City College Plymouth develops bespoke training programme

City College Plymouth has developed a bespoke training programme to meet the needs of a local employer.

Plymouth Community Homes (PCH), which is responsible for the maintenance of social housing stock in the city, needed to train 50 tradespeople from their maintenance and repair department.

In order for PCH’s maintenance staff to achieve a greater range of skills, the College developed the bespoke course, which included tiling, plastering, plumbing, carpentry and kitchen and bathroom fitting.

Ian Frazer, Head of Building and Technical Services, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside City College Plymouth to train our workforce.

“PCH is committed to investing in its staff so that we can deliver flexible and high quality services to residents.”

Mike Jones, from the College’s Employer Response Team said: “This programme of training highlights the positive working relationship that the College has with employers – we understand their business needs and are flexible and responsive to meeting them.”

“This programme will now be rolled out to other property management companies and the College has worked hard to ensure the needs of the employer have been met at every stage.”

If you are an employer interested in training your staff, please call 01752 305026 to find out more.
