Train to Gain Helpline & The Employers Guide to Training

As part of the Government's Solutions for Business initiative, the Train to Gain skills brokerage service has now come together with Business Link. Although the skills brokerage service is nothing new, the fact that it is now combined with Business Link means that employers can go to one source to gain details about all of the government support available to them.

Employers can call the Train to Gain enquiry line on 0800 015 55 45 to talk to a local broker who will give advice about their training needs, what training is on offer, direct them to suitable local training providers and explain how to access funding. Employers can also contact the normal Business Link helpline on 0845 600 9006

Employers can also make use of the on line Employers Guide to Training (EGT), which is provided by the Learning and Skills Council. The EGT is part of the National Learning Directory, the UK's biggest training database. Organisations can search for training providers by key word, area and a host of other parameters and gain details of the courses as well as the provider. The search results will show whether the provider has achieved the Training Quality Standard and whether the course is available under Train to Gain.  The site also provides links on the home page to Apprenticeships, Training Quality Standard, Sector Skills Councils and National Skills Academy websites, and.an on line form for employers to contact the Train to Gain skills brokerage service.

The EGT is an excellent tool and makes finding training an awful lot easier for employers. The LSC has asked providers to keep their entries up to date, so as long as everyone complies, this resource will be a saviour to many organisations.

Access the regional employer guides to training via the lsc website or access the main site direct at www10.employersguide.org.uk
