The range of development opportunities provided under the council’s Career Transition Service has been extended to include some exciting training options offered by Birmingham Adult Education Service (BAES). These range from “Computers: First Step”, aimed at people who have never used a computer before, to PRINCE2 and CHAMPS2 project management, English and Mathematics skills, customer service AND team leading/supervisory management.

As well as the range of workshops already being offered through the BCC Career Transition Service, staff can now also spend their “units” on any of this new training in order to best meet their individual needs and aspirations.

The Career Transition Service has been set up to provide you with the necessary support to make informed decisions about your future. For those who stay with the council we want to move forward with a renewed sense of purpose, making a positive difference every day to people’s lives. All of the training being offered by BAES will help you do this.

If people leave the council we want them to do so armed with information that will enable them to thrive somewhere else. Again, the training on offer can help staff gain a competitive advantage in a jobsearch context.
