APPRENTICESHIPS – LATEST NEWS FROM BDM!

BDM are pleased to announce that they have been approved as an apprenticeship training provider by the government's Skills Funding Agency, and consequently placed on the official Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (ROATP) .

This means that, from May 2017, employers liable to the levy will be able to select a provider from the ROATP register and through this, BDM will be able to offer locally delivered quality apprenticeships to levy payers keen to make the most of the levy resources at their disposal'

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 home..no 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.

National Apprentiiceship Week

As it is National Apprenticeship Week BDM is Introducing our latest Sales & Marketing Apprenticeship.
What Is It?

The Sales Programme is designed to introduce young people to successful careers as sales professionals. Fully funded training delivered by BDM will introduce candidates to the basic knowledge underpinning the Sales industry including:

Understanding Sales techniques and processes

Understanding Sales targets

Understanding Business awareness in Sales

This knowledge based learning is combined with practical experience in a sales environment within a relevant business. This means that businesses can filter the very best candidates for their Sales needs before they commit to a full 12 month apprenticeship. This not only takes the risk out of Sales Apprenticeships but means that the knowledge and experience gained by the candidates can be as relevant as possible to your specific business needs.

Tasks undertaken by apprentices will vary depending on the sector in which they are employed but could include selling face-to-face or by telephone, processing sales orders, supporting customers in obtaining finance for purchases, generating and qualifying sales leads and negotiating and closing sales.

If your business could use a cost-effective, pre-trained sales employee then enquire and become part of the BDM Apprenticeship Programme.
