sites and additional training venues for up to 25,000 learners each year. The College works with employers to provide both bespoke and specialist training, in addition to producing a wide selection of first class learning materials to complement training courses.
