Fit for purpose. Always in fit
embrace the future
Technological advancement is constantly reinventing the world of work.
From workspaces to workplaces, packaging to graphic communication, businesses must keep current with skills retraining and recruiting as accelerated transformation drives the print and manufacturing industry forward.
As business roles evolve and expand across this dynamic sector, it is crucial that training solutions are as holistic as they are wholly relevant – positioning companies for growth and empowering employees to realise their true potential. At BPIF training, we specialise in delivering tomorrow’s training needs today.
OUR ‘ALWAYS IN FIT’ TRAINING PROVISION IS BUILT ON A THREE PILLAR APPROACH
In a technology driven ecosystem, we upskill your people with the latest processes, products and procedures to keep your business future-proofed.
We believe no one understands the print and manufacturing industry like we do. And we specialise in using our deep knowledge to provide industry-leading, real world training.
All our trainers and tutors have first hand experience in the print and manufacturing sector.
Our approach to training is always led by the workplace environment. The creation of each training programme is employer-led, meaning that employers have specified exactly what’s required from an apprentice in each specific role. Each programme is tailored to your specific definition of a job role, allowing it to be in fit with your organisations structure.
BPIF training guarantees fair treatment and high quality training. We promise to value you for who you are. That’s what we mean by equality, diversity and inclusion for all.
As an integral part of the delivering government funded training we are governed by Ofsted, achieving a Good rating in 2019.
As a training provider, we prioritose our learners’ health, safety, enjoyment and achievement, by promoting safeguarding in our learners’ workplace, and influencing employers to provide safe, supportive environments in which apprentices and all learners learn, make positive contributions and achieve economic well-being.
Our training also includes education around British Values. Our approach is to integrate discussions in all our learning provision around democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
