A NEW training programme for young professionals has been launched in Swindon.
Anne Messer, managing director of Bespoke Training Services, has created a new ‘Young Talent’ training programme aimed at 18 to 26-year-old young professionals.
Her new package is designed to develop and enhance business skills in those who have little or no working experience.
“The aim is to create highly competent employees with the ability to communicate effectively on all levels, as well as helping them develop a detailed self-awareness,” says Anne.
“The boundaries between work and leisure for young Millennial workers tend to be permeable. Their career track leans toward job hopping, they also have a tendency to challenge the traditional.
“However, their dedication to purpose, their openness, an inclination toward putting people first, and their inbuilt knowledge of the internet, social media and up-to-the-minute technology, presents countless opportunities to their employers.
“Skilled people lead to increased turnover and profit, a strong brand and reputation, lower staff churn; more efficiency, as well as a healthy and productive workplace culture.”
In 2015, the Millennial Generation – born roughly between 1982 and 2002 – became the largest generation in history overtaking the Baby Boomers at around 91 million (Baby Boomers were 77m and are the first generation to grow up with the internet and with mobile technology being easily accessible.
Bespoke’s ‘Young Talent Programme’ addresses the varied challenges presented by school and further education leavers who are new to the workplace. It looks at fast track development, as well as encouraging the highest working standards.
The six-month training programme includes:
A work-based assignment
A Myers Briggs Step 1 test
Five one-day modules.
Bespoke Training Services, based in Old Town, Swindon, has had clients including Eduserv, Campack, Scottish & Southern Energy, Berendsen (formerly Sunlight Laundry), the Samaritans, Wiltshire Law Centre, Tecan Precision Engineering, Cranfield University and Appetito.
