Employer First Membership Update

Employer First aims to work with the UK’s training market to develop world class skills products for the Low Carbon sector. Through this network of providers, you are given the ability to innovate, respond and work collaboratively to identify new solutions and strive for excellence in skills. To do so, you will benefit from direct engagement with the Low Carbon industry.

“We welcomed the opportunity to work together with Employer First to devise and deliver a bespoke management training programme to the staff of one of their member companies who design products for low carbon vehicles. Employer First provided an excellent Training Needs Analysis that enabled us to build a well-received programme. We would not hesitate to recommend the Employer First service to clients considering membership and would encourage providers to get involved in this sector. We look forward to future collaboration with Employer First in developing further innovative projects in this exciting business sector.” 

Stuart Pyle – Director of Straplan Ltd
