Training leader strengthens management team

North West-based training specialist Jigsaw Training has added five new programme managers to its team as it strengthens its resource to meet increasing demands across the UK.

The new members of the organisation, with its headquarters at Preston, will add their skills to help meet the needs presented by the newly introduced Apprenticeship Levy as well as other learning requirements from its client base.

The managers, spread across the UK, manage the curriculum, the training programmes and the delivery team as part of their role.

James Blackhurst, managing director of Jigsaw Training, said: “These appointments have all been made internally amongst our existing staff, and gives us the resource to meet our customer needs for now and the foreseeable future.

“As a registered provider for the new Levy arrangement, we also need to make sure we have the skills and resource in-house to provide the relevant level of training.”

The new Apprenticeship Levy – introduced in April – must be paid by employers in England with a payroll of more than £3m and is charged at a rate of 0.5% of their annual wage bill.

Levy-paying employers are able to choose their apprenticeship training provider from a register of companies. Jigsaw Training has been through a rigorous assessment process to make it on to the register, which shows the specialist provider meets apprenticeship quality expectations.

Jigsaw Training is a specialist training company for the facilities management sector providing the complete package from training needs analysis through to the design, administration, delivery, management and evaluation of all programmes.
