Training has already taken place in various workplaces throughout Northern Ireland and employers are delighted with the results which includes improved staff morale, increased motivation and productivity in the workplace:
"The L2 NVQ in Customer Service has integrated very well into the Movie House's newly developed staff training programme, which focuses on customer service excellence. The certificate is proving to be a valuable addition, not only to participating employees but also to the business as a whole. It has motivated staff and given them a sense of self-believe; they have gained a better understanding of how they play an integral part in growing our business," said Barbara Campbell, Movie House Business Development Manager. I would urge local businesses to contact A4E about these NVQs as it provides opportunities to up skill staff and adds value to your business" said Wanda Donnan of the Movie House Cinema in Coleraine.
