Frequently Asked Questions?

Cost

How much do your training programmes cost?

In the majority of cases, funding for the training offered by Twin comes from the government, so no cost is passed on to the employer. Where more bespoke training solutions are required, we will negotiate a fee that reflects your organisation’s needs.

People

Who are the candidates you place in companies?

We work with highly motivated jobseekers and give them the skills that they need to be successful in the workplace. We have hundreds of suitable candidates ready to start work as soon as you need them.

Can I employ people on a short term basis?

Twin’s placement scheme allows employers to take on staff to cover temporary projects or on a trial period to see if the staff member is suitable for the position. Organisations do not have to submit any paperwork for employees on trial until they have decided to offer them a permanent position.

Why should I train my staff?

We can work with you to look at your business objectives and train candidates from your organisation to meet these goals. Our training programmes will introduce accredited qualifications to your workforce, reducing staff turnover rates and removing the need to recruit new people for more skilled positions.
