We’re an award-winning employer, with award-winning employees!
When speaking to a training provider, you can often be promised the world but then be let down when you are met with mediocre service. Here at Set Training, we like to practice what we preach and show that we are a training provider with a difference.
On January the 30th, the Set Training Team attended the brilliant awards ceremony at the Central Chambers for the Annual Glasgow Guarantee awards. It was inspiring to see a room filled with so many successful apprentices and businesses who support apprenticeships across Glasgow. We were absolutely delighted to scoop the award for Small Employer of the Year, up against ten other shortlisted businesses. Not only this, but Courtney, our recently graduated apprentice, and now full-time Operations Administrator walked away with the Apprentice of the Year award!
When we start working with employers, we are selective, and we make sure that the environment is supportive and progressive for a young person to grow and develop in. An apprenticeship needs to not only benefit the employer, but also the young person at the start of their future career. We hope that by winning this award, it shows that this kind of environment is not just what we look for in our clients, but also one we provide ourselves.
A lot of work behind the scenes is put in to match potential apprentices to the right work environment, based on their aspirations, skillsets, and personalities which is exactly how Courtney ended up with us. Courtney started at Set Training with no admin or recruitment work experience, but over the course of her apprenticeship was given the autonomy to develop her own role and take on more responsibilities whenever she felt ready to take them on. She now runs all aspects of administration and recruitment single-handed, which is quite an achievement for no experience.
So, if you are looking to partner with a training provider to either become an apprentice or take on an apprentice, you now know that we really mean it when we say we are a training provider with a difference!
