We have been working with employers to look at the training programmes they deliver and to map these against nationally recognised qualifications. We have found that, in many cases, employers are offering fantastic training to both new and existing staff and that with a few additions, these internal training programmes can develop into industry recognised national qualifications.
But we don’t just tell you what’s missing – we work with you to help devise solutions to suit your business. Ultimately, your organisation can develop and deliver a qualification to any new or existing staff members.
But why bother?
Of course, there are the tangible business benefits of offering staff the chance to gain qualifications. New staff members that have such qualifications settle in more quickly and are productive sooner, saving both time and money for a business.
If you’ve ever faced an issue recruiting suitably qualified staff members, developing a strong internal training programme that’s set against the national qualifications is also an attractive proposition as it widens the pool of people that you can draw from. With the right attitude, new staff members can be brought up to speed with the way your organisation works.
The training opportunities that such an approach offers are also a great way to maintain an engaged and dedicated workforce. Happy staff members mean higher productivity and increased staff retention, saving your organisation time and money when it comes to both recruitment and training.
Delivering training to a nationally recognised standard is also great for the ongoing professionalism of the sector, making our industry more attractive to talented and ambitious job seekers. In effect, everyone wins – employers, employees and the industry as a whole.
