What A Year: Meeting the Needs of Industry; EDUCATION NORTH BIRMINGHAM COLLEGE


BUSINESS development at North Birmingham College is moving swiftly along and is supporting the college's aim 'to work in collaboration with local employers to support their employees in the development and updating of their skills, experience and knowledge.'

ONE company working very closely with the College is Rubery based 'We Are Cleaning'.

The college is delivering a NEBS Introductory Certificate on-site at the company premises.

Training Manager Brian Heath says 'the service received by North Birmingham College is first class. I would certainly use North Birmingham College again to support us in delivering our company training and I would have no hesitation in recommending the College'.

The College is very proud of it's particular strengths in delivering corporate training in the areas of Basic Skills, Information Technology, Management and Business Administration.

In the New Year the College will be launching a new Corporate Brochure focusing on the services offered to our business clients.

Business seminars

In an attempt to reach out to industry, the College offers a comprehensive one day business seminar programme.

Seminars available include: Designing a Web Page for your Business; Finance for Non-Finance Managers; Business Writing Skills for Secretaries and Personal Assistants; E-Commerce for Your Business and ISO 9000

On February 1st the College is holding a breakfast seminar entitled 'Preparing Your Workforce for Today and Tomorrow'.

This event will be a briefing to advise companies on the training available from the College and Birmingham & Solihull TEC for them to develop the core work skills of the employees, which is a key Government priority.

Work related core skills include communication, report writing and message taking skills and team working.

To help companies achieve this aim and provide information on a range of development support available, North Birmingham College invites all interested parties to attend the breakfast briefing on Thursday 1st February 2001 7.30am-9am in the Mayfair Lounge at Walsall Football Club, Bescot Stadium, Walsall, West Midlands.
