Hoople training directory 2017 now available!

Hoople Training and Education has published its new directory of training programmes for 2017. To receive your free copy, please email our Training team. You can also download a PDF copy from the Hoople website.

With nearly 50 courses on offer, the directory will be your 'go-to' reference source when looking for training for your team members this year.

Don't forget! Hoople also offers bespoke and tailored programmes to meet your specific needs. Please email our Training team for further help and advice.

Open courses and new pricing structure

Dates and prices for our upcoming open courses in 2017 have now been published on CPD Online, ready for booking. To accompany these dates we have prepared a new calendar of training courses for March through to August 2017.

Please note that, ahead of the new financial year, Hoople Training and Education has unveiled a new pricing structure for training courses. The new pricing will apply to all bookings on courses taking place on or after 1 April 2017. As part of this new structure we have taken care to ensure that price increases have been kept to a minimum, so that courses remain competitive and value for money.

This year, we are running a series of one-off courses, including Advanced Medication (date TBC), Fire for Managers and Safeguarding Adults for Managers. We anticipate these courses selling out closer to the time so please book early to avoid disappointment.

All open courses can be booked on CPD Online or by emailing our Training team. In addition to this you can access our full bi-annual calendar of courses.

Fully funded training now available

Hoople Training and Education is offering Herefordshire small and medium sized (SME) businesses the opportunity to access free training, thanks to funding from the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

The funding covers a wide range of subject areas offered by Hoople, including training specifically targeted at the care sector, ICT training, business administration and customer service.

To qualify for the training, all organisations must employ fewer than 250 people and will be required to complete an Organisational Training Needs Analysis form (available from Hoople).

Further information about eligibility and available courses can be obtained by phoning 01432 383500 or by emailing our Training team.

Introducing our new process for apprentice recruitment

In order to better support employers who take on an apprentice through Hoople Training and Education, we have revised and improved our apprenticeship recruitment process.

We will support you by advertising your vacancy on the National Apprenticeship Service website and will screen applications on your behalf to ensure a good match between your vacancy and learners. We will communicate with the applicants throughout the recruitment process.

We are already receiving applications from school and college leavers who are interested in apprenticeships in health and social care, childcare, dental nursing, business and administration and customer service. If you're interested in employing an apprentice in your organisation, please contact us.  Don't forget that there are particular incentives - including a £1,000 cash bonus - for employing a young person aged 16-18 years in an apprenticeship role. 

For more information, visit our website or contact our team.
