Making a Difference with Training From Code

Staff from Go-centric have recently benefitted from training delivered by Code through North East Workforce Skills programme.

Why did you choose Code?

We were actually already working with Code, the company currently delivers our apprenticeships. Based on the positive feedback received from other staff I was intrigued as to what Code could offer in the realm of short, informative training courses. Code’s stellar reputation was a big deciding factor in us partnering with the company and I highly recommend the services the Centre of Digital Excellence provides.

In terms of accessing the ESF funding through North East Skills, how easy was the process?

I found the whole process very efficient. Prior to staff enrolling, Code completed a taster Q&A which gave the wider team a basic understanding of what was involved and really kick-started everyone’s interest in the course before the wheels were set in motion. Overall, the process was totally hassle-free.

What did you like about the training?

I found the Microsoft Office session very informative. The training that was provided was clear and concise. Everything I learned on the course is relevant to my job and I’m really excited to apply my new-found knowledge of Microsoft Office to several areas of my role. From a range of shortcuts, to various tools, the tips I have picked up will help me massively with my time management and professional development.
