Upskill your staff through the Accomplish Programmes

14 October 2019


Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s new Accomplish business support programmes are aimed at developing your employees

The council’s Accomplish Programmes support local businesses to upskill their staff in coaching, supervisory and leadership skills. The support programmes have been developed in partnership with local companies to meet their needs as part of the employability and skills agenda. The programme is being delivered by Full Circle and Southern Regional College on a collaborative basis.

Part-funded by the Department for Economy through their Skills Focus Programme in partnership with Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, the participants also make a small contribution to the £30,000 project.

There are 21 employees from key growth sector companies throughout the borough on the Supervisory and Management Development Programmes. On completion of each programme, which takes just a few months, participants will have received either an ILM level 2 accreditation in Leadership and Team Skills or ILM level 3 in Leadership and Management.

A further 10 participants on the Accomplish Programme will gain the ILM Level 3 award in Effective Coaching – a totally unique element of the programme which is fully funded by the council.

It is the aim of the programme that by the end of March 2020 a total of 55 local people will have benefited from the business support.
