Talk training is pleased to announce that from the 1st August 2011 it will be working in partnership with ACT to deliver the Apprenticeship Programme, part of the new skills programme, as announced in March 2011 by the Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning, Leighton Andrews.

ACT, whose headquarters are in Cardiff, was awarded a 19m Pound Welsh Government contract by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) for 2011-2012 for the delivery of Traineeship, Steps-to-employment and Apprenticeship Programmes in Wales.
Talk training was established in 1996 to provide vocational training programmes in Mid-Glamorgan and is now recognised as a market leader in the delivery of Apprenticeships in Wales, having to date, successfully trained over 12,000 learners and is currently providing training to over one thousand Apprentices per annum, at over one hundred client companies.

Talk training’s programmes scope from Level 1 to Level 7, and span a wide range of sectors including Management, Manufacturing, Customer Services, Information Technology, Business Administration, and Recycling.

Talk training develops learning in both private and public sector organisations; and clients range from micro businesses to large enterprises; some of whom use our Corporate Academy for bespoke commercial training programmes tailored specific to their needs.
Talk training thanks and looks forward to maintaining its close working relationships with all existing customers, and will continue to develop its business to establish new relationships with new customers.

Jon Hughes, Managing Director of Talk training said of the partnership:

“The Directors have a clear vision of our future working in partnership with ACT, and believe our organisations will prosper together. Talk training will continue to be a first class training provider in the delivery of the Apprenticeship Programme”.
