JTL adds online booking to upgraded website

Leading training provider in the heating and ventilating and plumbing sectors – JTL – has significantly upgraded its online support services to both building services engineering employers and individuals considering applying to enter the sector – via apprenticeships and related programmes.
Firstly the charitable training provider’s website has been reconfigured to improve navigation and ease of access to the broad range of subject areas. Simultaneously the company has launched seven dedicated regional sections of the site, containing updated information that is particular to any of the regions across England and Wales. Information includes news items, details of professional development course dates and venues, and specific funding opportunities that supplement national grants.
In a further move JTL has made it possible for potential apprentices to complete their registration details and apply for an assessment test through mobiles and tablets. This is clearly significant as increasingly, work and requests for information through these channels is taking a larger share of online communication. With a bumper year for both the number and quality of applicants to JTL up to the end of July, the company believes that the upgrade activity will add to both the scale and regular usage of the website which consistently attracts over 14,000 visitors each month.
At the same time JTL has introduced a brand new facility for its short course development programmes, allowing those who are already in the industry to apply, book and securely pay on line for individual course places.
“These new developments will greatly enhance a service that independent research has shown is really appreciated by employers,” said Richard Allen, JTL’s Marketing Manager.
The company is also reporting a growing demand for its services at the JTL National Centre for Excellence at Birmingham that was opened last October. Intake streams now include support for local apprenticeships, a ground-breaking programme for traineeships and a stream of full-time students who are completing the first two years of underpinning knowledge that contributes an accreditation towards success on a subsequent apprenticeship programme. An open day at the Centre in mid-July boosted recruitment and a further event geared to school-leavers in 2015 takes place this October.
