Employability Skills

The thought of looking for work, or going to an interview can be very scary –
particularly if you have never worked before or have been out of work for a while!

In an increasingly competitive job market, it is important to be prepared and vital to have the relevant job seeking skills and knowledge to give yourself the best chance of finding that job. One of the most important things you can do to boost your chances is to update your skills. This extra training will help convince a potential employer that you have the drive and commitment to succeed, as well as having tangible and relevant skills.
Our employability courses lead to nationally recognised and accredited certificates that can enhance your CV.

Support For Employers

Bespoke Training:

We know that an off the shelf training course or qualification doesn’t necessarily suit your individual business needs. Eat That Frog work with a number of qualified, industry specific, experienced trainers, who will work with you to design a programme that achieves your aims.
A bespoke training package allows you to cover specific topics within a short amount of time, reducing the time your employees are out of the business. This also allows us to take into account the individual learning styles of delegates e.g. a balance of workshops, case studies and presentations.

Contact us with an outline of your staff training gaps, and we’ll produce a plan to upskill your workforce – we also run training courses as a way to help recruit suitably skilled applicants for you to interview.

In-house Training:

Think of us as your dedicated training department, with our Directors having over 20 years’ experience in training and accessing funding prior to ETF. We can access a wide range of qualifications and training opportunities, enabling us to run courses and workshops at your premises, causing less staff down-time and disruption to your core business.

Professional Training:

Having qualified staff leads directly to better service delivery and higher productivity,
reducing staff turnover and absenteeism. Once qualified, employees become more confident in their roles, with the benefit of up to date knowledge and processes within their specialism. Training also gives an opportunity to network with counterparts from other organisations, where sharing best practice is encouraged.

Please note – for advanced courses, course fees can be fully funded by a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan
