All learners with Skills Group have a dedicated mentor who will support them throughout their time with us by providing impartial advice and guidance. They will liaise between the employer and Skills Group trainers to ensure that each learner is on track with their learning plans, and achieves the best of their ability.
Additional Learning Support
If your child has any additional social or learning support needs, such as dyslexia or anxiety, please do make sure you make us aware, they will be assigned a mentor from our learner support team who will ensure any additional support requirements are readily available to you.
When each learner starts with Skills Group we provide a comprehensive induction programme to:
- The training team and other learners on the programme
- A tour of the training centre and facilities available to your child
- An overview of the programme
- Health and safety, first aid and our emergency procedures
Each learner will also receive an induction programme from their employer, introducing them to their site and health and safety procedures.
If your child does not have GCSE grade C (4/5) or above in Maths and/or English, Skills Group will support them to achieve equivalent Functional Skills qualifications alongside their programme, whether they are on an apprenticeship or full-time course. Functional Skills are the practical application of Maths and English relevant to your chosen trade.
We also offer Functional Skills in ICT, as this is a key skill required by the vast majority of employers.
