Covering countries in all world regions and combining industry expert insights with evidence-driven research, EIU, a sister operation to The Economist magazine, has examined how linen and uniform service has grown globally.

Invisible Women

How to unlock potential and profit, through a talented pipeline of senior women leaders

7 October 2020

10.00am-11.00am

Note: TSA members only – contact TSA to discuss membership

There’s never been a more pressing time to ‘sweat your assets’ or to ‘unlock potential’, the stakes are high and the margin for error is slim. Our members webinar Invisible Women – How to unlock potential and profit through a talented pipeline of senior women leaders seeks to question, are we sitting on talent you didn’t know existed, with everything else going on, does it make sense to focus on diversity and inclusion now and if so, where do you start?

Join us and our webinar host, Jackie Moody-McNamara, who will be sharing research and asks the question, can we afford not to make progress in the advancement of women leaders? She will also be talking to some of our members about their experiences and successes in this area. There will also be an interactive Q and A session.

Other questions to be answered?

  • Is there a compelling business case for achieving a balanced workforce?
  • What are the barriers to overcome if you wanted to achieve a pipeline of talented senior women leaders?
  • What can be done to overcome the barriers, what are the critical success factors?

“I have generally found there’s a fear to openly discuss the issues surrounding women’s advancement in business, a fear that people don’t understand the subtitles and expose their ignorance or say the wrong thing and be judged publicly. A great start is to provide insights, ask questions and talk, in a safe space without judgement, it’s the only way to make progress” – Jackie Moody-McNamara

 

Apprenticeship Webinar

TSA’s training adviser David Kinson will take you through the apprenticeship opportunity

15 October 2020

10.00am-11.00am

Note: TSA members only – contact TSA to discuss membership

Are you looking for a nationally recognised and approved apprenticeship standard specifically for your laundry operatives?

Are you looking to take on an apprentice or upskill existing employees?

Who can take an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeship training is available to everyone irrespective of age or length of service so you can source laundry operative training for a new starter or upskill your existing employees.

What does it cost?

Depending on the size of your business and whether or not you pay the apprenticeship levy the cost of an apprenticeship programme can potentially be fully covered by your apprenticeship levy payments or as a non-levy paying organisation you receive 95 per cent government support. There are other criteria such as candidate numbers and geographical location that may impact the delivery costs making an additional employer contribution necessary.

How do apprenticeships work?

The structure of an apprenticeship programme is governed by the Institute for Apprenticeships and must meet strict guidelines.

Training: The Textile Care Operative Apprenticeship training programme lasts twelve months and is delivered at the candidate’s workplace. Training is provided through a government approved training provider and supplemented with knowledge and skills gained through work experience and ‘off the job’ training.

This webinar is to find out all about the Textile Care Operative Apprenticeship programme. Contact the TSA to register.
