Employer Case Study: Otter Nurseries

Otter Nurseries’ passion for growing quality plants is at the root of their success, a success that can only stem from a happy and well-trained workforce, which is why they sought training advice from City College Plymouth. “When I joined the company four years ago, training wasn’t made available to the staff and it was obvious that the staff would benefit immensely from some sort of training programme,” says Sean Duff, General Manager of Otter Nurseries in Plymouth. “City College Plymouth was the obvious choice when we were looking for a training provider. As an ex-student of the College I was aware of the quality of training it provides and I knew that the College would be able to deliver exactly the right training for our workforce.

“The College made the whole process so easy - a Business Skills Advisor visited our premises and spent the day talking to staff in order to gain an insight into the training needs required. “The great thing about working with the College was the fact that we were assigned a single point of contact who was able to understand our business and who quickly identified our specific training needs. From warehouse distribution to business administration, we now have over 20 employees who have completed National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) through the College.” This successful working relationship has resulted in the College working with other branches of the Otter Nurseries group. The company now offers its workforce the opportunity to discuss their training needs with the College twice a year. Sean says: “The feedback from staff has been fantastic - it’s amazing to see the increased self-esteem, knowledge and ability that the training has created. One of the other benefits has been the reduction in staff turnover - since we began the training programme with the College we have had only one member of staff leave us, which is an incredible reduction over the period. Absence is low, morale is high - it really is a win, win situation for us!”

NVQ - right for you? National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are flexible qualifications that ensure you have the skills, knowledge and understanding to do a job well. They signify that you are able (competent) to perform a specified range of work related tasks. Competence is the ability to apply knowledge, understanding

and skills in performing to the standards required in employment, carrying out tasks and achieving results. They are attractive to both employers and employees as they are based on an employee’s performance at work, providing evidence of that individual’s ability to do the job.
