Overview

Overview

The training team brings together a wealth of industry experience and knowledge of the learning process to deliver high-quality training programmes.

Last year, the Chamber delivered courses on 64 subjects over 254 training days to over 2,000 delegates.

Research shows that investing in training your employees can bring an increase in productivity, motivation, higher customer satisfaction and directly benefit the bottom line profit.

We can tailor a programme for your needs, incorporating your company objectives and values, along with any additional topics to complement the core delivery.

"We have been a member of AGCC for several years now and they have delivered many courses over the years.

They have a good selection of courses which they can tailor to your company's specific needs if required as well as conducting the training in-house which is extremely good and more efficient for management.

I would have no hesitation in recommending AGCC to all."

Lynette Milligan, UK learning and development manager, Archer UK Ltd
Over 98% of our delegates would recommend their course.

VQs

Vocational Qualifications

The opportunity to achieve work-based qualifications increases individuals' occupational knowledge and skills.

Scottish Vocational Qualifications relate to a candidate's practical ability to work in real conditions and to a degree of competence over time.

There are no tests or exams, and competence is assessed in the candidate's own workplace.

"Since completing my SVQ4, I feel a much better-rounded manager and feel I now have a more solid background of knowledge and skills to utilise in my role.

In turn, I have taken on much more responsibilities for my role and my overall standard of performance as duty manager has improved."

Marc Robertson, duty manager, Aberdeen Sports Village

The occupational areas we cover are:

  • Business Administration at level 2, 3 or 4
  • Customer service at level 2 or 3
  • Management & leadership at level 2, 3, 4 or 5
  • Learning & development at level 3 or 4

In some cases, up to £1,900 of funding may be available through Skills Development Scotland to cover, or contribute to, the cost of a Modern Apprenticeship.

Mentoring

Mentoring

Enhance your leadership skills with objective, impartial support and encouragement from an experienced business person.

A mentor can work with you on a one-to-one basis or as part of a group, helping you gain a wealth of knowledge and skills that can take a lifetime to develop.

We will match you carefully with a mentor that has the right skills and experience to meet your needs.

"Sometimes it's simply sharing the apparently mundane experience or some of the mistakes that we have made that can be gold dust to a growing business."
