Skills for life
We’re committed to offering any of our people who need it the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications in literacy and numeracy. We demonstrated this by re affirming our commitment to the National Skills Pledge at the House of Commons.
Our skills programme
We now have one of the largest Skills for Life programmes in the country. This helps our people gain vital skills and qualifications in literacy and numeracy. It’s there for any employees who haven’t previously had the opportunity get qualified or who didn’t excel in an education environment.
Over 1,000 people with new skills
Our programme has now celebrated the success of over 1,000 employees achieving a Skills for Life qualification in literacy or numeracy.
The Skills for Life programme is also part of our apprenticeship programme.
Our Good Together commitment
As part of our Good Together corporate responsibility programme, we’re committed to over 3,000 of our people achieving or working towards qualifications through the apprenticeship or skills for life programme by 2011/12.
