Lockdown your training with TTF Academy

ARTICLE · By Timber Trade Federation · 14 April 2020

As the UK passes three weeks of lockdown, many people are in their homes and unable to go to work, the gym or meet up with their friends in the park.

One way to help make the most of this lockdown period for your business and employees is to brush up on training with our online courses.

The TTF academy offers online courses ranging from accredited timber and product CPD modules, to videos and bite-sized modules in essential skills.

Through short courses you and your team can learn about all aspects of the timber trade. Modules include responsible sourcing, timber cladding, and fire safety, giving your team the knowledge to boost your sales. The vast majority of our courses are completely free to access and complete.

Furloughed employees can continue to engage in training and are actively being encouraged to by the Government. This will not cause any issues for you provided it does not generate revenue for your business.

You and your employees can also work on your soft skills beyond the timber trade. Business-relevant topics include an introduction to GDPR, dealing with conflict, and cyber security.

As a TTF Member, you can manage your learners through the system and track their progress. This will help you get your whole team qualified.

The TTF Academy also offers training specific for timber merchants. The Level 3 Award in Timber Merchanting.

Backed by the timber industry and accredited by ProSkills/Occupational Awards, this programme not only stands alone as an award but it can contribute up to 70% of knowledge marks towards the Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Merchant Supplies.

To sign up complete the registration form on the TTF Academy online learning portal. If you manage a team and wish to set up company account for multiple registrations, then please talk to Karen Sussex.
