Case Studies

Check out this case study from Chichester College Group.

West Sussex County Council (WSCC)

Chichester College have been working with WSCC since before 2012, across a range of training provisions including Human Resources, Business Administration, Customer Services, IT and Digital frameworks, AAT and Management qualifications (levels 2, 3 and 5).

The college has supported in full the advertising and recruitment process for new apprentice recruits and have offered tailored advice to existing staff about the spectrum of Apprenticeship training opportunities available. They have delivered training on the premises of WSCC for Business Administration and Customer Services and also welcome apprentices from WSCC to day-release and block release sessions at the Chichester College campus for subjects such as AAT, HR and IT.

They endeavour to be flexible and responsive to the Council’s training needs and actively demonstrated this in 2015 with the launch of the framework Town Planning. The introduction of this framework was as a direct result of the County and supporting District Council’s requests that this was a resource need for their industries. The college continues to pioneer new work in support of the County Council and are currently working with them to explore options of introducing the new standard Transport Planning level 3 to address ongoing recruitment needs.

The college value the relationship developed with WSCC and provide support services to them via a dedicated account manager who specialises in assisting them in developing their tailored needs and who conducts regular training needs analysis meetings with the point of contact as referenced in this case study.
