National training provider, Qube Learning, has teamed up with international facilities management services company, OCS Group UK (OCS), to train motivated workers across the nation.
OCS was keen to work with a training provider that shared the same ethos of employee care and progression, and had the ability to be commercial, agile and flexible. Key to this was finding a provider that would understand the facilities management industry, and therefore assist with the overall complexity, nuances and challenges that OCS encounters every day.
Qube Learning was tasked to aid cultural and behavioural changes and improve on processes and people performance and overall ROI, and chosen to work within four core areas of the OCS business (management & leadership, cleaning, facilities management Level 2 & 3 and business and project management) to help upskill, develop and retain staff.
Qube Learning will work alongside three other selected providers.
Toni-Marie Vaughan, Apprenticeship Manager, of OCS Group UK said: “Qube Learning skills coaches have done whatever they can to adapt to changes and demands of the business and accommodate where there have been challenges. They want to approach things from a true partnership and can adapt the bespoke schemes of work which is essential for our business since we cannot run “vanilla” programmes which have not worked with other providers. Qube Learning stood out to us with their malleable style and passionate approach to success. They have been brilliant in supporting the new incentive scheme to recruit apprentices and openly collaborated with our other three providers.”
Qube Learning has supported OCS’ request to imbed the CMI diploma and using CMI as the end point assessment organisation for the management and leadership programmes with 48 apprenticeships underway so far.
The training provider wants to make apprenticeships accessible and appealing for OCS employees who are keen to expand their professional knowledge whilst learning in a work environment, and is offering a free one-day mentoring training programme, launching in October.
