Delivering free training across North Yorkshire and Tees Valley, SSW is a project being delivered by Calderdale College’s External Funding Unit.

When Lee Harris-Hamer, Managing Director of White Horse Cleaning Services, a commercial-based cleaning company in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, found himself faced with training challenges he sought advice from SSW.
Lee’s staff took several fully-funded training courses including Award in Industrial Environmental Awareness, Certificate in Principles of Business and Admin, Certificate in Customer Service and Certificate in Team Leading.
Not only do staff now feel more confident in their job roles, which has helped to improve staff retention, but Lee has also been able to reward and promote employees thanks to their new skill levels, and has even grown his business’s revenue by 134%.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ _bp_base=”0_2″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 20px;”][cs_element_image _id=”11″ ][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_inset=”0px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_inset=”0px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ _bp_base=”0_2″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” _bp_base=”0_2″ style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ _bp_base=”0_2″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_element_text _id=”15″ ][cs_content_seo]Watch the full video to find out how easy it was for White Horse Cleaning to incorporate the training into the business, how it’s helped them stand out from the crowd when recruiting, and most importantly, how it’s made the team feel like a valued part of the company.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_video _id=”16″ ][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
