Partnership Working is the way forward…

Following government decisions in relation to departmental responsibilities,
Apprenticeship funding streams have been rationalised to provide a smaller
management base for the Skills Agency Contract Managers.  Small companies such as ours have been required to enter a new era in terms of contract management and to this end we are pleased to announce that we have chosen to form a Partnership with Chamber Training (Humber) Ltd.  Our decision to do this is based upon the quality, credibility and sustainability of Chamber Training and an excellent working relationship already in place.

As an Employer (or learner) you will experience no change in current practices and delivery however, The Skills Funding Agency will continue to seek your opinion through the Framework for Excellence surveys and our Recruitment Manager will guide you through this process if necessary.

We feel that the Partnership with Chamber Training will provide a solid platform for moving forward and delivering quality training across the Humber sub region and we hope we can enjoy the continued support of you – our valued Employers.

Apprenticeships – We’re with the programme!

Have you got stars in your eyes?  The National Apprenticeship Service is looking for Apprentices who would like a moment of fame.

HBP Systems Recognised as part of National Apprenticeships Week 2011

As part of National Apprenticeship Week 2011 SouthBank Training Ltd have presented IT specialists HBP Systems Ltd of Scunthorpe with an award that recognises their work with apprentices and young people within the workplace. There have been 14 awards given by SouthBank to businesses across North and North East Lincolnshire this week, each of whom have displayed a high level of commitment and support to the training and development of apprentices.

HBP Systems Ltd have a very successful track record of not only training apprentices to successfully complete their chosen qualifications but also in placing them in employment at the end of their placements. As part of National Apprenticeship Week Simon Merchant and Carol Leggett visited HBP’s offices on Woodhouse Road to present the award to Tony Pearson, Technical Director, who was joined by four members of staff who all began their working careers with HBP Systems Ltd.

Matthew Billington is the latest apprentice to join HBP and is currently working in the IT Service Team assisting the engineers with their daily tasks when fixing IT issues for customers. Matthew will no doubt be encouraged by the success of other apprentices within the company including Roger Brown who recently progressed from the same position into the IT installations team and is currently studying to become a fully qualified IT engineer.

More success stories in the company are easy to find and Joanne Hill is a perfect example. Joanne started with HBP at the age of 16 working on reception and following a steady rise through the company now finds herself as Managing Director. Katie Maud also successfully completed her apprenticeship with HBP and last year was promoted to Accounts Supervisor and Gemma Place has worked her way from a role on reception to her current role as Technical Services Administrator.

Carol Leggett, Recruitment Manager at SouthBank, praised HBP’s approach to apprenticeships,

“HBP has always been a great place to send young people to work. The training and support given by the Managers and Directors at HBP is fantastic and the success rate of apprentices both passing their exams and finding full time employment is very high. The award given to HBP today recognises this achievement.”
