 Partnership Working 

Himilo training is striving to be a trailblazer in working directly with employers to fill skills shortages in all industries. There is a shortage of skilled workers to meet the needs of the hospitality sector - Himilo Training works directly with specific employers and tailors courses to directly match their specific requirements. Himilo Training is directly responsible for "supporting today's learner to be tomorrow's valued employee". 
 
Changing the face of ESOL 
There is little doubt that developing English language skills are of vital importance, and that securing and progressing into employment is one of the most important factors in successful resettlement. ESOL needs to be individually tailored and set in the wider context of training and employment support. That's why our "Living in Britain" courses support developing language skills that are relevant and enable learners to access services, understand policies, regulations and laws, promote inclusion, support life-long learning and integration into playing a positive and valued role in society.

Looking for Employers 

Himilo Training is looking for employers who have a skills shortage and would welcome the opportunity to input into the training of learners to meet the specific skills they require. We can deliver employers' Health & Safety, Equality & Diversity, policies and procedures, and provide appropriate planned work placements with mentoring and a structured learning review. This is a great option to "try before you buy" for both parties. Contact the Training Team on 0117 954 0433 for more info.
