Surveying the Training Needs of Employers

From time to time the Seafood Network will survey the needs and wishes of fish and shellfish employers in Northern Ireland in order to provide a better service. This webpage is used to manage that process and to report on our findings.

    Do you want to benefit from funded training programmes?

    The best way to ensure that your business and employees benefits from any training or funding opportunities is to respond to a survey from the Seafood Training Network.

    Our first survey will be a simple "getting to know you" survey. If you respond to that quickly we can start to look for ways in which we can help your business with courses and funding.

    The next time we have funding available we will probably contact employers by means of a survey to find out who wants to take advantage of the opportunity.

    Simple short surveys give us the best chance of getting from you the kind of information we need to respond to your needs quickly, respond to funding application calls quickly and to keep in touch.

    We will of course communicate directly with businesses by email, telephone, face to face as appropriate. But, should you be emailed a survey by Seafish or the Seafood Training Network then please treat it as something serious and deserving of a little of your time.

    Timetable of Surveys

    1. Training Needs survey - How does my business measure up - This has been completed for for Scotland. We will be in touch with you to find out how we should respond to the findings. If you want to be amongst the first to find out what the survey says then contact Ian Land at Seafood Scotland.

    2. Training Priorities Survey - due out WC 4th January 2016 - we need to know which of our existing courses are important to employers in Scotland, and what new courses you want us to offer. We will also ask you (at a later date) about locations and timings of courses so that we can offer you the best possible service. The online survey is available here and should not take too long to complete. If you need to look at the detail of individual courses then please consult this list of training courses.
