News: Construction firms can build their business with DVC

By

Businesses in the construction trade who are based in the Sheffield city region can enhance their skills at no cost with a range of business-focused courses delivered by Dearne Valley College (DVC) in Rotherham.

With its main campus in Manvers, Dearne Valley College specialises in vocational training and apprenticeships, meaning that courses focus on the skills required by industry with an emphasis on employability. It also has a dedicated Business Development Team that works with local firms to identify where the skills gaps are, advise on funding initiatives and ease the complexity of investing in staff.

The business courses, which were designed in collaboration with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) in response to growing employer needs, will equip construction professionals with the practical business skills they need to ensure the smooth running of their business, allowing them to diversify into new markets, secure more work and manage their growth effectively.

There are a range of qualifications covering wider business skills, such as Business Leadership, Marketing, Finance, Project Management and Human Resources, among others, which are tailored to suit businesses with on-site delivery and flexible start dates. However, Dearne Valley College are urging employers to act fast, with funding only available for this initiative until July 2015, provided by the European Social Fund and the Skills Funding Agency.

A spokesperson for the College said: "We are delighted to be able to offer this fully funded training to small-to-medium businesses across the borough. This opportunity is limited to July 2015, so if businesses would like to take advantage of this free initiative, which has been designed to suit what employers within the industry are asking for, they should act now and speak to our fantastic Business Development team."
