Gateshead Council can improve the skills and motivation of your staff that, in turn, will increase your productivity.


At Gateshead Council, we want our employers to get the best value for money and this is why we try to source training subsidies to help make your budgets go further.

One of the ways we can do this is through Train to Gain, offered in conjunction with the Learning and Skills Council. Your organisation could benefit from fully subsidised learning programmes for employees who do not yet have a level 2 qualification, including subsidies for wages. Working towards a nationally recognised vocational qualification, employees gain experience, recognise their potential and make a positive contribution to the organisation.

Working with our experienced trainers, you can choose the right qualification for you and your staff and the organisation. We will then deliver the learning within your workplace.

Free information, advice and guidance is available throughout the programme and your employees can also benefit from additional training sessions to add knowledge and understanding.

At Gateshead Council we will work with you to provide the right training solution for your organisation. We can deliver from introductory levels right through to higher-level vocational programmes. The sectors we deliver in are

Each of our training packages are linked to your organisational objectives and designed to be part of your company-wide strategy.

All of our trainers are industry specialists and you can be confident that we can help and support you to evaluate what is available and best for your organisation.
