How We Help Employers
Our dedicated team of Programme Managers advise employers on their options for training, qualifications and funding. We can identify training needs and skills gaps within your workforce and recommend relevant business solutions. By helping you to ensure that your employees have the right skills to do the best job we contribute to your own business plan with a combined target of keeping you and your business ahead of the competition. If we can help – please get in touch. We love delivering business solutions through effective and tailored partnership working.
Training is not only an investment in your future but it also brings with it immediate benefits for:
- Employees: Improved competence, confidence and morale
- Customers: Improved customer satisfaction, service and repeat business
- Business: Efficiency, quality and profitability

We need your help with Sector Work Academies
Acacia Training and Development, in partnership with demand from Job Centre Plus, runs Care Sector Work Academies on a regular basis. As a result, we need Employers to enable customers to develop their skills and have the opportunity to try out work in a real working environment.
A work academy can last up to six weeks and has three key components:
- Pre employment training – this will be carried out at an accessible location where job seekers will gain knowledge to achieve the Level 1 Award in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care.
- A work experience placement
- And finally a job interview.
Your business could benefit from being part of the Care Academy. It is a flexible programme that can be tailored to meet your recruitment needs.
