Lithuania Bound

Business Development Midlands Ltd (BDM) continued with their international training crusade ,ably supported by UK Trade and Industry, by visiting Lithuania. Keith Fielding, one of BDM's most experienced tutors attended a number of meetings to both network and explore training opportunities. With BDM having recently joined the prestigious British Chamber of Commerce in Lithuania, Keith attended their Annual General Meeting to network and make important contacts.
Further education institutions were also on the itinerary and a very positive meeting took place with the International School of Law and Business followed by a meeting with the Vilnius College of Political Sciences.
Keith certainly got the most out of his visit because he was even able to take in the Vilnius Trade Show at the Airport on his way rest for the wicked!
The upshot of the visit is that BDM are hoping to launch a pilot Leadership and Management module scheme in the Autumn.

As part of the Apprenticeship they each achieved five qualifications: ILM Level 5 Diploma in Management, ILM Level 5 NVQ in Management and three Functional Skills qualifications.

BDM continue to have a successful relationship with Eriks and in April 2013 a presentation saw 8 managers from Eriks received their certificates for successful completion of the ILM Level 5 Management Diploma. The course took a total of 12 months to complete and included both NVQ and VRQ qualifications. BDM Director, Ian White, revealed that due to the high standards of work completed, with much of it being implemented directly into the business, many of the students have been put forward for further ILM recognition.

The group agreed that although the qualifications were challenging they were ultimately rewarding and have had an inestimable impact on the business, with many of the group indicating their keenness in moving on to the degree.

BDM would like to congratulate all of the group for their hard work in achieving their qualifications.
