London , United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 22, 2009 -- HDA, who have delivered outplacement support across the UK and internationally over 30 years understand the value of post redundancy vocational training to get people back into work and leveraging their careers. Their range of outplacement support programmes gives clients at all levels, across all sectors with access to new skills, knowledge, opportunities and confidence whilst their careers are in transition.
With UK unemployment standing at over 2.4 million the job market is increasingly competitive and people transitioning out of roles following redundancy donât always have the up-to-date skills and experience employers are looking for. This is where vocational training is particularly valuable, enhancing a candidates potential to succeed.
HDA's candidates and their career consultants are increasingly recognising that developing skills and building knowledge during career transition delivers significant advantages in today's work and business arenas.
Candidates increasingly understand the need for strong personal career ownership, and HDA believes that gaining new skills and qualifications enhances their candidates' employability, directly impacting their immediate and future career prospects.
With this in mind; HDA now partners with Hemsley Fraser, a global innovator and leader in learning and people development, to offer candidates exclusive access to over 250 of Hemsley Fraser's vocational training courses on many of its outplacement programmes, (subject to programme limits).
Some courses lead to certification or qualifications further enhancing candidate CVs as well as their skills and knowledge. Popular choices include Prince2 project management and The Chartered Management Institute Diploma course.
Other courses can help candidates with self-marketing skills for their job-hunt, new business, interim management or consultancy venture.
Where HDAâs outplacement support has led to candidates securing a new role or opportunity whilst they still have access to their HDA programme; HDA continues to support these candidates into their new roles, including providing access to vocational training to help candidates make an impact in those first crucial months in their new roles.
Part of the global Demos Group, Hemsley Fraser has a strong UK, European and North American presence and a network of over 400 professionals, bringing a comprehensive range of learning and development capabilities to clients to equip them more effectively to face a significantly tougher job market.
Clayton Glen, Director at HDA stated, âDeveloping key skills during a period of career transition is a constructive use of available time which our outplacement candidates may not have had when in full time employment, and we strongly believe that the development of new competencies during periods of career transition could open new doors. Partnering with Hemsley Fraser gives our clients access to world class vocational training which is sure to help them succeed in this tough job market.â
