EMPLOYER INFORMATION

WHAT WE DO

 

Developing Nation is a dynamic coaching & training organisation with over 40 years experience.  For the past 10 years we have been delivering Stage 2 and Stage 3 General Employability training in Fife, Falkirk, Stirling, Dundee City, and Angus and have supported thousands of candidates to achieve positive employment destinations.

We’re looking to work with local employers toprovide our trainees with suitable and engagingwork experience, as well as help businesses trainup and employ skilled young people and make a
difference in their community.

OUR TRAINEES

 

Our trainees range from school leavers, to older people looking to get back into work, and have varied skill sets and levels of experience.

Our courses ensure that all of our trainees are prepared for the workplace, covering:

  • SQA Course Work (core skills as well as employability, including health and safety, equality and diversity, dealing with conflict, and responsibilities in the workplace)

  • General Employability Skills, such as administration, IT, and customer service

  • A range of our Personal Development Workshops, educating them on the right attitude to have, and developing motivation.

  • Interviews and Job Applications, where we prep our trainees on appropriate body language, clothing, and language to use in interviews and when dealing with potential employers.

  • We also aspire to provide any training a trainee might require for more specific industry jobs

 

WORK EXPERIENCE

During our Stage 3 training programme, we aim to give our trainees up to 240 hours of relevant industry work experience - could your business provide this opportunity?

As well as helping to improve employability in your local community, offering work experience is an ideal way to see if someone is the right fit for your business and train them up!  There’s no cost to you either, as we’ll cover our
trainees’ wages.

We carefully match our trainees and partner businesses to ensure that both parties have a productive and positive experience, and will regularly check up on our candidates to make sure that they are working to their potential.

 

MODERN APPRENTICESHIPS

If one of our trainees turns out to be right for you, a Modern Apprenticeship can be a great way to train them up in the necessary skills while on the job.

In partnership with Skills Development Scotland, Developing Nation can support you to apply to deliver a Modern Apprenticeship, providing the training aspect of the apprenticeship while you employ them.

Taking part in the scheme can be of great benefit to employers as:

  • Skills Development Scotland contribute towards the cost of training, so you'll save money.

  • You can train up your apprentice to meet skills gaps in your business or the industry.

  • Apprenticeships aren't limited to new employees.  You can use them to train up existing staff members too.

  • Apprenticeships span across a range of different industries and job roles, helping you to find the right training for your business.
