Don’t let unspent training budget break your heart

12 February 2010

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and for those of you who are not expecting cards and flowers let our training team come to the rescue!

The team have come up with a way for you to spend your training budget and make your staff feel loved this February the 14th as you give them the skills they need to get the most out of their job in 2010/11.

As the new financial year approaches, are you in danger of losing any unspent training budget from 2009/10?  It’s crucial to make sure your staff remain efficient in the trying economic climate, so why not invest in a flexible Training Voucher, which allows you to use this year’s unspent budget to pay for next year’s training needs? 

Simply use your unspent training budget to purchase a Training Voucher, for any amount.  We will invoice you for payment in this financial year and you can then use your Training Voucher to cover the cost of training your staff whenever you wish during 2010/11.  Your Training Voucher is valid for any of our courses, including both regional and bespoke training options.

To purchase a Training Voucher click here.  For more information, contact a member of the Training team on 01942 612604 or email training@keepbritaintidy.org.

We don’t want you to think we’re being unromantic, we’re happy to do all the chasing! Did you know that we can deliver all our quality courses at your place of work?  Whilst both the weather and travel expense cutbacks are bleak this Valentine season, there’s never been a better time to play hard to get and let us come to you to deliver training. 

The good news is that we are offering discounts on bespoke enforcement training and the majority of other courses, with up to 30% off* if you book an in-house course to be delivered before the end of the financial year 2009.

Bespoke, in-house training not only offers more accessible training at your workplace (or a venue of your choice) but the majority of our courses can be tailored to tackle local issues and to meet your specific requirements.  In-house training is also very cost-effective, cuts out travel and accommodation expenses, and you can train 8-20* staff at the same time, and to the same level for a one-off cost.   In addition, it provides an opportunity for your staff to get together and discuss any issues relevant to their roles.
